    Can you set up a remote desktop connection from one building to another? What about GoToMyPC or LogMeIn?

    Then you should be able to look at the workstation from either spot.

    You could purchase a device called RoamIO2 and the software to run it.

    It gives you a local interface for VAV's and other infinet or BACNet devices.

    It need a laptop to be used, though. See about getting one from your local branch. Maybe, just maybe, EBay or Craig's list.

    Are there any graphics or listviews built to let you see what the building conditions are?

    You need a old laptop service tool, a emulator, and a old PC. Good luck

    I would not be too quick on the laptop service tool, personally.

    A RoamIO is a device which connects to the Infinet comm bus (RS-485) and allows toy to see some of what is happening in the device. Setpoints, input, output & numeric values and the like. No programming access, tho. They're useful when you need to connect to a VAV that is far away from the Cyberstation.

    I think if i can get them to let me do a remote desktop i can do most of the vav box stuff. i dont even have access to the programing part of the continuum yet so all i can do is make sure the vav's are doing what pinpoint shows it doing and check temp and humidity inputs and the outputs like the reheats, dampers.
    Thanks for your help

    You can use a program called teamviewer to take control of the workstation. Works through any firewall and it has a smartphone app! You can see your frontend with an iphone.

    TeamViewer is nice and it has a free download:

    I haven't used the virtual meeting portion but I have used it to do several driver, firmware and software updates.
    ...and they said it couldn't be done.
