Serial Port Redirector is software that provides access to remote serial devices via virtual serial ports over network. The program creates virtual COM ports and redirects all data and signals written to the port to the remote host with specified IP-address and TCP-port.
Serial Port Redirector serves as a client for getting access to remote serial devices. For this purpose the program creates virtual COM ports. When a virtual serial port on the local machine is being created, it is required to specify the IP-address and TCP-port of the remote side you want to establish connection with.
A Serial Device Server commonly serves as a remote side. The Serial Device Server usually has several COM-ports and to every serial port is assigned its individual TCP-port.
As soon as communications software opens local virtual COM-port, the connection with the remote side is established, and the communications application can exchange data with remote serial devices.
Support of RFC2217 (Telnet COM Port Control Option)
Serial Port Redirector uses RFC2217 (Telnet COM Port Control) protocol that allows communications software to interact with serial devices attached to Serial Device Server over network. RFC2217 is a standard client-server protocol that enables you to use any Serial Device Servers.
True COM port emulation
Serial Port Redirector fully emulates physical COM-ports. Virtual COM ports are accepted by communications software on the local computer as hardware ports.
Each license key enables simultaneous use of the specified number of serial ports.
