If you need serial over network capabilities on the Windows OS another option is the application named FlexiHub.
Here is an overview of how to use this serial over network tool:
You now need to download and install FlexiHub on another machine that is on the same network as the first computer. Start FlexiHub and login using the same login and password.
On the second computer, go to FlexiHub, locate the device you want to access and click Connect.
You now have serial over network communication as your serial device is connected to a remote machine that can access and manage it as though it were connected to locally. Using the free version of FlexiHub only lets you share your local devices with other users. You need to have the FlexiHub connections in your account to connect to remote devices.
