I have an RS232 device connected to a Digi PortServer on my network. I can telnet to the Digi's IP and port number to communicate with that RS232 device.

I have a Windows application that knows how to talk to the device, but it wants to connect directly to an RS232 port.

So, my question: Is there some way to set up a COM port so that when this application connects to it, it goes through the network to the Digi to communicate with the device?


Here are some options I've found. Can anyone recommend for or against any of them?

Also found a bunch of links here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COM_port_redirector

I would use the one provided by the hardware manufacturer, unless I thought there was something wrong with that one.
