anyremote - control PC with Bluetooth cell phone


anyremote [-f file] [-s connect string] [-b baudrate] [-log] [-n] [-a] [-fe port] [-http]
anyremote -h|-v


The overall goal of this project is to provide remote control service on Linux through Bluetooth, InfraRed, Wi-Fi or just TCP/IP connection.

anyRemote supports wide range of modern cell phones like Nokia, SonyEricsson, Motorola and others.

It was developed as thin "communication" layer between Bluetooth (IR, Wi-Fi)-capabled phone and Linux, and in theory could be configured to manage almost any software.

anyRemote is console application, but in addition there are GUI front-ends for Gnome and KDE.
