Serial to Ethernet Connector is an ideal serial port redirector for your virtual environment. Thanks to it you can easily work with local serial ports in a virtual session. This serial port redirector software supports Linux and Windows operating systems and is compatible with most of virtualization systems - VMWare, VMWare ESX, Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft Hyper-V, etc. All mentioned above provides you with the most convenient and effective COM port virtualization.
Common problem:
com port virtualization

When working in a virtual environment, the real COM ports are inaccessible and you desperately need a virtual machine COM port - you just found the solution here!

How Serial to Ethernet Connector solves it:
udp serial port redirector

If you were looking for a port redirector from local machine to a virtualization system - you just found it here - serial port redirector download is available from this page. The fact is that Serial to Ethernet Connector organizes serial-port data passthrough to a guest OS of a virtual machine. All needed to do for that is install this serial IP COM port redirector on a computer which port you are going to use in a guest OS. Also install Serial to Ethernet Connector on a guest OS of a virtual machine which will be accessing this real port. Then simply set up the connection parameters and feel free to work with serial device as if it was directly connected to your virtual environment.

Real-life usage of Serial to Ethernet Connector
Real-life experience: Personal Background:

Lean Parker describes how he needs to connect COM ports on a physical device to a number of virtual machines and how Serial to Ethernet Connector helps him with that.

Question: What challenges made you search for virtual pc COM port redirection software?

Lean Parker: We desperately needed to connect several COM ports on a physical device to a collection of virtual machines running on VMWare ESXi 4.1 host. We currently use your virtual serial ports product, and have had fantastic success with it. The VM's are running Windows XP SP3.

ESXi doesn't support the use of add-in serial uarts, so we were hoping to be able to use your serial to Ethernet product.

Question: Please describe how you are using Serial to Ethernet Connector now.

Lean Parker: We have 3 COM ports on a physical device that we connect to a number of virtual machines with VMWare ESXi 4.1. Your product provides us with the support of 115K serial connection, which is rather convenient.

Question: How did you benefit from using Eltima RS232 Ethernet server solution?

Lean Parker: Your product provided us with reliable connection at 115K baudrate and is more cost effective than various serial to Ethernet devices available on the market.
