On the remote connections under Plug-ins, would be nice to be able to pick which connection interface you want to use. For instance, sometimes you have the ethernet cable plugged and also the wifi. And there's no option to select which of them you want to use for the remote connection. The only solution so far is disabling (unplugging) the interface you don't want to use for then allow Photoshop to connect with the desired (and single available) interface to just then reenable all interfaces again.

There is no need for an option, and no need to unplug anything -- Photoshop sees whatever is on the network with your computer, just like any other application using the network on your computer.

Thanks Chris,

Bu that is exactly the problem. Photoshop picks an unwanted connection. For instance I specifically created an ad hoc connection with my phone, because where I work, phones connect in a different network than computers therefore the ad hoc. The problem is that photoshop seems to prefer the ethernet connection and pick that one to use as the remote. And that's why unplugging the cable works, PS finds the only available connection and broadcast that one.

The application can use all the network interfaces available on your system, even if you have multiple networks (which is how we tested the features).
There might be an OS issue on your system where the ad-hoc network is not correctly handling the connections.
