You could use a VPN, and redirect the com-port or USB (or whatever) that 
the amp is hung on, down the VPN to appear as a virtual port for the 
Dashboard software running on your remote PC.

For Serial port redirects, look at Eterlogic VSPE tool.  100% free, and 
*Very* good.  No encryption or data security, so you will need a VPN to 
carry it.

Much as a lot of remote rig control works, like HRD and others I've used 
via the Hamachi VPN (now part of LogMeIn.)

If you can get it working via the shack LAN from one PC to another, then 
it should fly over a VPN OK.  Unless any data handhake timing is very 

Is there any clue in the amp's manual, as to it's control codes and 
responses etc?

Just an idea.

With a great assist from Molly at RF Concepts we got the correct HEX 
files loaded into the 9500.  It came back to life.  Even works with the 
collocated server a la PC control.  Its a clunky dash board but a hopped 
up new release is promised; soon I hope.  

The down side is there was no joy when the server was accessed via the 
Internet.  All the programs running with dash boards on the screen are 
fully operational via the Internet... rotor control, antena relays, 
Kenwood, SKYPE, MSWord, etc. using LOGMEIN, VNC Tight or UltraVNC but 
that ALPHA 9500 dash board will not play, it doesn't display anything, 
won't accept button clicks, it just sits there, geez. So, no QRO for the 
>99% Internet Remote station till it gets figured out.  Oh, I miss my 87A 
;-( Molly was able to control the 9500 remotely using WEBX.  I wonder 
what the difference might be between the screen scrapers and WEBX?  

Thoughts Welcomw,
