New version! - Serial to Ethernet Connector is an advanced software-based solution that allows you to share more than 255 serial port devices over network easily turning your computer into low-cost terminal server. Thus, any serial port device connected to your COM port could be accessed from anywhere in the world (via Internet or LAN) as if it is attached directly to the remote PC.
When the attached serial port device sends communication data it is actually transmitted over TCP/IP network and back from the network to your serial device.
Serial to Ethernet Connector provides the ability to create several connection types for three main purposes:
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 into network. Server connection provides an ability to connect many clients simultaneously and each connected client is able to transmit input/output serial data to local real or virtual serial port. Client can be called whatever application that can initialize outgoing connection to TCP/IP server (SEC, Telnet, etc).
Connect serial port to remote host (Client) - Creating client connection will initiate local real or virtual serial port data redirection to the remote server using TCP/IP protocol. Client connection does not require 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 data sent from remote serial port device, attached to the server, will be genuinely delivered to local serial port where it can be further processed.
Share serial port using UDP - You can redirect input/output data from local real or virtual serial port using UDP/IP underlying protocol. This type of connection does not require SEC presence at the remote side as well. Besides, you are able to broadcast all serial data to your local network.
