Accessing a client's serial port printer over the internet.
Posted on 2002-04-15
I'm working on a Java based web site, where the only people who will access the site (registered users with userid/password logons) have slip printers attached to a serial port on their PC's.
I know I can access serial ports of the server computer using the javax.comm API, but can I access the serial port of a client machine over the internet? If so, how?
