Hi Folks
Wish to configure router from a remote machine (what else !! )
using Java.

I think RMI is the thing to use.
Can anyone pls suggest some useful links.

A similiar question was asked a few monthes ago... unfortunately, a lot depends on the specific interface the router offers.

RMI would only work if the router is running Java.
I suspect you want a simple socket connection.
My router gets configured by a Telnet conversation so if this was my problem I would do a Google search for "Java telnet" - when I just did this it turned up several useful links.

Thanks Folks

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
