Serial port over IP Network - access RS232 over TCP/IP
When we talk about IP networking, some might think we only talk about the Internet. True, IP stands for Internet Protocol, but any network can utilize this protocol to transfer data between computers. Thus local area networks (LAN) and enterprise networks fall into this category too. In an IP network all nodes need to be configured with the TCP/IP suite.
This protocol allows sending and receiving data in a number of ways, and this includes accessing remote ports in the network – see below.
How to access remote serial port over IP
We often come across situations when we need to use serial devices, which we cannot access physically, they could be located at a long distance from us or it’s just not feasible to connect to it. Take a look at this article if you want to know more about serial over IP technology.
