I am extremely surprised at the lack of posts about this new functionality added (as beta) in 4.22. I would have thought tons of people would be trying it and reporting their successes and failures. So far I have only seen posts (on reddit) from two people having tried it. Both tried it on LAN and only one succeeded.
Reading through the documentation on it, it seems to me this functionality was intended to function over LAN only. This does not appeal to me (and I would guess not to many others) as I am not working on projects in an office with others - we are not on a LAN.
It would seem to me that this functionality would still work decently between remote networks given a host with a reliable and fast internet connection, whether the dedicated server be modified to accept remote connections or a VPN set up between collaborating machines. However, I lack the proper knowledge to accomplish either of these things.
I had attempted to set up a VPN myself but my lack of experience with VPNs (and networking in general) made it a frustrating and unfruitful experience. I can’t help but feel like someone more knowledgeable would be able to tackle this with relative ease.
So does anyone have any experiences they could share with this tool? Would anyone be willing to try out different methods of making this work with remote hosts?
