RemoteQTH and Rig Control

Looking to remote my 6700 and use RemoteQTH as the brains of the operation for remote on, antenna switching and other stuff.  

I've seen a YouTube video on how someone got the QTH server to connect to a Flex via USB and follow band data for automatic antenna switching, but doesn't really explain how it was setup.  That's what I'm looking for.

There is zero documentation on the web on how to accomplish this, even on the RemoteQTH forums, there is only a few posts regarding connecting a Flex.  I'm wondering if anybody in this group uses RemoteQTH to get band data from their Flex for auto switching and how you specifically set it up?

If you don't use RemoteQTH, what do you use to accomplish this?  Green Heron?  4o3a IP switch?

Hi, I use the USB to BCD cables to connect this cable to the BCD input of the 4o3a antenna switch. Most switches accept BCD coded steering.

I run a fullly remote operated 6700 with no PC at remote radio end. You may also connect the 4o3A antenna Genius switch to the 6700 over LAN and then steer it with a local PC which have the Windows applicaton över a VPN tunnel between local PC and remote radio LAN.
