Is it possible to share the screen OR remotely ssh login to a Mac that has no user logged in, i.e. it's sitting on the login screen after power-on/restart? The Mac in question uses macOS 10.15.6(ish).
I'm having a problem with getting the monitor to wake up properly, connected to a Mac Mini 2018 - purchased two months ago.
( The monitor problem is the original, but separate, long story problem on its own so I'll leave it out for now, if you're interested check out lots of threads over the net about it, especially https://discussions.apple.com/thread/8623270 - the original problem itself warrants its own thread(s))
So from a powered-up state, if I power on the Mac mini, as the monitor won't turn on properly, but I suspect that it actually might be on (because the power LED is on), it maybe ends up on the macOS login screen. The Mac mini itself has screen sharing and remote login turned on, so I was wondering if it should be possible to remote login to this computer from another Mac etc. Current attempts however; I haven't been able to spot the computer on the network. It doesn't show up in Network in Finder. I've tried pinging "mac-mini.local" etc, to no avail. The network name of the Mac mini should be just that, the default "Mac Mini". My idea is, if I can login to the monitor-less Mac Mini, I can make sure it's even "alive".
