Hi friends, I have to go on location for VO for a few months and wonder if anyone has had issues or conversely had success with using a personal Hot spot from AT&T to up and down load using SC standard during a session? I run mac pro laptop and protools.4 K LTE network. Thanks so much!
Wireless hot spots can work well with Source-Connect. Like any wireless connection, it is very important to get the strongest possible signal and even then, drop outs are more likely to happen than with a wired connection.
It is also not possible to do port forwarding with many hot spots. Some do support it, but you will still need a get a static IP from the carrier which is typically only available for business accounts and costs something like $500. A great alternative to port forwarding would be to instead rely on the Source-Stream service which is available with Source-Connect version 3.9. This will allow Source-Connect to connect properly even without port forwarding, as long as both sides of the connection have it enabled.
