Re: rs 232 to usb conversion

I wonder why you needed to turn off the firewall and wireless.
If the Anywhere USB is Ethernet compatible, then you should be able to just
add it's address to the current permitted firewall list - (or even enter a
range of addresses, in Norton Firewall Allowed List).
I'm not familiar with the Anywhere product, so I would be interested in any
such limitations.

Subject: [ap-gto] rs 232 to usb conversion

A big THANK YOU to all the folks that provided input as to how to go
about doing the rs232 to usb conversion. Thanks to you, I was able to
do the conversion and control the telescope from over 100 feet away via
an ethernet connection. I utilized an Anywhere Usb/5 adapter from IO
Gear and their rs232 to usb Edgeport/2 converter. CAT5E cable
(utilized as a crossover cable...not straight thru) allowed me to
connect the computer directly to the Anywhere Usb hub. All firewalls
and wireless connections had to be turned off.......Mizzou
