Title: Connecting MyHouse
Post by: Mystyx on December 05, 2005, 01:40:48 PM
Hi, I was wondering before I buy this
software what the connection requirements
I have AHP setup on an OLD PC that is
Networked directly to my NEW PC then from
my NEW PC to the internet.
I dont have a router connected, I dont have
my OLD PC network bridged to the internet
but can use internet on it.

will this software require a direct
connection to the Internet? or bridged?
I dont wish to do this as its a security
risk for my OLD PC (stripped for speed)

The set-up you describe should work with no
special effort. If it doesn't work, let us
know and we'll help you make it work.

I'm interested in learning more about
connecting remotely to the X10 via the
phone line.  I can get on the web from my
office DSL line -- what I don't understand
is how my home computer connects to the
internet via the phone.  Thanks.

Jay T: Assuming you have a modem and an ISP
for a dial-up Internet connection, you have a
couple options for connecting. One would be
to leave your dial-up connection active all
the time. You could also set your computer to
automatically connect when trying to access
the Internet, and then use macros to start
and stop the connection to the MyHouse
Service. Finally, if your modem supports it,
you can use the auto-connection settings in
MyHouse to call your house using a special
ring sequence (you define it) that tells
MyHouse to connect to the Internet and start
the MyHouse Service for a specified period of
