Parallel port powerSwitch is a TCP/IP server to control a parallel port power switch.
Parallel port powerSwitch project is a TCP/IP server to control a parallel port power switch.

pp_powerSwitch is a TCP/IP based server, which controls a power switching device through the parallel port. Besides Java, I used a bit C to handle the parallel port I/O.

I use it for controling heating, lamps, computers, coffee machine and other things (device has eight ports).

Here are some key features of "Parallel port powerSwitch":

multiple connections
user athorization
cron-like scheduled switching
reads configurations from file
configurable log output
simple port descriptions (add a short description to each port)
remote shutdown


Java >= 1.4.x (SDK for compiling the source or JRE for using the compiled package)
a switching device connected to your parallel port
