Interfacing Fieldfox to a Microcontroller

I'm building a microcontroller controlled turntable for measuring antenna radiation patterns. Phase 1 will simply be the ability to position the platform anywhere from 0 to 360 degrees. What I'd ultimately like to do is read the signal level at a single frequency with my Fieldfox spectrum analyzer. With this I can completely automate the process.

From what I've been able to determine so far is that there is software available that runs on Windows where I could pull this data off the Ethernet port. I can build a controller with an Ethernet port and include a TCP stack, but it will not be using Windows. Programming language is C. Software is not my strong suit but I can muddle along with enough guidance.

Has anyone been able to interface a Fieldfox to a non-Windows environment? Again, my needs are simple. I just want to read signal strength at a single frequency.
