My desired scenario is to use the iPad as the Mac Mini's primary monitor when traveling. Just to make sure:
If I have an iPad + Luna dongle + Mac Mini with Filevault turned on, and I am at a place where the Mac has no prior internet connection (such as at a library or café), and I have no other monitor, then there is no possible way to log in to the Mac, and as such, I can’t use the iPad + Luna + Mac Mini with Filevault as a mobile alternative to a Macbook? Or would there be a way for the iPad to SSH in, e.g. using an ethernet dongle, and in that way activate the necessary app?
I'm assuming the answer is “unfortunately, no”, but I would like to hear from anyone who has solved this scenario; it would be hugely practical for me. Also open to other solutions than Luna's dongle.
(Alternatively, is there a convenient replacement available for FileVault just for the user's Documents folder?)
