Hi experts - I would like to be able to either:

a) remotely access a server from my iPhone 4S
OR
b) find an app that will enable me to restart a failed job and some of the tasks you can do in Managment Studio

Thanks for any tips.

Maybe not what you're looking for, but I've used both splashtop and logmein to remote from my phone to my laptop, I'd use that to turn on my VPN, connect to the server and restart the job. It was a few extra hops, but it did what you're asking.

Ooohh, Splashtop on an iphone?! Don't know but I got pretty fat fingers... I'd end up shutting down the server instead of logging off! :-D

It takes a minimal capacity for rational thought to see that the corporate 'free press' is a structurally irrational and biased, and extremely violent, system of elite propaganda.
David Edwards - Media lens

Society has varying and conflicting interests; what is called objectivity is the disguise of one of these interests - that of neutrality. But neutrality is a fiction in an unneutral world. There are victims, there are executioners, and there are bystanders... and the 'objectivity' of the bystander calls for inaction while other heads fall.

I laughed out loud, thanks.

I'm actually one of those rare birds who doesn't even answer my phone while driving.

Thanks to everyone who tossed out an idea. Now I'll do some research.

I have an Android as well. I use splashtop and LogMeIn...


preference to logmein for computer to computer and splashtop for phones/tablets... but that's preference only. both work. logmein works great to fix grandmas computer as well.
