OpenCPN and multiple PCs

hey quick question is it possible without using VNC to have openCPN active on 2 PCs at one what I would like to do is this.

on the console I have a mounted toughbook CF-28 that I put together as a chartplotter/GPS I have a networked netbook in the cabin what I would like to to beable to do is plot and make changes to the cf-28 charts so that changes can be made underway by whomever is in the cabin ie add POIs we might want to visit or whatnot. I have been doing this via VNC but was hoping for something more integrated

Thanks,
Yonubear

Re: OpenCPN and multiple PCs

If you can control openCPN from the other computer, what could be more integrated?
You could write POIS on the cabin computer and export it as a gpx to a dedicated folder on the CF28 and then browse to it and open it in OpenCPN.

But To CHANGE a gpx that is already loaded in OpenCPN would be problematic because openCPN copies loaded gpx to herself, so
once the gpx is loaded inOpencpn, you would have to delete the places you have changed but adding new ones would be easy.
You will still have to delete them in the CF28's OpenCPN routemanger to make them go away though.
