Maybe some of you guys can help offer a solution to my problems... heres a little background:
Macbook Pro, IPhone 4S, (At home an Airport Express)
I am often on the road quite a bit and this forces me to stay at many hotel's. Thus, I often use public wifi as my main source of connection.
I have many programs on my IPhone that I use to connect to my Macbook via Wifi. Example (Hippo Remote, Keyboard Maestro, VLC Remote Etc..)
The problem is that because I travel quite often, I have to change my setting in all of my programs to the new IP in which I am connected too.
Now; I considered using a DNS service to route my dynamic IP to a static DNS and then run a shell script/Custom API to update the IP with the server. The problem with that is many hotels are strict with their port forwarding.
Then I also considered setting up an Ad-Hoc Local connection with my macbook <--> IPhone. However, this causes me to loose my wifi (Internet) Connection..
Maybe i'm just over thinking all of this right now -- maybe someone can throw some suggestions my way ..
15in Retina MacBook Pro 2.3 Ghz 16GB
IPad 3 - 32GB | IPhone 4S - 32GB

Not sure if around but maybe a wifi USB dongle as access point to make a secondary (and controlled) network. You could try that in combination with the adhoc Wifi function from Mac OS.
Or a second airport express for a travel configuration connected (I don't have one; can it work as access point ?)
In both ways you ca keep the Wifi of the MBP for the hotel connection but still define your known network in parallel.
