I cant use splash remote when my pc is connected to my work via VPN, as the ip address changes. So my ipad wont and cant no longer see my pc on the local network.

Also internet discovery wont work.

However if I could specify a proxy server then I would be able to use internet discovery when my pc is connected to work via a vpn.

Most other products allow you to do this and its very useful, see attached screenshot.

Teamviewer and LogMeIn have VPN services but they are not present in the mobile versions (Android, iPhone, iPad).

This would be a great step! Would make our phones access our home networks from anywhere! Not just for remote controlling, but anything that needs to be on the local network. 

Personally I would be able to stream all my videos to my android phone via VLC Stream&Share. Access my HD with ES File Explorer.

This open ports for many features!

I cannot access  my work PC as it is behind a firewall that only has port 80 open.  Teamviewer iPhone app can contact my PC just fine, but has a much slower screen refresh rate.  I'd love to see Splashtop work just like Teamviewer but at its signature faster rate.
