In order to access COM ports over a network, you need to set up the serial port for remote access on the remote computer.
When you connect a serial device to the serial port of the Serial Computer (the server is the local computer where the serial device will be attached), the device will appear in the list of devices on the client machine.
A virtual port that is created will behave exactly like an actual physical port. Any device connected to the server machine will be accessible by the client as if the device was physically attached to the client.
FlexiHub simplifies the process of accessing remote ports regardless of physical distance between client and server machines.
✓ With advanced access management – FlexiHub lets you specify a serial device to lock so that it's not available for the remote access. A locked device will not show up on the devices list on the client machine.
✓ You can connect or disconnect a device remotely with no physical restrictions in terms of distance. FlexiHub has a “Keep connection active” feature which ensures that the connection stays active even if the internet connection is lost. The access remote com device will remain connected until an internet connection is restored.
✓ FlexiHub makes use of 2048-bit SSL encryption for all data transfers. You can rest assured your data is secure when using a serial port over the network.
✓ FlexiHub allows you to have one account and share it with team members, giving them access to your connections.
