    There are numerous apps in the AppStore that accomplish this. I've personally used a few, the most recent and probably my favorite being Jump.

    Did you bother searching "RDP" on the App Store?

    You can use logmein ignision (create a free account at logmein.com add your pc and through your iphone you can have a full access anywhere).
    Teamviewer or VNC

    Well it's here - let's try to make something of the thread. I have iTap, and find it very usable on the iPad, and somewhat usable on the phone.

    How is jump, and what do you like about it? Do they have a trial?

    I like LogMeIn. Mainly because the service is free; the app is $30, though. It has always worked well for me, even over 3G.

    Wes - that's a great name! I use logmein for client machines all the time, but personally I don't want a beacon service running on my machine; most of my remote access is from other machines so I like running vanilla rdp. But good to know LMI has done a good job with their (pricey) app...

    I used the first version of Jump but didn't like it, for RDP Jaadu is ok for me, but haven't used it in a long while.

    Oh, Thanks guys! because when i searched for rdp in Cydia, I found it and I downloaded it; but after that, I dont see no icon or anything.... Also for those people who cried "couldnt you just search the app or did you bother to search for the apps" get off my thread and go cry somewhere else. I post for help and knowledge from other people; not for cry babies like you.
    Thanks

    PS: Sorry, forgot to mention that i have 4.1 jailbroken and I would like to get an app through Cydia

    ive been using winadmin since the appstore. always worked for connecting to windows systems.

    realvnc has a nice relatively cheap app for connecting to osx/linux systems.

    Jaadu makes great client for both of these, but there are far cheaper solutions out there.

    I haven't seen this yet, but similarly, I'd love to see an app (file manager) where I can access the other computers\drives on my network when I'm home on WiFi. I have a iMac and MB Air and a file store on the network what I access from the other computers, but to my knowledge it's not possible to access network shared drives on iPhone yet. Unless someone has an idea of how and I'm mistaken.

    there was a guy a while back working on porting samba to the iphone, but from what i remember it would only let other pc's see the iphone as a network share. not sure if he got around to porting the smb client so the iphone could browse and mount cifs/smb shares.

    i just use dropbox since i don't have a massive amount of stuff i care to share with the phone.

    Yeah Dropbox is good, but the reason I want it is I have a WDTV Live, and a hard drive attached to it. WDTV has an app for iPhone, but it won't delete things off the drive. I have to use my computer to connect to the network drive, then delete them. Would be nice to delete from iPhone.
