Static IP - SmartSDR v1.9.7

Thanks a lot implementing that static IP address feature, very helpful in more complex network situations. But it actually looks to me, as form the SmartSDR client side view it's kind of equal to static DHCP leases... Would have expected to tell SmartSDR where to find the radio. 

Now our upcoming multi-OM VPN will be routed across several subnets. Several radios with several VPN clients in different locations. Is there any change to connect to the radio without that discovery broadcast packages? Like tell to Maestro & SmartSDR Windows client where the radio is? That would be the key to not bridge networks like it was in our current approach. I was about to relay broadcast packages into subnets but that is kind of ugly.

Would you see anything else that could stop us from using the radio in a different subnet. DAX etc is unicast, right?

You are 100% correct.  

"Is there any change to connect to the radio without that discovery broadcast packages? "

No, there is not.

Nothing, as long as you can connect the client to the radio and that is done through a broadcast discovery protocol.  SmartSDR for Windows 1.x only supports operating the radio on a single IP subnet.
