Good point, however the primary factor driving the "big bucks" was the cost of the Microsoft SQL software. In lieu of continuing with the WebOps product, Trane released Tracer ES v2 (Enterprise Server version 2) a few months ago, which now supports SQL express which is the free version of MS SQL. So based upon this info (2 BCU's, own hardware, free SQL Express) you should be able to procure the ES software for under 2k, which would grant you access to that system from any internet connection (no specific laptop, database, or remote access software).
