Check the following
1) on the remote server, check that the remote agent service is running
2) open the remote agent utility and make sure that it is publishing correctly to the media server
3) make sure that you can ping from the media server to the remote server and vice-versa
4) make sure that there is no firewall blocking port 10000
5) on the remote server, check that there are no other applications using port 10000.
Lastly, check that you can telnet to port 10000 on the remote server from the media server.
