    i attempted to use the powershell method on the second link.  it let me initiate the call from my backup server to my deploy server, but after that, it said the target computer is offline.  I believe this to be a result of file and print sharing and ping being off for the backup servers firewall.  So I want to ask is if there is a different way to make this happen I would have no issue using the remote powershell, but i need to know if there is a different way to make a deployable package deploy.

    Disable "Preferences --> Deployments --> Ping before deployment" in Deploy

    and make sure "Preferences --> Scanning --> Offline Settings" is set to "Attempt scan" in Inventory.

    Thank you for the response.

    Both these values were already set to your recommendation.

    I think you'll have to configure Windows Firewall to allow your PDQ machine to reach \\BackupServer\IPC$ and \\BackupServer\ADMIN$. I think you'll also have to allow ping. The good thing is you should be able to create rules that allow only the PDQ machine access.
