I have been investigating the possibility of using my PC to control my soon to arrive Mac Mini when on the move. I can't afford and hope you don't give me answers suggesting buying a MacBook. My Mac Mini is the high end type.
Now I have seen that the only viable option seems to be VNC.
But how does this work if I am not on a network?
Does VNC work with an ad-hoc network?
Can a PC be connected to a Mac on such a network?
Can this network be configured once at home and then be available on startup on the move?
If I have an iPhone, can I use it as my wifi? But then, how would I start the Mac Mini to make the connection, since it wouldn't have a screen on the move?
Finally, are there any small portable screens one can carry in a bag?
