Introduction

Communication Modes

ES1A Ethernet to RS-232 converters allow you to connect serial devices over a LAN or WAN. Serial devices no longer are limited to a physical connection to the PC COM port. They can be installed anywhere on the LAN using TCP/IP or UDP/IP communications. This allows traditional Windows PC software access to serial devices anywhere on the LAN/WAN network.

Direct IP

Direct IP Mode allows applications using TCP/IP or UDP/IP socket programs to communicate with the asynchronous serial ports on the serial server. In this mode the ES1A is configured as a TCP or UDP server. The socket program running on the PC establishes a communication connection. The data is sent directly to and from the serial port on the server.

TCP Server Mode allows network devices to initiate a TCP connection to the serial device connected to the serial port on the ES1A. This is also referred to as reverse telnet.

UDP Server Mode allows network devices to initiate a UDP connection to the serial device attached to the serial port of the ES1A. When using UDP protocol the ES1A can be configured to broadcast data to and receive data from multiple IP addresses.

Virtual COM Port

Virtual COM Port mode (also called RealPort, or com port redirection) allows you to map a COM port on your PC to the serial port on your ES1A. Using the RealPort software (included with the ES1A) you create virtual COM ports on your PC. When your application sends data to this port, RealPort redirects the data across the network to serial device connected to the ES1A serial port. The network is transparent to the user application and the serial device connected to the ES1A.

Paired Mode

 

Paired Mode (also called Serial Tunnelingor Serial Bridgemode) allows

 

serial devices connected to two ES1A converters to communicate across a

 

network. The two ES1A converters automatically connect to each other.

 

In Paired Mode the heartbeat feature ensures reliable communications by

 

restoring the connection if communications are temporarily lost at either end

 

due to loss of power or Ethernet connection.

Introduction

Other Communications Modes

ES1A Converters also feature the following communications profiles:

Modem Emulation Mode allows you to configure the serial port to operate as if it is a modem. For legacy applications where a serial device is set up to communicate through a modem, the serial device can now be connected to the ES1A and communication occurs over the network. The ES1A emulates modem responses to and from the serial device.

In Console Management Mode the ES1A can be configured for connection to the management port typically found on network devices such as routers, switches and servers. This allows remote management of the network device. Communication can be accomplished using telnet to a specific port in the converter.

Custom Mode allows you to custom configure the ES1A serial port and is used if your application does not fit into any other predefined modes.

Configuring the IP Address

Chapter 4: Configuring the IP Address

Before you can begin the configuration of your ES1A you must know its IP address to access it with a web browser. Once you have access to the Configuration and Management Interface via a web browser you can reset the IP address using static IP addressing, if necessary.

Your ES1A comes from the factory configured to obtain an IP address dynamically, or failing that, to generate its own IP address using the APIPA protocol. You can determine the current IP address using the discovery software included on the CD with your ES1A

Using the Discovery Software

1.Connect the ES1A to your network (with PoE supply installed and operating). When it starts it will obtain an IP address.

2.To determine the initial IP address of your ES1A, start the finder.exe utility included on the included CD.

Figure 5. Discovery Utility Dialog

3.The finder.exe utility scans the network for devices and then lists each device’s IP Address,MAC Address,Name andProduct ID. Identify your ES1A by its MAC address (printed on a label on the ES1A).

RealPort

Select RealPort to implement the use of virtual COM ports. This allows you to map a COM port on a PC to the serial port on your ES1A. Using RealPort software (included with the ES1A) you create a virtual COM port on the PC. When your application sends data to this port, RealPort redirects the data across the network to the ES1A. The ES1A passes the data to the serial device connected to its serial port. The network is transparent to the user application and the serial device connected to the ES1A.

For information on how to use RealPort to create virtual COM ports on your PC see Chapter 8

Console Management

In Console Management the ES1A can be configured for connection to the management port typically found on network devices such as routers, switches and servers. This allows remote management of the network device. Communication can be accomplished using telnet to a specific port in the converter.

Using RealPort

Chapter 8: Using RealPort

RealPort is a COM port redirector program that allows you to add and remove virtual COM ports on your PC and update the RealPort software.

Virtual COM ports allow you to set up a connection between your PC and the device connected to the serial port on your ES1A via an Ethernet network connection using TCP/IP. If you will be using virtual COM ports (configuring your serial port with the RealPort profile) you must use RealPort to configure those ports on your PC. Once you have configured a new virtual COM (VCOM) port using RealPort, application software can communicate through that COM port as if it is located within the PC.

There are three steps to setting up a virtual COM port with RealPort.

1.Configure the ES1A with an IP address

2.Configure the ES1A serial port for RealPort (VCOM) mode

3.Configure the port itself using RealPort
