anyremote2html(1) web interface for anyRemote acting as HTTP server


anyremote2html -w web-port -a anyRemote-port [-i directory-with-icons] [-s 16|32|64] [-r refresh rate] [--width integer] [-d]


The overall goal of this project is to provide remote control service on Linux through Bluetooth, InfraRed, Wi-Fi or just TCP/IP connection.

anyRemote supports a wide range of modern cell phones like Nokia, SonyEricsson, Motorola and others.

It was developed as a thin "communication" layer between Bluetooth (IR, Wi-Fi)-capabled phones and Linux, and in theory it could be configured to manage almost any software.

anyRemote is a console application, but in addition there are GUI front-ends for Gnome and KDE and this web front-end.

With the help of this interface any device which contains a web browser and which can connect to the PC with anyRemote by TCP/IP (GPRS, Wi-Fi, ...) could be used as a remote control.


Run anyremote/kanyremote with "-s socket:<port>" option:
anyremote -s socket:5000 -f <cfg. file>

Run anyremote2html -a <anyremote port> -w <http port> -s 16|32|64 -i <directory with icons>
For example:
anyremote2html -a 5000 -w 5050 -s 64 -i /usr/share/pixmaps/anyRemote2html

Run browser on device and connect to http://<ip.of.PC>:5050

For easier use and configuration of anyRemote as well as anyRemote2html, use either kAnyRemote or gAnyRemote.
Further information is shipped with the anyRemote package.
