Using skycontroller and olympe on different lans

hi
does anyone here have any idea if its possible to connect to the skycontroller from olympe software from a different lan?

eg my olympe ip is 10.1.1.1/24
skycontroller is 192.168.53.1 connected via USB to a ubuntu laptop on network 10.1.1.2/24
this laptop is suppose to forward the commands to the sky controller. i could forward the tcp and udp ports using iptables but somehow i still cant detect the sky controller on startup. if its a direct connection or on the same lan there’s no problem.

can anyone shed any light on this on how u might have solved it?
