I'm pretty sure you are overestimating how easy this would be if he was collaborating with one of the main tech guys. The blue screen visible on Postles phone screen also suggest this is how they did it. If you didn't see the video I posted, you should do it. It's not long, but very informative and interesting.The inside man could do that. However, it would require explicitly allowing external access to the devices on the internal network. If the inside man had access to the core router on the network, Stones' security is even more lackadaisical than we already believe.
More than that, routers work by storing a table of how remote and local addresses map together. If records from Postle's phone company can verify the IP address history of his phone, and the router has not be restarted in the interim, then this table will definitively prove that Postle accessed the computer processing hand information. That can be considered a smoking gun for the question "Did Postle cheat".
So, the takeaways:
- Remote access is a technical possibility, but would not be possible without additional configuration on the router/firewall.
- Remote access is wildly less secure from a "let's not get caught" perspective.
- Remote access uses a ton of data. Local access uses none.
It is not an issue of the wifi accepting outside devices, it is simply an output option from the streaming software that lets you share the URL and anyone with that URL can get the info directly to their device with windows media player, no matter what network they are connected to. If you watch the video I posted you see how easy it would be to set this up if he is collaborating with Taylor(?) the tech guy behind the curtain. (Which a lot of evidence is suggesting, but no guarantee of course).
