Remote CMS

I'm really frustrated with version 4.

I have the BOE 4.0 CMS installed on Server A and it works fine.

Trying to install Data Services 4 on Server B and can't get past the SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise Server (CMS) section. Every time I put in the CMS information for Server A I get:

No valid local SIA nodes exist for the given CMS connection information. You will not be able to install EIM Services (RFC Server, Administrator, Metadata and Viewdata).

I can connect to the CMC on Server A from Server B's internet explorer with no problem, so it's not a network issue. I even place the wrong port number in on purpose to verify, which gives me the message:

Please check the CMS connection information, make sure they are correct and the CMS is up and running, then try again.

Can you not install Data Services on a different server?
