Connect serial port to remote host (Client)
Client connection allows redirecting data from a local port to the remote server over TCP/IP protocol. Once you specify the remote server’s IP address and TCP port to connect to, the connection is established and data sent from the remote end gets delivered to a local port.
Broadcast over UDP
Data from serial ports can be transported over UDP/IP protocols. Thus all your serial data can be broadcast over your local network.
The software supports Windows and Linux operating systems; the current Linux version is a command-line product.
What is DB9?
DB9 serial port is typically used for connecting peripheral devices to a computer (keyboards, mice, printers, etc.). DB9 connectors are also utilized in DB9 cable assemblies for data connectivity.
Nowadays USB, PS/2, Firewire and other modern interfaces are replacing the RS232 DB9 standard, and modern computers are rarely equipped with RS232 DE 9 ports. However, some devices still require such port to connect to a PC.
What do you do if you have to access such a device if there is no DB9 port in your system? Some apps still require an existing serial port to start work and receive data. Find a computer that has one, insert the device into it and access it over network with the help of DB9 software.
DB9 Pinout - RS232 Pinout
Below you can find the pinout of a standard male 9-pin RS232 connector (known alternatively as a DB9 connector).
A serial port that resides on your PC is usually a male port (DTE), see below. A female interface (DCE) is usually found on serial devices that can be connected to the computer’s port.
The pin numbers with signal names and the signal direction are shown in table below.
