Serial to Ethernet Connector Description
Serial to Ethernet Connector is a software tool that enables you to share and receive COM port data to and from multiple computers using a TCP/IP protocol.
The setup process does not take very long, seeing it does not offer you to download any third-party products. The interface you come across is quite simple, yet it might seem a bit cluttered, as it contains multiple text bodies, yet it just requires some getting used to.
Serial to Ethernet Connector includes comprehensive and well-drawn Help contents, which makes sure that all types of users can find their way around it, without facing any kind of difficulties.
Automatically dealing with incoming requests
This utility comes packed with three types of connections you can try, while it also supports incoming mirror connections. It is possible to set up the program to decline all the incoming requests, create the connection automatically or just let you manually decide what to do. The latter option lets you view information about the incoming connection, including type, port, TCP port (remote host) and protocol.
Creating your own types of connections
When you send a request to another machine, it is possible to create a server connection, which will allow you to receive COM port data from multiple remote computers.
The second one, the “Client connection” enables you to share the information on a local computer among other servers, while the latter uses a UDP protocol to enable you to send the COM port data to other remote computers with the same type of connection.
View logs and try the connection samples
Aside from that, this software program comes packed with two test connections, so that you can get acquainted with its capabilities faster. Logs can be brought up in a separate window while you can navigate through Serial to Ethernet Connector quicker with the help of the incorporated back and forward buttons.
Conclusion and performance
CPU and memory usage is insignificant most of the time which means that the computer’s performance is not going to be hampered. The response time is good and our tests did not reveal any freezes, errors or crashes.
To sum up, Serial to Ethernet Connector is a pretty efficient piece of software which enables you to communicate with other machines through a TCP/IP or UDP connection, and is suitable to all types of users.
