View Full Version : [ubuntu] networking with x10 software?

May 15th, 2008, 03:15 PM
I'm thinking about doing some home automation using x10 sofware & devices.
I know absolutely nothing about networking but I have gotten Apache installed
on my Feisty computer & I can access those files from the internet but I can't run any programs except the web pages. I was just wondering if it sounds like a reasonable assumption that I should be able access & run a home automation program on my home computer from the internet. Another problem would be I would probably have to use Wine because I don't know if I'll be able to get Linux software for home automation. I tried Misterhouse for linux & was totally lost (I think its a command line program).
