So apologies ahead of time if this is vague. Im not up to the wording of a lot of this, so Ill be as simple as I can.
We need to connect to remote devices and send and receive data from them.
They have static ip's and specific ports to connect to, and they are serial devices.
A company I was previously with used fsockopen in php and then fwrite/fread.
I was hoping to get a page created that I can plug into our website that will do the following:
-Have a blank space where you enter the ip address
-Have a blank space where you enter the port
-Have a blank space where you enter the code to be sent to the device (all codes via hyperterminal are control-A, then followed by a letter and 5 numbers, so for example ^I20100)
-A submit button that allows you to send the info and then somehow it receives it back and displays it.
Eventually Id like to incorperate a drop down list of sites that are preprogrammed with ip's and ports and maybe some commands already preprogrammed.
Thanks in advance!
