Remote 'UPDATE' issue

I'm running a 6300 with latest version software 'at home'.  I am now 600 miles from home and when I try to remote, I get a message that I need to 'UPDATE' and that updating remotely is not possible.  I seem to recall I had this same issue once before but was able to get around it some how.  That 'fix' eludes me now (hey, I'm OLD!)

Could it be that the version running on your (remote) PC does not match the version in the flex 6300?  Try installing another version that matches the one in your Flex Radio.  As far as I recall, more than one can co-exist on your PC..    73

Remote access your pc from your portable device using Teamviewer..on your pc and your portable device..leave teamviewer running open on your pc and use it on ur portable device to access the settings back home to run updates for your radio etc...great app thats available on windows andriod and im sure iOS too..regards..francis ..ei3gqb..dublin ei..

Francis I like your suggestion,
However, you can also setup your computer by going into the Wake on Lan (WOL) To  turn on remotely in your motherboard BIOS.

Yep, you guessed it!  Suddenly dawned on me shortly after the post.  Sorry for wasted bandwidth!
