I have had good luck with "Wifi Scope". It is donationware from Main Sequence
It will translate ascom mount driver data to a UDP address that can be accessed over wifi or ethernet. I just use an old notebook PC in ad hoc mode and can drive the mount from Stellarium AND Sky Safari on my iPhone AND PHD dithering server simulanteously. No special hardware needed but a Windows PC with wifi. I made a battery/laptop power connector and can go 6+ hours in the field.

Look up the scoop on TSP's web site and you'll get the gist.

The website itself is something else...I'd never heard of too many people at a star party prior to reading their registration rules..
