Serial to Ethernet Connector is an advanced software solution developed to share serial port devices over TCP/IP network. Thus, any serial port device connected to COM port at local PC could be accessed from anywhere in the world via internet, for example. When the attached serial port device sends communication data it will be actually transmitted over TCP/IP network. Such behavior is achieved due to the use of virtual serial port technology which emulates standard COM ports. In that case Windows OS treats virtual serial ports in the same way as real ones therefore you are no longer limited to just two real ports (any number of physical ports you have) per system and may create COM port connections without occupying any real serial port. Formerly known as VSPD.Net, Serial to Ethernet Connector has a completely new interface and greatly revamped engine. It allows you to use three different types to connect to remote computer. The first type is port-to-port connection, which lets you connect two computers through TCP/IP network. In this way you can emulate virtual null-modem cable connection. Serial to Ethernet Connector allows you to customize remote serial port settings locally or dynamically fetch these settings from the remote end. Second type is the port-to-TCP client, which allows you to connect to remote server and send/receive communication serial data over TCP/IP network. 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. The last type is the port-to-TCP server which allows you establish multiple connections to local serial port device and redistribute COM port device data all over the world. Server listens to all incoming connections at the defined TCP port and redirects input/output serial data to TCP/IP network. Serial to Ethernet Connector can be easily configured for current demands.
The start up sequence of the service is changed (now it depends on Plug and Play); Dynamically change communication port parameters; Map your real serial port to any other virtual or real port (up to 255); Fully compatible with Windows 98SE/Me/NT4/2000/XP/2003/64-bit XP/64-bit 2003; Works under virtual machine
