SmartLink access details for my client app

I've been writing my own client app for the Flex Radio for quite some time.  I'm fairly close to completion but have a few more features I want to put in.

Then along comes SmartLink and 2.x...  

I would like to have my app be able to feature the SmartLink login/remote access.  Is there a process to support this?

Do I have to sign up for something, sign an NDA?, download a special API?

I hope to make this client available to people for a very low price.  One feature it will support is both Windows, Mac and Linux (at least that is the plan).

Thanks in advance.

I was told that FlexAPI SmartLink information is forthcoming. We just need to patiently wait.

This SDK supports Flex 2.0 LAN (direct) connectivity but does not contain sufficient information or code to support SmartLink connectivity at this time.

There are three new wan*.cs files in the  FlexLib_API_v2.0.17 package that clearly relate to SmartLink interface but I can't extract sufficient information from the code alone to work out how to drive it. I understand that a white paper on the matter is WIP.

Hello,

now I have the same question. Do I have to contact devhelp@flexradio.com for assistance?
I need documentation about the following use case:

1- Discover and connect a rig over WAN via SmartLink;
2- Properly handle connection fault and related disconnection/reconnection of the client
3- Properly handle a busy rig over WAN via SmartLink.

Thank you very much
Enzo

P.S.: I signed up again to the FlexADP Program. Other times I did it but, after that, nothing happened. How should I go on?
