Raspberry Pi accessory port and extra functions

I want to control some Bartendro Dispensers (5 in total) and I want to add a function using a step motor, I want to know if, with the router connected, I can use any ports of the Raspberry Pi? There are ports in the side of the router with the label "Accessory 1" and "Accessory 2", can I use them to make a communication with an Arduino?, or how can I add another controller device that supports the Raspberry Pi?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

We solved the problem with the ethernet port of the Raspberry. So we combined two controllers. I think maybe a crossover cable works, but I'm not sure.

To communicate with the controllers we put a switch between them.

Hi Heinrich,

I'm looking forward to do the same, can you please share your workaround?

Also, did you discovered what the Accessory ports are for and how to use them?
