Has anyone utilized HamWAN for remote operation of a Flex 6x000?

HamWAN is "a modern, multi-megabit, IP-based, digital network for amateur radio use" and is currently available in the regions around Seattle WA; Memphis TN; and Tampa Bay FL, and is currently pending certification in Kelowna, BC, Canada; Albuquerque NM; and parts of Georgia.

I am planning to establish a connection to this 5 GHz network in Seattle and test out EmComm access to my Flex 6x000 that will be housed at a remote facility that has access to HamWAN. While it doesn't "replace your home Internet connection... it works and acts just like one."

I'm curious if anyone on these forums from Seattle/Memphis/Tampa Bay has experience with Flex over HamWAN? There is interoperability between HamWAN and the general Internet so I'm curious if SmartLink can be used over HamWAN... I'm betting it can.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Is this using the amateur radio class A address scheme of IP addresses?  Was it 41.x.x.x?  Gray matter is just a little fuzzy.

Oh well, 44 instead of 41!  I was close.  I have a small subnet set aside for me here in GA, but haven't utilized it as of yet.
