I have quite a few users wanting a remote access solution for their iPads. We don't allow remote connections to our network that are outside of our control, so it must go through our Barracuda SSL VPN. Since Apple did not provide support for Java and Flash, they're out of luck. Any chance of a Remote Desktop Client that works with HTML5 on iPad?
Version 2.1 of the Barracuda SSL VPN will contain support for iPad via IPsec and PPTP. Once configured, you can use an RDP app to connect via SSL to your resource.

if you are using Firmware 2.1, you should be able to use PPTP or IPSec to connect your iPad or iPhone. you can use any RDP app from apple store; I have tried it and it works. there is an app called RDP. it's free; you just neet to set up IPSec to connect your iPad or iPhone.

I can see this is an old thread, however things have moved on slightly so I think it's worth bringing a bit up to date. We now have a new mobile-friendly user interface for the SSL VPN (in firmware version 2.5) including automatic IPsec provisioning for iOS devices. Unfortunately we don't currently have any HTML RDP apps built-in (although these are coming ASAP!) but I've evaluated a third-party HTML5 solution called ThinRDP which works quite nicely with my Android devices (Nexus 4 and Nexus 7). The phone screen is a little cramped (as is the tablet screen, realistically) but it's usable if you have a particular need for it.

Adding to Gavin's comments above, we are looking to implement HTML5 application support in an upcoming firmware release, dependent on the results of performance tests etc.
