VPortPro-client with Com Port Control by Labtam.
VPortPro makes serial (RS232) data from your PC available on TCP/IP-based networks and makes TCP/IP data available on virtual serial ports of your PC. Visit Home of VPortPro for more information.



Using VCOM-TCP Primary Client

You can start the program by clicking on the VCOM-TCP Primary Client item in the VPortPro Programs' folder (i.e., from the Start/Programs/VPortPro menu):

The VCOM-TCP Primary Client dialog box will appear on your display:

The dialog displays the available connection channels list. The Status column shows activity of each connection channel along with the COM Port number, the TCP/IP address of a serial server, the TCP/IP port number of a serial server, and the Protocol Type of a connection (RAW TCP connection or Telnet (RFC 2217) protocol).

Pressing the Close button closes the dialog and exits the program with saving settings you have made.

You can press the Save list button to write out the connection channel list to an ASCII file (e.g., to document the list or to port it).

The Advanced button lets you specify your preferences for all connection channels. (Refer to section The Advanced Box below.)

The Add button lets you specify initial parameter values for a COM port that you want to add to the connection channel list along with the other settings for the cannel. (Refer to section Adding a Connection Channel below.)

If you select a virtual COM Port, then you can Delete it from the list (and from your system), Configure it (i.e. change settings for it), or display Port monitor to watch its activity. (Refer to sections Configuring a Connection Channel and Monitoring COM Ports below.)

As soon as a new connection channel updates the connection channel list (after Add or Configure), that channel becomes active immediately. This means that VCOM-TCP Primary Client creates virtual serial ports that are available to PC applications at all times (until you Delete them from the list), even if no user is logged in. You can use the VCOM-TCP Primary Client to verify immediately that it can communicate with the serial server over the network.

After you have configured VCOM-TCP Primary Client, you should configure your target applications to use proper virtual serial ports.
