Installed converter standalone, chose the first option (local install I think?)

Convert Machine -> select my powered-off vm...

I can connect and browse the remote VMs, but when I choose Next, Converter spins forever at "Retrieving source machine information..."

Also, am I on the right track to do a remote convert (I'm connected over a 1 megabit link, so the process needs to happen remotely).
