Remote Control Your DHCP Connected Laptop from Your iPad

arcticmac, good catch on the security of the script. I neglected to mention that; thanks for pointing it out. I'm not entirely sure about the script running as a non-root user when no one is not logged in. I think I tested it, but it's been quite some time since I implement this. It may be worth looking into.

As for the launchd suggestion... that crossed my mind in the exact way you mentioned, but I am not familiar enough with launchd to make it happen. I was secretly hoping that someone might know more about launchd than me and post a way to do that. But, you've now forced the secret, hidden agenda, out of me. ;-)
