I can now control my laptop and the Phidgets over the internet by using SimpleDesktop.
Its free software which allows me to see the screen of the remote machine and control it. Its really cool because I have a webcamera and I can see a room remotely and make the computer talk to people that enter from another computer. The Phidgets activate the relays and drive the robot.
The SimpleDesktop Server can be accessed through any web browser that has java enabled.
Cool and simple!
