Want to share data from one VRS to another VRS. How do I do that?

Hello. I want to share my data with a friend'S VRS and he wants to share his data with my VRS. How exactly could I do that? I think with the rebroadcast function but what IP should I enter and do I have to make a separate receiver for the data my friend is sending me?

I eventually figured it out.

To receiver data from another VRS:
You have to create a new Receiver.
Use Format Basestation.
Tick the box Push receiver and enter the Port you set in the other VRS (in my case 40500).
Create a port forwarding in your router for that port to your machine running VRS.

To share data to another VRS:
Create a new Rebroadcast Server.
Use Format Basestation.
Enter the IP of the other machine running VRS.
Use any unused port you want (in my case 40100).

Would this work if I ran a mobile setup to share data with my home station?

Yes. The tricky part with pushing a feed to another machine on the Internet, particularly where that other machine is a home PC, is that you will need to know the other machine's IP address. Home connections will usually be assigned a different IP address every time the connection is established, they'll be coming out of a pool of available addresses held by the ISP.

You can work around this by signing up for a dynamic DNS account and installing a dynamic DNS client on the home PC. That gives you a name that will map onto the connection's IP address. After that you proceed as above - set up port forwarding at home, push a feed from the laptop to the port you've exposed.

Bear in mind when you come to test this that many routers will not port forward to themselves. If your port forwarding test doesn't work when the laptop and the home PC are both on the same network then try disconnecting the laptop from the home wifi and connect through the mobile network instead.
