Collector paired with VRS network connected Trimble R2's on Surface Pro's having a compatibility issue

Hello all,


I am trying to use Collector with a VRS network corrected Trimble R2 GPS receiver on a 2017 Microsoft Surface Pro running Windows 10. I can connect the R2 and everything else just fine on the Microsoft device and through the Trimble GNSS Status app to connect to the VRS network (through NTRIP). The problem i'm running into is that once I'm in the Collector environment Collector will not display the NTRIP corrected positions, only the SBAS positions for some reason. (which is not accurate enough)


It is worth noting that I have gotten this exact same setup to work flawlessly on our iPad Pro's. Unfortunately, the agency I work for needs to make these work on Surface Pro's because of the power and functionality that they offer over iPad's for field crews.


Because the iPads are able to run this VRS/R2 setup so effortlessly I suspect that it can be done somehow on the Surface Pro's as well. Is this issue i'm having just a matter of settings adjustments on the Surfaces so that NTRIP corrections can be displayed in Collector -or-  is NTRIP connections just not supported by Collector on Windows 10 devices?


I assume i'm not the only one trying to use this particular configuration and I've been trying to make it work for over a month, so any info on this would be a huge help.
