Virtual Com Port Driver

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.

Create Virtual COM Ports with TCP-Com Driver Software

TCP-Com Driver software redirects Ethernet data to real or “Virtual” COM (RS232) ports. It creates Virtual COM ports that your existing COM port software can communicate with.

TCP-Com is a Six-in-One Ethernet to Virtual COM Port Driver Software:

One: Convert Ethernet to Virtual COM Port (RS232). TCP-Com allows you to send or receive data over Ethernet or any TCP/IP network using any existing COM port software. It creates a Virtual COM port that your existing software can communicate with.

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

2. Share devices over a network

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 serial 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.

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

5. Open network COM ports as local COM ports

6. Map one network port to another network port

Virtual Com Port Driver

TCP-Com creates virtual RS232 COM ports and redirects Ethernet, Internet, or network data to these ports. Easily use your existing RS232 COM port communication software to receive data from Ethernet or other IP networks.

Other Usage Scenarios for TCP-Com
TCP-Com can easily redirect any TCP/IP network data to serial RS232 or, alternatively, serial data to network (Ethernet, Internet):
  • Share Devices over a Network: Use TCP-Com software as a PC-based Serial Device Server, making any serial device accessible on a network by attaching serial devices to your PC’s RS232 or USB ports. Serial devices include scales, balances, sensors, meters, gages, PLCs and other measuring instruments.
  • Feed RS232 COM port data to multiple PC apps or COM ports: Use TCP-Com as a virtual COM port splitter cable, bypassing Windows restrictions on accessing the same COM port from multiple applications.
  • Use an IP network as a giant RS232 cable
  • Open network COM ports as local COM ports
  • Map one network port to another network port
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 10,000 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
