Access RS232 over Ethernet
RS232 to Ethernet Connector
Share RS232 devices over Ethernet
Easily share up to 500 serial port devices over the network using RS232 over Ethernet Connector. This solution enables network connections by accessing RS232 over LAN or Internet.
Share serial port for incoming connections (Server)Server will be idle and ready for incoming client connections and will share local physical or virtual RS232 ports to the Internet. The server connection enables connecting multiple clients simultaneously. The connected clients can transmit input/output serial data to local real or virtual serial ports. RS232 to Ethernet Connector joins these data streams automatically on the server. Any application that can initiate an outgoing connection to a TCP/IP server can be the client and connect the RS232 ports via Ethernet.
Connect serial port to remote host (Client)Creating a client connection initiates data redirection from local virtual or real serial ports to the server by means of the TCP/IP protocol. The presence of the software at the remote end is not necessarily required for the client connection. Simply specify the IP address or network name of the remote server and the TCP port you want to connect to. Data sent from the remote device is immediately delivered to the local serial port for further processing after the RS232 to Internet connection is established.
Share serial port using UDP
Redirection of input/output data is possible using RS232 to UDP communication from your local real or virtual serial ports. Connections of this type also do not need SEC presence at the remote end, and this method allows you use your local network to access all broadcast all serial data.
RS232 to Ethernet Connector allows to choose the transmission protocol, supporting connections using either the RAW data transmission algorithm or the Telnet (RFC 2217) protocol.
RS232 to Ethernet Connector is available for Linux OSLinux OS is now supported by Serial to Ethernet Connector! You now have a choice to employ either a Linux or Windows OS as your client or server, with an option to broadcast over UDP. At this time the Linux version is only available in a command-line version of the software.
Support for ARM-based devices is available in the Linux version. With D-bus installed on your device, you can share the ARM devices’ serial ports and connect to remote devices.
