Serial over Ethernet software key benefits
Serial to Ethernet Connector is a solution that will easily let you share numerous RS232/RS422/RS485 serial interface devices over network, be it Ethernet LAN or Internet. When the existing serial device sends communication data, it is transmitted over Ethernet to the controlling software and vice versa.
Share serial port for incoming connections (Server)Server connection will be waiting for incoming client connections and actually will share local real or virtual serial port over Ethernet. Server connection provides the ability to connect many clients simultaneously without any serial over Ethernet cables and each connected client is able to transmit input/output serial data to their local real or virtual serial port while Serial to Ethernet Connector automatically joins these data streams on server. Client can be any application that can initialize outgoing connection to TCP/IP server.
Connect serial port to remote host (Client)Creating client connection will initiate local real or virtual serial port data redirection to the remote serial device server using TCP/IP protocol. Client connection not necessarily requires SEC presence at the remote side. All that you have to do is specify remote server's IP address (or network name) and TCP port to connect to. Once connection is established, all communications will go over Ethernet.
Share serial port using UDPYou can redirect input/output data from local real or virtual serial port using UDP/IP as a transport protocol. This type of connection does not require SEC presence at the remote side as well. Besides, in this way you can broadcast all serial data over your local network.
Serial to Ethernet Connector lets you select data transmission protocol, which will be used for connection: RAW data transmission algorithm or Telnet (RFC 2217) protocol.
Serial to Ethernet Connector for Linux OS is availableSerial to Ethernet Connector is also available for Linux OS! Now you can choose whether Linux or Windows OS will be a client or a server; broadcasting over UDP is possible too. Note, that Linux version is a command-line product at the moment.
Linux version for ARM-based devices is available. Now you can share serial ports on ARM devices or connect to remote devices. Note: you need D-Bus to be installed on your device to use this version.

Frequently asked questions about
Serial over Ethernet software
In this way devices using diverse serial protocols can successfully communicate over the network.
50, 75, 150, 300, 600, 1200, 2400, 4800, 9600, 19200, 38400, 57600 and 115200 bps. The start, stop, and parity bits are not relevant in determining the effective transmission rate of a serial connection.
Serial to Ethernet Connector fully supports data transfer speeds through the virtual ports it creates of up to 256000 bps.
In addition to using Serial to Ethernet Connector, there are native methods available on most modern distributions that allow you to set up a free virtual serial port over Ethernet.
