Hi All!

Recently I setup a VPN connection to test updating Watchout shows remotely over the Internet.

So far this setup kind of works but has issues that perhaps someone could illuminate...
I am able to update a show, downloading pictures and go online with a show to move it along the timeline BUT using space bar or play arrow does not start or stop show.

My setup: I am using a win7 64bit laptop with a Verizon PC card in order to have an outside IP to connect to my office LAN via VPN. The VPN connection is working. I am able onto my network.

Any ideas on whats going on?
has this ever bit successfully done before?

thanks for any help.

Are UDP and TCP/IP traffic able/allowed to pass over your VPN?
This is necessary for proper function.

Updating shows over the internet is generally a tricky thing to do.
