Using RoboCORE over LAN

My RoboCORE arrived today and I got Ralph built. All is well except that my rural internet connect is slothful and controlling Ralph most of the time is an exercise in futility. Is there a way to control via LAN? I backed at the $299 level with Raspberry PI 2 if that makes an difference.

Communication via (W)LAN is possible, although this way you cannot use many great RoboCORE Cloud features (like customizable User Interface, telepresence features, robot sharing, etc). To use local communication you sholud connect via telnet to address shown on Android device (Local Serial), then you can read/write data using: platform.LocalSerial (docs).
