Access RS-232 over Ethernet
RS-232 to Ethernet Connector
Looking for a way to enable hassle-free sharing of up to 500 serial port devices for any type of network? Try RS232 over Ethernet Connector — a revolutionary software that allows you to share multiple RS-232 devices over TCP/IP network. The number of serial ports is not restricting as the software allows multiple serial ports gaining access. RS-232 to Ethernet Connector allows the serial port device connected to the local computer/device to be accessed even from a remote location (worldwide), as it was accessed locally.
Share RS232 port over Network
The integrated RS-232 port device transfers info packages through TCP/IP network and then returns them from the network to your serial port device. This is possible through utilization of serial port technology which imitates and, in this case, takes to the next level regular COM ports.
Sharing serial port devices for inbound connectionsThe server expects to handle inbound connections and then will share natural or virtual RS232 port devices over TCP/IP network on a local level. The server presence allows multiple clients to gain access at the same time. Each of the clients gaining access also are capable of transferring input/output serial info packages to their natural or virtual serial port device (locally). Types of such clients are generally applications that boot up external connection to a TCP or IP type of server connection.
Linking serial port to a host/client from a remote locationIn this case, achieving a client host connection is going to enable local genuine or digital transmission of RS-232 port data to a server hosted on a remote location through TCP/IP types of protocols. On the plus side, is that client connection is this case doesn’t necessarily need Secure Enduser Connection to function properly. The only thing required is stating the IP address of the remote server as well entering the value of a TCP port. Provided that connection is successfully achieved, the info transmitted from the remote location will be instantly transferred to the local serial port to be handled more.
Sharing RS-232 port points through User Datagram Protocol (UDP)Another capability of serial –ethernet connectors is deflecting input/output info packages from natural or digital serial ports through User Datagram Protocol with the advantage that SEC is not needed here, as with client connection. The connector allows you to choose a type of protocol to enable the connection (Raw data algorithm or Telnet protocol). Additionally, in the same manner you can transmit all serial info over your local network.
Serial to Ethernet Connector for Linux OS is availableRS-232 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 Serial to Ethernet Connector for Linux is a command-line product at the moment.
Serial to Ethernet Connector 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.
