Network Serial Port Kit is software for sharing serial ports over a local network or the Internet. When you share a physical serial port, it becomes accessible for other computers over network. Thus you can easily connect to remote serial device from anywhere.
How it works
When the program shares a COM port on the remote computer, the shared port becomes accessible over a network for other computers with Network Serial Port Kit installed. On the local computer a virtual serial port is created. The virtual port is bound to the specified physical port over a local network or the Internet.
As soon as communications software on the local machine opens the virtual port, the connection between physical and virtual serial ports is established. All the data and signals written to the virtual port are transferred to the remote physical COM port and vice versa. Local applications accept data transferring as if the remote device were plugged into COM port on the local computer.
There won't be any problem working remotely with serial devices that are not physically accessible: GPS- receivers, barcode scanners, modems, sensors, PBX, laboratory equipment and more. You won't see a difference because remote serial devices will function as local ones.
Virtual Null-Modem Cable over Network
Network Serial Port Kit is also designed to create virtual null-modem cables over a network. This is how two communications applications are connected over LAN or the Internet. The connection between two remote virtual serial ports is established by emulating virtual null-modem cable. Thus data written to a local virtual serial port are easily transfered to a remote virtual port and vice versa.
