    I'm trying to figure out a way to remotely trigger a few relays, (dry momentary closure) and I would like to use UDP or TCP/IP to communicate one controller to another.

    Some issues i'm having are:

    Am not real comfortable with circuit design and microcontrollers.
    I've fooled around with Rabbit products and think I could use two of their
    wireless microontrollers. I'm alright at C, not great at assembly.

    Making a power supply for the controller and a buffer circuit to energize the
    solid state relays (unless I should consider a Reed relay).

    Any thoughts would be great appreciated, especially if people think this is too ambitious a first project.

    i'm also a newbie..... bt i've worked with 89c51...... i dont knw abt wireless microcontrollers.... can u tell me any part number ????

    i'm also doing something similar to this.... i'm sending data wirelessly using FSK.... its in process this time.... will be finished in abt 2 weeks.... and to my knowledge TCP, UDP are protocols and i dont think they have to do anything with uC.... the uCs use RC5 to send data but may be i've limited knowledge
