The only thing I know about the dot is that this dot is the local 
pointer. Hence, somehow the remote pointer does not show or is not in sync.

Try the next things to get something going. Set them both local and 
remote but not at the same time:
- Enable mouse trailing: 'display pointer trails' and see if they show.
- If available, use something like 'show location of pointer when I 
press the <ctrl> key. And test that.

It's possible the view is in read-only...
