Using Capital Free Version for remote location

We currently have a remote shop location in Rockhampton that we send stock to but have no ability currently to track their sales nor stock.

Putting a full blown Infinity POS system (which is our current POS) in this location is not viable due to the cost.

Is it possible to use the Capital "Free Version" downloadable from the Capital Office website for:
1. A remote shop location as their Point of Sale and
2. Interface this remote location via ADSL into a licensed Capital head office site to
3. Allow us to track stock, sales, etc?

Any suggestions or inexpensive alternative options would be appreciated.
Has anyone attempted this?

Unfortunately, this would not work. The Infinity system lets you operate standalone sites that then talk to each other. CAPITAL does not have this sort of functionality, distributed access would require a single system that is accessed via RDP.
