Trying to run WSJT-X for FT8 and JT-65, DAX  works great for LAN but when
running WAN, the DAX does not work.

???

FT8 at Starbucks maybe is out via REMOTE with v2.0.19 with WAN

It is in the FAQ for 2.0 that DAX is not implemented (yet) for WAN. There are work arounds  that others have mentioned in the threads here.

One is to setup a VPN connection another would be to use third party virtual audio cable drivers.

DAX in its present form uses significant bandwidth.  We are planning to reduce this before making it available via WAN.

can you fix the problem where the display (spectrum and waterfall) doesn't work on some networks at the same time?

I'm not sure I'm aware of this problem.  Does it work differently with a smaller panafall window?  In other words, can you resize SmartSDR smaller and then does it work?
