Remotely Control Surface Rt

Are there any apps that would allow me to remotely control my Surface from my iPad2?

 

In the past, I have used Splashtop to control my PC from my iPad.

 

Thanks.

by the way, scoobyx:

 

I have a Windows Phone - Lumia 900.  Just in case this is an option, although I'd prefer the iPad screen.

 

thanks.

Hiram, while I don't know that I would use this as your final answer, I did some looking around and couldn't find anything that I think would work. With the RT, I know RDP isn't available. That essentially leaves you with having to rely on an app that will allow for remote control. Again, to the best of my knowledge, there's no such animal. I know this isn't the answer you were looking for but hopefully it helps you out.

I tried Teamviewer on Surface and iPad, but from the looks of it, it is to use them to control a desktop. 

 

What I want to do is control my Surface, but apparently the app for the RT is just to use the Surface as the "controller", not "controllee".  This would require that the Surface have the desktop app, and I don't think this is available.

 

Not familiar with LogMeIn. Will look into it.

 

thanks.

The RT can control other systems with LogMeIn, but it cant be controlled with LogMeIn. When you set up a computer to be controlled with LogMeIn, you are downloading a small app that will not run on the RT.

Ah. That was my question. I was hoping since, AFAIK, the applet is in Java, that it would be able to run on the RT.
