The local position measurement system can locate the position of moving target, for example a skier, more than 300 times per second. The system consists of a hard real time program, user program and computation unit. We present here a strategy to control this program over the Internet using TCP. Now the user can start the real time program on RTLinux from a Windows machine. This also improves the performance of the system.
