(1) Functionality of the Griffin Powermate Knob on the client (control) computer
(2) Functionality and speed tests on tuning the VFO and sending CW over the network.
Now I was eager to exercise this option from outside the LAN. I fired up the LogmeIn client and found that the remote desktop is offline. What happened? Did the computer sleep? The only way to find out is to go home. Now to figure out a way to wake the computer from the internet - a concept called Wake on LAN (Local Area Network).
Upon returning home - the computer was in sleep mode. I set up Windows device manager to wake the computer up via the Local Network or LAN - we will see how that works
In the video below I demo using the Griffin Powermate as a tuning knob. The small Microsoft Surface tablet is the Client computer on the control end. There is no need for a remote desktop connection. There is a need still for audio voice over IP (VOIP) through Skype.
