Tip & How-To about Cell Phones

VPN and IPAD

So far the iPad has been a great hit in our home. From remote access, browsing the web, email and movies. I have only good things to say about this device.

The iPad supports a VPN connection. To configure it.

Go To Settings, Then General, Network. Select The VPN And Move The Slider To On, Then Add A VPN Configuration With Your Server And Account Information.

Two continuous problems that I've had with Safari and seen posted everywhere (these aren't new)-- is there any plans to enable flash support for the mobile browser? I know that ship has probably sailed, but it's still frustrating to hit flash-heavy pages like movie and other entertainment official sites and be completely out to lunch. Another issue I have with mobile Safari is how squished up the page feels when I'm browsing, it's kind of ridiculous honestly. I'm a fan of how simple Apple's stuff is but these two issues make this mobile browser pretty frustrating.


Apple does not support flash on mobile browsers and never will. Flash is on it's way out the door and is no longer being developed by Adobe. If you want to browse a flash website on your iPad or iPhone, there are Alternative browsing apps you can buy on the app store to do it. They are not great and they are primary developed for playing Flash games on the web, not browsing the internet and viewing videos. Too many to list and no real recommendation so just search Flash web browser on the app store and try it out. The only other option I have done in the past was to remote into my home computer from my iPad and open a browser on it and controlled it via my iPad.

The small web page issue you mention has nothing to do with Apple or their products. The website is coded to reduce and change the website based on the browser viewing it. Most times you can select a link at the bottom to view the page in full desktop mode. so the page is converted to reduce and change on purpose because your screen is not big enough to view on a mobile device. Only way to really fix it is to select the option at the bottom of the page to view full desktop version of the page. Some websites are not coded to convert for mobile browsing and some are, so it all depends on the site you are at. Hope that explains it.

how do I check my work emails from home


Which email account ??
Access Work Email From Home
Sometimes, the regular workday isn't enough time to get your day's work done.
Taking work home has become a way of life for many people.
If you're one of these people, the ability to access your work email from home is essential to your success.

Ask your workplace's technical support department for help to log on from home.
Some offices set up web access to your email from home, and your tech support department can instruct how to take advantage of this service.
One popular way employers provide this is through Microsoft Web Access.
With Microsoft Web Access, you can log in using any web browser and access your email from any web-enabled computer.
If your office uses Outlook for email, ask if you can set up your home computer to access your email through Outlook.
You will need your login information and your incoming and outgoing mail servers from your tech support department.


If your company provides POP or IMAP access, visit mail2web.
From the homepage, enter your email address and password to log in to your email from any web browser.

Set up a free Gmail email account.
If you use Outlook for email at work, you can automatically forward all email you receive to your Gmail account.
Gmail also provides automatic filtering features that enable you to automatically organize incoming mail.

Ask your IT department if remote computer access is available. Once set up, remote computer access lets you work from home by accessing and controlling your work computer.
Check your work email at home
Sometimes you want to check your work email at home and vice versa using multiple computers. Here is how

Most people find it easiest to use our web based email system to check for messages while not at the office.
Check with your IT guys to find out what's the URL
However, you want to check your email just like at work, using Microsoft Outlook.
This will require some configuration on your part.
Setup for email programs vary, however your email program will ask for the following information: username, incoming server (POP or IMAP), outgoing server (SMTP), return address, name etc


Open Microsoft Outlook, On the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts
Select Add a new e-mail account, and then click Next.
Select POP3, and then click Next.
In the Your Name box, type your full name the way you want it to appear to other people.
In the E-mail Address box, type your e-mail user name followed by @yourcompany.com.
Under Server Information, do the following:

In the Incoming mail server (POP3) box, type mail.yourcompany.com
In the Outgoing mail server (SMTP) box, type smtp.yourcompany.com.

Under Logon Information, do the following:

In the User Name box, type your user name provided by your company.

In the Password box, type your password.
Select the Remember password check box

To verify that your account is working, click Test Account Settings.
If there is missing or incorrect information, such as your password, you will be prompted to supply or correct it.
Make sure your computer is connected to the Internet.

Hit OK, you're done!

Can't email out on my iPad


Ok, what WiFi network are you using? Have you tried browsing the web? It's quite possible that you are connected to a network that allows you to connect, but not use the connection unless you pay a fee.
If you are using your own network - have you set up iPad Mail correctly? What email provider are you using?
