Live Edit - Does it work Remotely

I really like live edit - using the demo version of webstorm for 30 days but I will be buying it or PHPstorm.

I have setup a project  and connected to a remote server. When I save my files (css in this case) are auto uploaded to the remote server, all good so far.
However live edit doesn't work even though I have live edit working on local server.

Does live edit work on remote website or just local?

Hi Mark,

As far as I'm aware it works with local server only: "if uri resolves to local net, so, it is inspectable (regardless domain name and domain zone)".

LiveEdit bundled with WS/S 5.0 contains bug related to this logic, fixed in 5.0.1.
