Supported topologies

  • Point to Point RS232 (Control-Software / CS )


New hardware development, or extending existing, could embed an ethernet controller like the ENC28J60-SP. It is cheep and does feature enough basics for multicasting networks.


Linux Windows rocnet.dll

Connection types

name type
udp multicast
serial RS232

First Goal

Implement a UDP stub which can use the DDX library:

The stub and the DDX can be installed on some old Windows or Linux computer, and will act like a real command station.
If a small OS is chosen, Windows 95 or a small 2.6 Kernel based Linux like "Damn Small Linux Not (DSL-N)", the HD could be replaced with a small SSD to reduce power consumption and noise.
