[RDD] Remote "Board Op" from within RDAirPlay

So am I correct in understanding - if you use the option to have a
workstation use caed on another host, will the instance of caed that is
actually playing the audio out to the sound card use the /var/snd that
it sees on its local machine, or will the "remote" rdairplay (running on
the thin client or similar) still be accessing the audio files and
sending them back to the centralized caed?

Just looking for clarification.

In that mode, it’s pretty mature at this point.  I don’t know of anyone who has used it to separate the caed(8) and GUI components over a WAN as yet, but it should be doable.
