I imagine this topic may be among the more unique topics to be posted here, but if you kindly would, please indulge me.

 

I currently own both a Windows 8.1 tablet and a Windows XP netbook. About a week ago, I told myself, "You know, it'd be cool if you could turn the tablet into a server and have the netbook act as the client. You could get a bit more life out of the netbook if you could remotely control the tablet." (Yes, I do realize that "a bit more life" is analogous to hooking my netbook up to life support. That's why I asked you to indulge me, yeah.) 

 

After doing extensive research on routers/modems, HDMI cables and related adapters and mirroring software, I figured I should get VNC mirroring software and establish a VPN between my tablet and my netbook. However, it recently dawned on me that I would still have to connect my netbook to the internet, assuming that I don't have an alternative network connection.

 

If possible, I would like to keep my netbook offline (as you can imagine), so I would like to see if anyone has any advice to make a rough idea an actual reality.

Not sure if this is the answer you're looking for or not but you could try splashtop streamer. Install splashtop streamer and the client on both machines and you'll be able to remotely control one machine with the other and vice versa. It's free if you're on the same network but costs something if you're doing it through the internet (it's cheap though, like $20 a year or something like that).
