Question: how to tell the difference between the local and remote unit
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, we cannot track down a manual for this discontinued product to confirm, but we believe the local unit has a USB cable attached (or perhaps a USB type B slot), while the remote unit has a USB type A slot.
