Maybe I do not understand your setup.  If you are networking all of your CT computers, then the packet spots that connected to one computer will appear on all of them.  There is no need for a second packet feed.  If your computers are not networked, then you need to have a packet feed to the separate computer to get spots.  In that case, your logs will not be linked.  Maybe you mean connecting the second operating position to the other network via 70cm instead of a serial or ethernet?  In that case, it should work too.  It has nothing to do with your packet spot connection.
