You got it, JR A.! Thank you so much!
Now I can find my "top-level" VI's on the System Manager and connect to any of them using the "Connect to Remote Panel...". However, there still are somethings that do not seem right:
1) The system seems to be extremelly slower than when it was running on the host computer. For example, when I open the System Manager and click on "Track VI States" the tool becomes so slow that the memory and the cpu usage trends practically stop updating... (although the update interval is set to 1 second, it seems to update only at each minute!) Is that really expected depending on the complexity of my VI's? The strange part is that the memory usage shown is only around 50% and the CPU usage is pretty much the same as when there is nothing running (around 90% maybe). I included a screen shot of that so that you can easily evaluate if I should expect such a slow operation...
2) When I open one of the VIs' front panel and try to do anything (like clicking on a button or change a switch position), it does not respond. Can't I control the VI's operation by these remote panels? If not, how can I do it then?
Thanks again for your great help!
