freeremoted 0.1.4

Remote management of Linux
freeremoted is an application developed to provide remote management of Linux by means of IR-remote controls, mobile devices (mobile phones) and other sources (eg network). The object that interacts with a source of commands is called a controller. The controller is waiting for commands (pressing the button on the remote device) and sends a signal to its customers on the DBus bus.

The system consists of two parts: server and client.

The Server (daemon) tracks clicks on the buttons and controllers notify their customers of the event. The server provides its service to DBus. For each type of controller the server loads a module. So for IR-remote control (LIRC), the module is used and for mobile devices The server is expandable, i.e. you can write modules for other types of controllers. Mobile devices can connect via:

* USB or Serial cable (using devices /dev/ttySx or /dev/ttyACMx);
* Bluetooth with protocol RFCOMM (using device /dev/rfcommx);
* IR-port.

The main point is that the mobile device provides the ability to track click
events on the button.

Also available in KDE:KDE4:Community Repository.
