Based on ideas from George - KF2T and a couple of others in the Flex Community, I got my F6.7K working remotely via the internet today!  I used Google Chrome Remote to connect my remote PC to the station PC that is controlling the F6.7K.

I can see the SmartSDR screen, work all the functions, and send CW via CWX.

I do have a few issues that I am in the process of resolving: 1) I can't seem to get my transmit audio from the remote PC to the F6.7K, 2) I can't figure out how to make the remote image the same size as the shack computer image.

I've been using UltraVNC and TightVNC to remote my Flex radios from Florida to Iowa for several years now.  Both are free and work very well. They provide a screen size nearly identical to the master PC. Both allow the PC having two monitors to be viewed remotely by using a slider to go from one monitor to the other. (Teamviewer, also free to use for hams, has a mode where you can see both monitors at the same time.) I also use SKYPE for the audio connection to the master PC, because it has superior quality with little or no artifacts. I use DAX to connect Skype to the 6700, or virtual audio cable to connect to the 5000. The connection in both cases is internal to the PC requiring no wiring.

I will give UltraVNC and TightVNC a try and see if that fixes my screen problems, thanks!
