This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
We want to be able to dial up a machine, do a quick username/password authentication, then establish a TCP/IP connection over the modem to transfer info via socket.
Since this is windows ( in some cases linux ) box, leveraging RAS might be an issue (presumably this would require some JNI work). Can you provide any thoughts/direction on this? Steps
1. Windows/linux ... connecting to RAS(windows) 2. first connect using serial port to the ras server i.e java comm api. 3. then socket over serial port ....??? how do i direct the socket client to connect to the ip over serial link..
The application installed on the Windows Environment (RAS) communicates only through the TCP port 6969.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
