We present the distributed information system for support of research and educational process with remote access to informational and technical resources within the intranet/Internet networks. The authors created the software and hardware of remote access and control described herein. The system is characterized by the network integration of computer-based research equipment for the natural sciences. It provides multiple access to such resources in the networks functioning on the basis of protocol stack TCP/IP. The access to physical equipment is realized through the standard interface servers (CAMAC, GPIB), the access server of the microcontrollers i80C196KC, and the communication server, which integrates the equipment servers into uniform information system. The system is used for making research task solutions in optical spectrography, as well as for supporting educational process at the Department of Physics of Petrozavodsk State University.
