Serial over Network Connector

Serial to Ethernet Connector is a popular Serial over LAN application with an easy-to-use interface. This serial over network application allows you to use up to 500 serial devices over network at a time. This way you can work with a device connected to a serial port from any remote location. There are three types of connections available: share COM port for incoming connections (on server machine), connect to shared COM port over network (on client machines), and exchange data between serial ports over UDP connection. You can easily access COM ports RS232 over TCP/IP, LAN, Wi-Fi, WLAN, etc.

Common problem

Let’s assume that a device is connected to a computer. The data from this device has to be sent to and to be processed by some programs on several other computers. All programs have to be able to receive the data from this device in real time.

How Serial to Ethernet Connector solves it

Serial over IP Connector allows you to create a server connection on a real COM port and client connections on remote computers' virtual COM ports. This way your device connected to a real COM port will easily exchange data with multiple remote machines.

The advantages of Serial over LAN Connector

Share serial devices over IP network

Our serial over network solution allows accessing and working with serial devices connected to remote computers. Applications accessing these devices won't see any difference and will work with remote devices as if they were plugged in local machine.

Versatile configuration options

Modify communication parameters without reopening ports, ports are automatically configured upon each system boot, upon error Serial to Ethernet Connector can try to reestablish connection at set interval, customize connection settings for serial port (baud rate, parity, data bits, stop bits, and flow control).

High compability

Serial to Ethernet Connector works perfectly on Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/2008/7/8/Server 2012 (including 64-bit editions). Various virtual machines are supported, e.g. VMware, VMware ESX, Microsoft Hyper-V, etc.). Serial to Ethernet Connector also supports hyper-threading, multi-processor systems, and RFC 2217 extensions of Telnet.
