Maestro Remote Softether Issue

I have Softether Server installed on the shack PC and it has worked fine for months when using a Laptop or Ipad remotely.  Last week I decided to follow the video instruction on setting the remote laptop up with Softether Bridge to allow the Maestro to be used remotely.  On the remote laptop I am using the Wifi connection to access the WAN side and make the VPN connection back to the Softether server in the shack.  I am then creating the bridge to the installed ethernet adapter in the remote laptop and attach the Maestro to this ethernet adapter with a physical network cable.  All the VPN and Bridge connections seem to work.  However when I start up the Maestro it goes thru it normal startup and brings up the SmartSDR GUI showing the VFO A and VFO B information but there is no spectrum display or waterfall showing (no audio also).  Looking at the Network info in the Menu it appear to show a IP address on the shack network.

Does anyone have a idea of what setting I am missing or have incorrect?

Problem Solved!  

While investigating the Maestro subnet I found that the Maestro ethernet adapter which can be viewed from the Advance menu on the connection screen showed that the ethernet adapter was set to Static and it should be set to DHCP so that it gets assigned a address from the Softether Server network on that network.  I have no idea how this setting was on Static.  I have always run the Maestro with a wireless connection so I can only assume it came from the factory this way as I have never been in the Advance menu.

Ria and Mike thanks for your help.  I appreciate it.
