I downloaded and installed the ms remote client for iOS on my mini iPad. Everything works but audio. I cannot get audio out of my iPad. I am running a 6300 with 6.21.
Has anyone used this sw and how did you did the remote audio to work.
Oh, I have gone into the settings and did all 3 selections with no joy.
Any help be appreciated.
Thanks & 73

Marty, I use Android for which Microsoft also offers a version of Remote Desktop. I have great things to say about the Windows RDP client but I can't say the same for the Android version. If the IOS version is similar, audio redirection has been difficult if not impossible for me. I've given up.

The Android RDP app I use is Remotix & there is an IOS version. Of course, I've never used the IOS version so the following assumes similar features between the two. Also, it's not free but I've found the $20 charge to be well worth it.

Using Remotix I've tested receive audio redirection with my Flex 6300 & it worked quite well. There is a setting for redirecting mic audio but I've not tested that yet.

Long ago I settled on SIP clients on my PC & Android tablet for remote audio. At the base station, Windows PC, I use X-lite which is free at www.counterpath.com. On the Android tablet I use Zoiper which probably has a version for IOS. If not, I'm sure there is another SIP client on iTunes. My SIP service provider is Callcentric which is free for calls that are completed between Callcentric extensions + $1.50/Mo. For 911 cost recovery. Callcentric is like a PBX in a box & is wonderful. Set the G711u codec on both ends for toll quality audio.

I hope this helps.
