When sending program in long-distance (No LAN), adapting Remote
Manager (online) to dial up is inconvenient, because the IP address is
not fixed, and you must check the IP address when connecting it.
However, the Remote Manager (offline) can deal with the
inconvenience. If the company has its own website, and IP address of
the website is fixed, client-side sends the programs to the website,
and service-side get and play the program from the website through
setting time.
