SITL MavProxy over network


I’m trying to setup SITL using network connection between and ArduCopter.elf. Is this possible?
When i look at the diagram on then i would say YES, because it’s a normal TCP connection.

I have arducopter running in cygwin on my windows 7 system, and want to run mavproxy on raspberry pi which is connected with a direct lan cable (ip setup is configured and working fine).

What i find strange is that the –master option of mavproxy states that in case of IP it must be the local computer’s IP address. So you can never connect it to a remote system (to control it) ?? I thought that was the basic idea of a GCS ?

Thanks for any insight.
