- In direct IP connection, applications can communicate with IP SERIAL SERVER using TCP/IP or UDP/IP socket connection. The raw data in the IP packet will be transferred from and to IP SERIAL SERVER’ serial port.
- In the virtual COM mode, the host connects to IP SERIAL SERVER through 10/100 Ethernet. The serial device is then connected to IP SERIAL SERVER.
- Paired mode is also called serial tunneling. Two IP SERIAL SERVER are involved and they must be set to a client and server pair. The remote IP address of the client site must be the same as server’s IP address and IP address of the client site must pass server’s address filtering. Applications do not actually use virtual COM port. They use
- The Heart Beat protocol connection provides a reliable communications connection in Virtual COM Port Mode or with Paired Connection Mode. This feature restores the connection if communications are temporarily lost at either end due to loss of power or Ethernet connection.
