Re: Gnd.stn. in a LAN ?!


Instead of HTML, you might consider remote desktop/application sharing.

This can easily be accomplished today using the current version of Microsoft
Netmeeting in remote desktop sharing mode. I've done it at my home over my
small home LAN, to control WiSP and PSK31.  (It even works quite well over a
28,800 modem) Only one user can be logged on the station at a time, tho.
LINUX has a similar remote desktop/application sharing functionality  (an
acronym that begins with the letter "A", but I forget it's name).  UNIX has
had this ability much longer than Microsoft.  Our data labs at work use the
UNIX version of this over a LAN daily to control applications remotely.  You
could have two instances of control, one that limits the user to everything
except transmit, each password protected.  The UNIX version could probably
be IP address protected as well...
