Serial over Ethernet
Access serial ports over Ethernet network

Serial over Ethernet software allows you to share COM ports over the network and connect to remote serial devices like they were attached directly to your local computer. The program is designed to create virtual copies of real serial ports on remote PCs. If your computer lacks a serial port or you need additional COM interfaces for communicating with all of your COM-based devices, Serial over Ethernet software will let you create as many virtual serial ports as you need.

Redirect serial ports over Ethernet

COM Port Redirector makes it simple to access remote RS232/RS422/RS485 ports wirelessly across a local network or the Internet.

On the server side: share your local serial ports

By creating a server connection, you share a local Serial port over Ethernet in such a way that it becomes available for access from multiple remote client computers. If there is not an actual serial interface in your server system, you can create a virtual serial port that will fully emulate the configuration and settings of a real COM port.

On the client side: connect to ports shared remotely

By establishing a client connection, you initiate data exchange between a real or virtual serial port of your client computer and a COM port shared on the server machine. To enable serial data transmission over a TCP/IP channel, you just need to specify the IP address of the remote host and a TCP port to connect to.

Forward serial data over UDP

Serial over Ethernet software provides the ability to select UDP/IP as a transport protocol for your network communications. In this way, attached serial port devices can send communication data over a local network.

Other noteworthy features of RS232 over Ethernet app

With RS232 over Ethernet app, you get a bunch of additional options that significantly widen your serial over IP sharing capabilities.
Serial to Ethernet Connector is an incredibly powerful software application capable of sharing any number of real and virtual serial ports over a local network and the Internet. The utility will let you work with any remote serial device like it was your local peripheral.
Serial over Ethernet software is based on an advanced SOL technology that allows forwarding COM port devices to a guest OS running on your Windows or Linux machine. With Serial to Ethernet Connector, you can easily share your local serial port and access the device plugged into this interface from your virtual machine.
Serial to Ethernet Connector lets you forward any serial port (RS232/422/485) to the network. In a couple of clicks, you can work with a COM port like with a network-attached device. You don't need any additional hardware (adapters, cables, or servers) and you don't need to make any additional settings.
The program gives you a way to create an unlimited number of virtual serial ports in case you don’t have a real COM interface in your computer or if there are not enough physical ports for all of your serial devices. Virtual serial ports will work exactly like hardware ones and fully emulate real serial port behavior and parameters.

Frequently asked questions about
Serial over Ethernet software

Serial over Ethernet Connector allows you to create and share virtual serial ports and devices connected to them on physical or virtual Windows machines. This enables users connected to the network to access locally-attached and networked serial devices from any location.
Yes, you can. Serial to Ethernet Connector fully supports use with Linux systems and provides a reliable method of accessing serial ports over Ethernet. The Linux version of the tool has the same functionality as the Windows version and can easily be downloaded to your Linux system.
Follow these steps to use Serial over Ethernet Connector.

1. Download the software to the computer with a direct connection to the device that will be shared (server) and the machines that will remotely access the peripheral (clients).

2. Start the program on the server and configure the connection settings for the device that will be shared. Click “Share” to make the device available to remote users.

3. Launch the program on a client machine and click “Connect” to access the device that was shared by the server.
What you can achieve with Serial to Ethernet Connector
    In our quality control laboratory, we use specialized instruments which communicate with computers via serial ports. To avoid constant relocation and re-calibration of the equipment, we decided to try sharing the devices over LAN. Serial to Ethernet Connector helped us do this easily. Now, if somebody needs to connect to a particular device, they can share serial over Ethernet and access it remotely via a terminal server.
