29401WiFi on vintage hardware
- Feb 24, 2013Alex and I talked about this yesterday, and he suggested I throw it out
to the group.
I would like to come up with a hardware/software scheme to connect a
vintage computer's serial port to some sort of WiFi module which would
allow me to use SSH or Telnet over SSL to connect to a server. I've run
across several modules which do serial port to WiFi, but none of them have
the capability to do the SSH or Telnet/SSL part. It would also have to
support 802.1x (AES, EAP-TTLS, PAP). I would like to use a basic
terminal emulator (IMP, MEX, ext) on the vintage machine to talk to the
Another blue-sky idea would be to attach a serial-to-bluetooth module
to the vintage machine, pair with my Android gadget, and use some sort
of SSL tunnel on the Android to make the connection to the remote server.
Again, there are some things on Google Play that are close, but no cigar.
Suggestions? Do any of you microcontroller wizards have something on
My boss likes to tease me about my liking for old equipment. It would
be fun to show up at a meeting with an Osborne Vixen, connect to my server
and do email and lynx.
