Best Serial over IP Software - TOP 5

Serial to Ethernet Connector

Serial over IP software from Electronic Team, Inc. that has been around for over a decade. It allows you to create a number of virtual COM ports on a machine whenever the need arises. Many modern day machines may not have com ports included. Serial to Ethernet Connector overcomes this hardware limitation, allowing you to connect to multiple remote serial devices.

The only restriction to the number of virtual connections you can create is determined by your system's resources.

With Serial to Ethernet Connector, all remotely connected devices will be fully accessible and data transfer between your machine and the remotely connected device will happen as if the device is physically connected to your machine.

How to use Serial to Ethernet Connector?

In order to make use of Serial to Ethernet Connector, you must download and install the software on both the Server and the Client machines. The Server machine is the machine to which the physical device is connected. The client machines are the ones wishing to have remote access to the physical device. If you are making use of virtual machines, the software must be installed there too.

Once installation is complete, start the application on the Server. Select the "Create Server Connection" option. Provide your communication parameters. Then start up the application on the client machines. Select the client option and configure the settings accordingly.

That is all it takes. The remote device connected to the server will now be fully accessible to the client machines as if they were physically connected.

Serial to Ethernet Connector is fully compatible with 32 or 64 bit versions of Windows, from XP through to Windows 10. Serial to Ethernet Connector is also available for Windows Server 2012, and it provides RS232 over IP on Linux command line. ARM based devices can also utilize the Linux version of this software.

List of best serial over IP software

If you need to use a serial device on a computer with no COM interfaces or want to access serial devices that are located remotely, there is a Serial over IP Connector technology that should be able to resolve your connectivity issues. Serial over IP Connector is a specialized software or hardware solution for connecting remote networked devices with a COM port interface over Ethernet.

COM over IP software tools we will be looking at address the problem caused by the lack of a serial interface on your computer. These applications also allow you to share serial ports over IP and access remote devices as if they were locally attached. This facility can save you time and money as expensive peripherals can easily be shared over a network rather than being swapped back and forth to different computers. It also makes monitoring the serial devices of a complete production operation possible from a single computer, simplifying the jobs of your IT staff.


TCP/Com is a basic software solution that helps resolve a number of serial and network conversion and connectivity issues. Some of the uses of this RS232 to IP software include modifying your computer to make it a Serial Device Server, remote access and control of serial ports, and mapping between TCP/IP interfaces. It also allows you to communicate over the network with any serial applications and lets you send data received from one physical COM port to any number of serial apps. TCP/Com run on Windows systems from 98 to Win 10 on both the 32 and 64 bit flavors.



This application extends the reach of your serial communication by employing your network and makes your current network control software and all other serial applications available from any location. Serial-TCP/IP has built-in options that let you perform tasks such as pinging, logging data, and resolving IP addresses that help in analyzing your network. As with all of these software tools, those developers working with serial hardware or software products will benefit from their facility for testing and debugging. If you need to share serial devices over IP network, this program will work for you if are using Windows 8, 7, Vista, or XP (32 and 64 bits).

Advanced Virtual COM port

Advanced Virtual COM Port is another software tool that allows you to share RS232 over IP as well as creating virtual ports on your computer. Any serial application will work perfectly with the virtual interfaces as they fully emulate the functionality of hardware ports. It offers the ability for dynamic creation and removal of virtual serial ports without the need to reboot your machine. Up to 255 virtual ports can be created and monitored simultaneously with this tool. It lets you use computers with no COM ports to access serial devices with no additional hardware requirements.

Advanced Virtual COM port supports Windows 2000 - Windows 8.1 (32 and 64-bit) and Windows Server 2012 R2. It also supports Windows CE versions: CE 5.0 (x86), CE 5.0 - 6.0 (arm), Mobile 2003 SE, and Mobile 5.0 - 6.5.

Network Serial Port Kit

Another program that lets you share COM port data over IP is Network Serial Port Kit. The application makes physical serial ports available to network-attached machines and enables you to share serial interfaces locally or over the network. With this tool connecting remote serial devices is an easy task. The program also emulates physical serial ports and lets you share virtual serial ports over IP. This ensures that they interact well with your serial applications as they have the identical functionality of hardware ports. The ability to create virtual serial ports lets you use serial devices with any computer, no matter what kind of interfaces it contains.

An unlimited number of serial devices can be accessed and shared with Network Serial Port Kit which runs on the Windows OS 32- and 64-bit versions.
