As I describe here, people actually trying to use RemoteAdmin have had numerous difficulties.  The problems are even worse than I first realized.  RemoteAdmin requires a ton of tweaking if you are trying to use it on a non-gateway device.  I have updated the description of RemoteAdmin here, along with suggestions for dealing with these problems.

Microsoft in general and I in particular apologize for having touted this so much.
