If we're using free hotspot or LAN network behind NAT, there is no problem about it, however, if remote display behind NAT it's likely we can't access our remote display easily.

Fortunately, for iPad user, there is iTeleport, an apps used for remote display client. It's act as common remote display through LAN but it's not just that. iTeleport has capability to remote a computer display from anywhere in the world (with internet acces, of course) through gmail connection.


One minor issue is keyboard. From screenshot, it's obvious that my mac use dvorak layout, however my ipad keyboard is still presenting QWERTZ keyboard; the result is gibberish character output if we type using default floating keyboard as is. Can be solved by setting back mac keyboard to QWERTZ.

iTeleport can be obtained at iTunes store. Here excerpt description from AppStore.
