Run modes

Windows COM Port Redirector

Install the COM Port Redirector and configure your serial program on one of the virtual COM ports - that’s all there is to it! Regardless of whether as a replacement for missing hardware COM ports, a solution for virtual environments like VMware, HyperV, etc., or as a simple line driver, you serial communication becomes network capable without a single line of programming. Multipoint mode and packaging options are of course also available here.

Box-to-Box

In just a few clicks you can link 2 Com-Servers to each other logically and use an operating-system neutral, transparent and if desired TLS encrypted data tunnel through the network. Serial data are sent bi-directional and as fast as possible to the respective counterpart. Automatic reconnect functions in case of connection faults/dropouts are available as are multipoint operation and packeting options for fine tuning when using serial protocols.

TCP socket server

Network programming today belongs to the standard repertoire of all programmers. Integrate your serial device simply into your own network application. Take as a TCP client control of the connection into your own hands, be contacted as a TCP server using event-driven control, or use the efficient, contactless UDP protocol. The new multipoint mode and packaging options are of course available here also.
