I have just
successfully connected via the Remote add-on to my old laptop
upstairs. I have the most up-to-date copies of the addon,
NVDA and W10 on this machine but my old laptop has Windows XP
on it so NVDA and the add-on are old versions.
For a successful connection using a relay
server, Connection dialog controls should be set as follows:
1st control should be set to
“Client” on both computers.
2nd control must be set to
either “Controlling” or Controlled”. If both computers have
the same setting, you will get silence.
Host: should be identical on both computers
Key: should be identical on both computers.
F11 toggle only works on the Controlling

i have never got the addon to work either
