On a minimal area, the Com server Highspeed Compact offers everything required for the direct connection of a serial interface to the computer network. All protocols are included (see box / applications at the end of the product datasheets). The serial interface of the Com server can be switched between the standards RS232, RS422 and RS485. The serial and the network parameters are set via Telnet, ARP/RARP or SNMP. The configuration access via an Internet browser (web-based management) is in preparation and can be activated by means of a simple firmware update.

COM Port Redirector
The W&T COM Port Redirector for Windows 9x/NT/2000/XP also makes it possible for serial Windows programs to communicate over the network. Virtual COM ports are installed on the system which appears to the applications like standard COM ports. Communication with the terminal device is now however over the network and a Com-Server.
