And the other way round – you can provide shared access to your local device for your network computers. First of all, download
and install the software to all computers in your network (LAN/WAN or Internet), which will use the required serial port. After that access your DB9 port on remote computer, as if it was on your local PC.
With the help of installed DB9 to Ethernet Connector you will be able to:
Share serial port for incoming connections (Server)
Server connection shares local ports – virtual or real – over Ethernet. Incoming client connections can transfer data to their local port while Serial to Ethernet Connector joins these data streams on server.
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.
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.
