Yeah you can try connecting via a manual conenction. To do that tap the "+" sign on the Home screen and select VNC. If both your computer and iPad are on the same WiFi network then type in the private IP address. If you are connection externally then type in your public IP address (which you can find at www.whatsmyip.net).
Creating a new manual connection using private IP's solves it. Does that mean I can't use auto discovery? I'll try later to connect remotely over public IP and hopefully that will work. I'll check back in later on, but thanks for your help.
Cool. Sounds like your firewall at work isn't allowing the connection to fully complete. If that's the case then the connection is going to fail over a public IP. You'd have to ask your IT department to forward all VNC requests on port 5900 to your computer. Here are the instructions for a Home router: http://www.wyse.com/products/softwar.../faq.html#RDP4.
