2. Introducing to ReMapPro
The main utility, Comport, included in the ReMapPro package makes serial (RS232) data from your PC available on TCP/IP-based networks and makes TCP/IP data available on serial ports of your PC. This makes it possible for any other computer on the same network to send and receive serial data through a remote serial port on the PC where Comport is running. You can connect to the remote serial port by connecting to a TCP/IP port. Comport can also be used to pass serial data across a corporate intranet or over the Internet. Comport allows multiple sessions to run simultaneously but each with different serial port.
Comport supports full two-way I/O for full control of serial instruments (i.e. any instrument that you can plug into the serial port (RS232, RS422 or RS485) of your PC). Typical devices include most serial devices like gages, scales and balances, sensors, micrometers, calipers, bar code scanners, densitometers, laboratory instruments, electronic balance or electronic measuring instrument, RF equipment, communication systems, etc.
