I recently bought a PS4 and have been looking into buying a PS Vita for remote play while I am on business trips. However, before I was able pull the trigger (pun intended) and go buy a Vita, I was pulled away again on another trip. Normally I would happy just waiting until I returned home but my trip was extended an additional week so it will be at least another 10 days before I am able to buy the vita and be home to pair it with my PS4.
This got me to wondering that if I bought the Vita during my trip if there was any way that I may be able to pair it remotely. I have read a few sites that have stated that you must be at the location of the PS4 in order to pair the devices but I was curious if there was any way around this.
My question is does anyone know exactly which mechanism the vita uses to pair with the PS4; Bluetooth, Wifi, Other? Would I be able to use some sort of tunnel such as a VPN to 'fake' my location to being at home so that the devices could pair with each other? I do have a tech-savvy roommate at home that would be able to set up such a connection if we can verify that 'remote pairing' is even possible.
