Network Question re: Macbook Pro + Pro Remote

I am at home and everything is working perfectly between my Macbook Pro and iPad (great app by the
way!).

We don't have internet in our studio space, so I was trying to get this all to work here at home without
the usual networks we use to connect to the internet, and I'm not having any luck.

I've been trying to use internet sharing/create a network on my macbook. I haven't succeeded yet.

I'll keep trying to get the right combination of settings (I have seen stuff about this on the forum and
elsewhere), but I just wanted to make sure that I am totally correct that there's no need for a connection
to the actual internet in order for the wifi connection to work. Is that right? I'm asking this embarassing
question only because at the moment I can only get this to work on my networks that are connected to
the internet.

Which leads to question #2 - those networks are coming from a router, so does that mean I just need to
create an internal, no-internet wifi network with a router, and connect my laptop and iPad to that?

Apologies for the remedial nature of these questions, but hopefully that will mean they will be trivial for
you to answer, and therefore won't be too much of a pain in the butt.

thanks,
st

Yes, you can create a network from the airport menu on your Mac
and then connect your iPhone to that wifi network. You don't need
Internet access, just wifi between your Mac and iDevice.

Once you have your iDevice on the network you created you should
be able to connect with ProRemote. If not send us a note at our
support email address.
