Virtual COM port to UDP Redirector
VirtualCOM-UDP™ is a software based UDP/COM
Port Redirector that provides communications between
a virtual serial COM Port and any remote or local UDP
VirtualCOM-UDP allows users to connect their
existing (legacy) serial communications software programs
to local or remote IP network addresses via UDP protocol,
giving them the ability to get UDP data streams into
their existing application without costly changes.
COM-UDP™ is a great fit when in these situations:
PC’s need legacy serial based software linked from
one to the other over an IP network.
Creating a “TCP socket” between them seems to creates
issues that are hard to manage.
is a better solution, but the software cannot be re-written.
“Remote Serial Device Connection”
PC’s legacy serial based software normally receives
data device on a local serial COM port from an externally
connected device such as a bar-code reader, or handheld
GPS. The software resides on a machine that cannot be
moved, yet the serial data instrument (BC Reader, GPS
handheld, etc) needs to be relocated to a remote or
device and software have their own communication s protocol,
and do not need a full-blown TCP connection in order
to communicate. A simple protocol such as UDP is desired.
With a serial data modem setup for UDP packet data mode,
you can now send data to the host PC software, enabling
the virtual connection of the device and software. Perfect
