HippoRemote Tip #11 – HippoRemoting With No Internet (Mac Edition)

without comments

Sometimes, there’s just no WiFi network available. Does this mean no HippoRemote? Not always. If your Mac has an AirPort card (and virtually every Mac does), instead of using it to connect to a WiFi network, you can use it to create your own wireless network! Tell your iPhone or iPod Touch to join your new network and HippoRemote will work as always.

Here’s a link to an Apple support article on how to create your own wireless network:

Creating a computer-to-computer network

If you haven’t done so already, you’ll also need to go through HippoRemote’s setup.

Lastly, go into your iPhone’s WiFi settings and join your new network. Fire up HippoRemote and your Mac should be automatically detected!
