Receiving events from remote object.

I developed a simple ActiveX Exe "server" which provides
Notify objects. The Notify class has a Event which is used
to broadcast a message to "clients" sharing the object

I first tested it locally and it works fine. With multiple
instances of my "client" program running locally (and connected to a local server), each one receives the
event notification.

Now I would like to distribute this, so that the "server" runs on a remote machine. I prepared a remote installation with the setup wizard and the remote automation connection
manager

However, I get an automation error when I declare my variable with events.

Dim not1 As Notifier
Dim WithEvents not2 As Notifier

Set not1 = New Notifier -> no error
Set not2 = New Notifier -> automation error when server
                           connection is remote


Is there a limitation on using events from remote applications? Or did I overlook something in setting
my application properties?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
