Re: rs 233 to USB conversion

I ran a cat5e cable from my in-house router to my observatory. At the
observatory, I have a digi AnywhereUSB box that allows up to 5
attached USB devices to be transparently accessible from any PC on the
network. Attached to the AnywhereUSB is a digi Edgeport/421 that has
1 parallel, 2 rs232 and 4 USB inputs and one USB output that is
connected to the AnywhereUSB. I also have a digi Edgeport/2c attached
that provides 2 more RS232. So I have a total of 7 USB, 4 rs232 and 1
You may think that that's overkill, but I'll be using all 4 of the
rs232's: 1200GTO, MaxDome, Clarity I, STV from the start. If I need
to add more, I'll just go back to digi (www.digi.com).
I'm adding a Ethernet switch in the observatory so I can simply plug
my laptop into it into the switch when I'm working in the observatory.
It will also allow me to add ??? over IP devices when needed.
