This highly-customizable device server is easy to configure to suit your application. For easy setup, Windows users can use the provided Virtual COM port software, or the versatile web-based interface.

The RS232 device server supports Telnet (an operating system independent communication protocol), so it can be integrated into mixed OS environments (Windows, Mac, Linux). Plus, it supports VCOM, TCP Server/Client, UDP, HTTP, DHCP, ICMP(PING), Static IP, and ARP protocols

Product Reviews
StarTech.com 1 Port RS-232 Serial to IP Ethernet Device Server is rated 1.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does What It Is Supposed to I Think... I have been testing this device in a lab scenario.I agree with the other review that the manual is a joke. It tells you how to mount the device to a rack and install the software, but nothing about what features the NETRS232 offers or what the settings/configurations do. This device has some cool features, but features that will go unused due to the lack of supporting documentation. The manual available under the support tab is the same useless manual. This is typically not an issue due to all the supporting documentation that can be found on the web, however all links I have found for this device direct me back to the original manual.Besides the manual I am having an issue when trying to gain access to a Cisco Catalyst switch. I can access the switch remotely, however the server is sending extra commands that are messing with communications. For example, ever time I enter a command it repeats the line. I can't even do a full show run, it cuts the output off after the first page due to it sending extra messages...I have tried to correct said issue via trial and error due to the lack of manual/online supporting documentation.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice box, does what it is supposed to do does what it needs to do, however the manual sucks, there is no explanation at all of the possible options. Just a getting started manual is just not enough.
