Remote install

Is it safe to install the new software for the Maestro remotely?

I have a PC connected to the LAN at the remote site and have a switch connected to the remote on and off on the Flex but do not have anyway to completely remove the power from the Flex 6400.

Would it be smarter to wait until I can visit the remote site to do the upgrade?

    From Tim's release Notes (emphasis added):

    CAUTION: If you are updating a remote radio using a VPN, having the ability to turn off and on the DC power supply and being able to reboot the radio using the REM ON connector should be a prerequisite before upgrading the FLEX-6000.

    Since you can not remove power from the radio remotely, you need to wait until you can do that, either remotely or in-person.
