Serial to Ethernet Connector
Share serial port devices over TCP/IP

Serial over Network Connector allows you to share up to 255 rs232 port devices over TCP/IP network or LAN. This way any RS232 port device connected to COM port can be accessed from anywhere in the world as if it were physically connected to a local PC.

With Serial to Ethernet Connector you can turn your computer into a low-cost terminal server. Serial to Ethernet Connector enables you to select data transmission protocol to be used for connection: RAW data transmission algorithm or Telnet (RFC 2217) protocol.
Available for Linux and Windows Mobile

Eltima Port Virtualization Technology

You will be able to configure your PC to work in the following ways

Your computer works as a server

If your PC is configured as a server, it will be waiting for incoming client connections and actually will share local COM port device/virtual or real serial port over the defined network. An unlimited number of client connections can be connected simultaneously. Every client will be able to transmit input/output serial data to the shared device or port.

Your computer works as a client

If your PC is configured as a client it will initiate the connection to the server and will send data to the remote server using TCP/IP protocol. You just indicate remote server's IP address (or network name) and TCP port to connect to. Thus, all data sent from remote end, will be delivered to local serial port at once. This type of connection does not require SEC presence on the remote side.

Configure your computer to share serial port

Serial to Ethernet Connector gives you the ability to redirect input/output data from local real or virtual serial port using UDP/IP underlying protocol. In this case you will be able to broadcast all serial data to your local network. This type of connection does not require SEC presence on the remote side.
