Longtime TeamViewer user deciding to give Splashtop Personal a try, just to manage a Windows PC from a new iPad. Getting nowhere:
1. First I tried local mode as I am experimenting with two devices on the same network. Installed iPad client app from the App Store and the Windows background app from the Splashtop web site. I get stuck on the iPad prompting for a security code for the PC even though I have this disabled on the PC. Stuck.rebooted pc to no effect. I had to add the PC manually with its IP address FYI if that is any clue to my problem
2. So assuming it’s a bug with local mode, I abandoned that and created a Splashtop account. Now I can see my PC in the iPad add with its actual windows computer name (rather than its IP address) so I know something is resolving properly. However when i click on it, instead of it showing me the windows PC screen, all I get is a window offering purchase options and a “restore purchases” option in the top right corner. Stuck again.
Am I doing something wrong? I don’t even mind throwing a little money at this but there’s no way I would do so given this experience with Splashtop so far and not seeing it actually work AT ALL. Thanks for any advice.
