I'm pretty sure you want to look at the java.net.Socket class. I don't really know how to configure it; hopefully someone else can help here? Or quite possibly it's platform and device dependent. You almost certainly will need some documentation for the devices you wish to connect (at least to tell you what commands are possible, right?) The may well have info on configuration as well. Good luck. I'm moving this thread to "Sockets and Internat Protocols" where there's a greater chance of finding a knowledeable person in this area.
