The telescopes at KPNO and WIYN use various methods to integrate the control of the telescopes and instruments with the user interfaces. These methods are described, showing the evolution from FORTH based serial connections to ethernet based RPC protocols and then to the WIYN message system and the GWC protocol in use at WIYN. The integration at WIYN is highlighted, including the operation of the message routers.
