Multi-function Serial <-> Ethernet Redirection Software
TCP/Com Terminal Server software converts your PC into a USB or Serial to Ethernet converter. Converts USB to TCP/IP.
Add a single or multi-port serial adaptor to your Windows PC, attach your existing serial (RS232) devices to your PC and use TCP-Com to send the serial device data across TCP/IP networks – Ethernet or Internet.
“Share serial devices over a network (or even the internet)”
1) Download free 30 Day evaluation version of TCP/Com to Windows PC.
Attach USB device to the USB port on your PC. Install the USB to RS232 driver software that comes with the USB device. This will create a virtual RS232 COM port. Most USB measuring devices - scales, gages, meters, analyzers, etc. – offer a USB to RS232 driver.
Select that virtual COM port in TCP/com window. Also select the baud rate, parity, data bits, stop bits and flow control options for your serial device.
Select “This PC will act as a TCP server”.
Activate TCP/Com and your USB serial device data is now available over your TCP/IP network.
Notes: All communications are fully bi-directional and real-time.
Best USB Over IP Software: TCP/Com Software is extremely simple but powerful. It can be used to solve a wide variety of device interfacing and RS232 or TCP/IP conversion problems, such as:
Share serial devices over a network (or even the internet)
Windows does not allow multiple programs to access the same COM port. Bypass this restriction by using TCP/Com to split a single COM port into multiple virtual COM ports. This allows all your serial communications programs to access the same data.
In the TCP/Com window just select the com port number and the serial communications parameters for your serial device and enter an IP address and a socket number. Then activate! It's that easy! Com port data will appear at the IP address and data from an IP port will appear at a real or virtual com port.
