Have 2 remote stations one 6500 and one 6600M on 2 different IP locations can i have someone use one remote and I use the other if so do i need two separate Smart accounts. one of the remotes is in my home and would use a LAN in the home. The other is 2miles away and is on a separate cable Wan. I would like to use the home flex when someone is using the remote. Is this possible and do I need two Smart accounts.

I have two 6500's and I operate them separately at the same time: One on my iPad, and the other on my computer using the same account. One 6500 is located 100 miles away and the other is here in the shack.

I don't think you need two SmartLink accounts, I think you simply need to register each of the radios in your SmartLink account, then pick the radio  you want to use when you connect to SmartLink from a remote location.  For someone else to use one of your radios (with your permission, of course) you'll have to give that person your SmartLink login credentials so he/she can log into the account.  As far as I know, it is OK for both radios to be active at the same time via SmartLink.

Multiple radios can be associated with one SmartLink account.  Multiple SmartLink accounts can NOT be associated with one radio.
