The benefits from using Serial Port Sniffer ActiveX by Eltima Software.
industry: development & services.
Seidor is highly related with SAP technologies, but some co-workers are related with technologies to give solutions and supply information to ERP Systems (on production lines, etc.).
What challenges made you search for this kind of software?
Àlvar Vaïllo Anglès: Some of the companies that had developed software for RS-232 ports some years ago had stopped their activities and closed. But their applications still need to be maintained. Serial Port Sniffer software is the best solution to continue controlling RS-232 traffic and fully manage port information.
Alex Taylor: How did get to know about Serial Port Sniffer ActiveX by Eltima Software?
Àlvar Vaïllo Anglès: Searching on some technical portal for an ActiveX Control to manage an RS-232 port information.
Alex Taylor: Did you try other products for the same task before choosing Eltima solution? Why did you prefer our product?
Àlvar Vaïllo Anglès: Simply Eltima’s Serial Port Sniffer is the most powerful solution I’ve ever tried to automatically mount a gateway between physical port and simulated port and take full control of it. Eltima’s ActiveX mounts easily a gateway between physical port and emulated serial port from an old software. I can now delete, replace, etc. information and it works really fine.
Alex Taylor: Please, describe how you are using our product now.
Àlvar Vaïllo Anglès: I’m currently using a VMWare VM with Windows XP and “USB Serial port”, and develop with Visual Basic applications for these projects. All systems work fine despite the virtualization in development environment. Production environment is real ports and non-virtualized environment and it works fine.
Alex Taylor: How did you benefit from using Serial Port Sniffer ActiveX?
Àlvar Vaïllo Anglès: Complete benefit, because it allows take full control of serial port information. It automatically mounts and dismounts the virtualized port when program is started.
