Hi please excuse me if this is a dumb question.
I'm making a small machine, driving 3 steppers, and the connection between the computer (linux OS) and the controller (Raspberry pi Compute Module) is meant to be serial. However I am very Used to SSH comunications, so is ssh as reliable as serial cable, excluding possible network problems? What would be the best solution to this problem.
Maybe getting the computemodule to act as a DHCP server?
The stepper drive receives a pulse train from the controller, so maybe just a cable from the raspberry pi to the signal input would be enough.
I'm using python, and my plan is to use paramiko in order to run the scripts that move the stepper drives.
