This isn't really a Quicken question, so here it is in the water cooler area.
There are times when I'd like to look at QWin from my iPad. My Quicken runs on a Win10 Pro x64 PC. The question is what are the best PC-based server and iPad-based client that would let me access my PC over my home WiFi? Internet access not needed or desired, just LAN.

    I would be inclined to use Remote Desktop, mostly just because I have Windows 10 Pro installed on my machines and as such, it is built-in, and works fine.

    There are VNC viewer/server versions available for most platforms, you might look into one of them.
    I use it to control my headless Raspberry Pis.

    -also older versions as needed for testing

    I actually use Remote Desktop to control my Raspberry Pis.   ;)

    Thanks. I was unaware Microsoft supplied an iOS RDP client. It's not easy to find on the Apple App Store, either, being named "Remote Desktop Mobile" and nothing obviously identifying it as MS.
    It works. Now I just have to master the mouse emulation.

    Depending on what you are doing in Quicken, and iPad size/resolution... you might be able to use the touch input for some things.
