I have bitcoind hosted on a local machine and I would like to set up a remote client to do some bitcoin URI testing on another local machine. I have Bitcoin-QT installed on the client and updated client bitcoin.conf as following

rpc_connect = #Address of host

In the client Bitcoin-QT, I copy the receiving address and try to have the host send regtest coins to the address with the command

bitcoin-cli -regtest sendtoaddress muteqiroK9LNRAUppnicQepBhPvaEuW8TG 1.00

This does not work. Can anyone give me some direction as to how I would get this working?

Thank you!
