Is it possible to remote into a Mini Mac running OS X Server without a STATIC IP? I have a folder/data on the Mini Mac at work I want to access from home. Thanks

Doesn't matter if the IP is static or not, as long as you know what the IP is at the time you want to remote control the server. Having a static IP just means you'll know what the IP is at all times so it's more convenient and means you won't have to keep checking and changing your connection settings.

Alternatively you could use a service like DynDNS to set up a static DNS name which will follow your connection no matter what the IP changes to.
