With COM Port Redirector you can:
Redirect serial ports over TCP/IP network (Server)
Server listens for incoming connections from clients and redirects local COM ports – either real or virtual – over Ethernet. Any application that can initialize outgoing connection to TCP/IP server can be a client. A single COM port can be redirected to multiple clients at the same time, and each of them can transmit data to their local serial port, while Serial to Ethernet Connector will gather all the data on the server.
Connect to serial ports remotely (Client)
Once a client connection is created, data transmitted by a local serial port is redirected to the remote server over TCP/IP protocol. You need to specify the IP address (or the network name) of a remote server and TCP port to connect to, it is not required to install COM Port Redirector on the remote server. Once your machine and a remote server are connected, your local serial port will receive all the data sent from the remote end.
Utilize UDP for data transfer
Serial port data can be redirected over UDP/IP transport protocol and broadcast over a local network. Comport redirector installation is not required at the remote end. You can choose either RAW data transmission algorithm or Telnet (RFC 2217) as a protocol for transmitting the data.
