I am using VNC to control the remote computers for everything other than CDJ. The Slinke is connected to a dedicated home automation computer in my wiring closet. I prefer not to sit in the closet to run that computer. So,
1) I use dcom to run cdj on my main computer and control the slinke on the home automation computer. I prefer this to remote computer control because remote control involves slower screen updates and slower mouse response, etc.
2) I use VNC to do all other work on the home home automation computer. The slower screen updates, etc. are offset by the comfort of the chair at my main computer.
