Is there a way to send up a campaign/timeline to send a post to another station/campaign to tell it to play a specific timeline?

For example... If Station #1 is playing through movie trailers and it starts playing the movie trailer for Jurassic Park, I'd like it to send a command to Station #2 for Station #2 to start showing the movie poster for Jurassic Park.

I've been able to successfully set up Station #2 to listen for the event and it works when I run the command from terminal - curl "http://[localipofstation#2]/sendLocalEveventName=jurassicpark" but I can't seem to figure out how to properly get Station #1 to send the message appropriately to Station #2.

Any help or workarounds for this would be much appreciated, thanks!

work around would be run a ext app command loading a batch file with the curl command on a different channel that is synced with the video you want to play back.
