Desktop to laptop file transfer and Wifi Command and Control from desktop to Eddie Platform RRS feed

  • Question

  • I currently have the development system  on my desktop, along with it loaded on the laptop for the Eddie platform.  I am a newbie intiallly I had the Eddie controller card plugged to my desktop development machine.  I did this to verify that I could send comands using the Parallax serial terminal.  Now that I have a laptop on my eddie platform I have the following questions.

    1. How do I easily send commands from my desktop system to the laptop, and also I how shall I best transfer files to the proper location to the laptop?

    2. Can I control eddie platform from desktop using WIfi, if so how?

  • Though perhaps not ideal, I've been controlling my laptop on the Eddie from my desktop by using RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol).  To do this, you may have to have Windows Professional on your laptop.

    The only thing is that your wifi should be fairly fast especially if you have graphics and such displaying.  Otherwise it will slow down your MRDS processes.
