Using "remote" configuration mode in "standard" configured FPGA

I have a design which is updated remotely using the Altera Remote Update module. To make this function correctly I need to set Assignments->Device->Device and Pin Options->Configuration Mode to "remote".

Would there be any problem with using this bitstream in standard mode ? Put another way, if the remote option is set does the FPGA expect something in order to function correctly or will it operate normally.

Thanks in advance.

The setting is intended to let Quartus know that possible remote update will be happening in this design. I dont see any downside here.

Yes, if you are using it with remote update, you should change it to remote.

Hi @YuanLi_S_Intel 

My question was more: what would happen if you enabled the "remote" configuration and had an Intel Remote Update in your design, but did not necessarily intend to use it to update an application. Is there any downside to having it there?

Thanks.
