Hi All,

I've been reading up a fair bit on ways to connect my Leo II to my home network. I have read about the EPS1 Guy and some others have used but I cannot get my hands on one of these and everything else I have found seems to be too bloody expensive.

Ideally, I would like to spend around the $50AUD mark.

Lying around in an old box of computer crap I have is a serial to ethernet adaptor. Its an Xircom Pocket Ethernet III Adapter (PE3-10Bx) although they are no longer supported. I'm not sure if this is going to be helpful in my mission.

Eventually, what I would like to be able to achieve is;

- Connect to the Leo using Cmax on any PC on my LAN
- The Leo to have a Static IP on my LAN
- Be able to send X-10 & IR commands from the internet (remotely) and have my Leo issue them.
- Be able to send X-10 & IR commands from my Pocket PC and have my Leo issue them.

Before I even start thinking about sending commands, I first need to get the Leo II onto my network.

This is where I need some help! What are my options? I can solder if a serial/terminal server kit exists.

Cheers
Sash

i'd imagine you probably already considered it, but one solution could involve just a PC hooked up to the Leo running a VNC server, to which you could connect from anywhere. you could set the PC up to sleep with inactivity and wake on LAN/WAN for power consumption reasons.

i've got something similar set up. incidentally i have found this setup useful when i don't have access to a PC and need to view a particular web page, by connecting to the home PC via VNC on my Palm device.

just to throw the thought out there...

Yeah, I have considered this but I do not like running a PC all the time.

I did this for a while when running an apache server and it shit me having the computer on all the time.

I'd really just like to network the Leo just like all my other PC's (3), my printer, my Pocket PC, dreambox DM500S and my IP camera.

Surely, there has to be a cheap solution.

Cheers
Sash
