Multi-purpose Serial over Ethernet redirection software

TCP-Com lets you easily access serial devices via a TCP/IP network as if they are attached to your local computer. You can also direct serial data to/from a network with real or “Virtual” RS232 serial ports on your computer, creating as many COM ports as you need for serial communication.

Only $199 for a single PC license with free technical support
PC-Based Serial Device Server

Connect your serial devices to your PC COM or USB ports and send the data directly to Ethernet networks or IP ports.

Creates Virtual COM Ports

Send network-based data to real or virtual COM ports. Your existing serial communications software can communicate with the Virtual COM ports.

Unlimited Serial Connections

Attach many serial devices to your PC’s COM or USB ports (up to 256) and communicate with all simultaneously over TCP/IP networks.

One COM Port to Many Applications

Feed data from one COM port to multiple Virtual COM ports to be accessed by multiple Windows applications.

Build multi-purpose Serial ↔ Ethernet redirections

TCP-Com is a six-in-one Serial-Ethernet tool:

1. Share serial devices over a network

Diagram from left to right: RS232 devices such as a scale and balance sending data to a computer running TCP-Com. In this case, TCP-com runs in server mode to make those devices available on a network for client PCs.

Use TCP-Com as a PC-based serial device server (also known as a Terminal Server) to make any device accessible on a network.

Attach serial devices to your PC’s RS232 or USB ports and TCP-Com will make the data available at an IP address (and port number) on your network. Add additional USB or RS232 ports to your PC to make TCP-Com act as a multi-port Serial Device Server or Terminal Server.

2. Create virtual COM ports to receive network data

Diagram showing TCP-Com receiving data from a TCP/IP network and then sending that data to (1) an RS232 app via a virtual COM port and (2) an external RS232 device via a real COM port.

This allows you to send or receive data over a TCP/IP network using any existing COM port software.

Some software only recognizes data coming from RS232 COM ports. TCP-Com can easily create virtual COM ports and redirect Ethernet, Internet, or network data to these RS232 ports. This allows you to use any existing serial communications software to communicate over and collect data directly from your IP networks.

3. Feed RS232 COM port data to multiple PC apps or COM ports

Diagram showing TCP-Com receiving RS232 data from a physically connected device and then sending that data to two different RS232 apps in Windows via different virtual COM ports.

Use TCP-Com as a virtual splitter cable.

Windows does not allow multiple applications to access the same COM port. Bypass this restriction by using TCP-Com to split a single COM port into multiple Virtual COM ports (which TCP-Com creates). This allows all your existing serial communications applications to access the same data.

4. Use an IP network as a giant RS232 cable

5. Open network COM ports as local COM ports

6. Map one network port to another network port

and more…


TCP-Com has many features to allow it to easily redirect any serial connection to TCP/IP or the other way around.

Usage Scenarios

  • Use TCP-Com as a virtual Serial Device Server connecting serial devices to TCP/IP networks
  • Make TCP/IP port connections act as virtual COM ports on any Windows PC
  • Make real COM ports function as TCP/IP port connections
  • Send TCP/IP network data to virtual or real COM ports
  • Communicate over a TCP/IP network using multiple serial devices connected to a PC

Additional Features

  • Advanced error recovery features for automatic repair of broken TCP/IP connections
  • Input data from up to 256 simultaneous COM ports
  • Input or output data with up to 256 TCP/IP connections as a client or server
  • Ability to connect to multiple clients as a TCP/IP server
  • Support for both UDP/IP and TCP/IP protocols
  • Support for up to 115Kb serial communications
  • Option to install TCP-Com as a Windows service
Wondering how TCP-Com can help with your COM port and network data needs?

Easy Setup

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 your set IP address, and data from an IP port will appear at a real or virtual COM port.
