Is Apache running as a service?  If so, your problem here may be with 
permissions--PSRemote is running as one user (Correy Edmed?), while 
PSRemoteTest is running as another (LocalSystem, or some other system 
account).  In such a case, PSRemoteTest and PSRemote might not be able 
to talk to each other.

I don't know what you could do about that--you'd have to talk to whoever 
wrote PSRemote.
