Im going remote and have tested out Teamviewer for camera and guider control with no problem.... the bigger question is will Teamviewer allow control of the mount (Atlas EQG) while using Stellarium or CdC for proper operation?
Thanks.

Yes it will, from multiple computers and tablets if necessary. Anything that can run on the Observatory PC can be controlled by Teamviewer. You can also transfer files as well.

Works with both android and IOS devices as well as Windows.

It will depend on your network connection speed. Also, select to turn off desktop wallpaper in the settings. This helps speed things up a bit.

I use Teamviewer to control my Atlas with EQMOD, CdC, and Backyard EOS, and PHD guiding. All can be controlled from a desktop PC or with my Acer A500 Android tablet with no issues at all. In fact it is quite nice to control an imaging session from the comfort of the livingroom couch using the tablet!
