About the program
TCP COM Bridge is a utility program that works as an RS232-TCP/IP software converter and allows to forward data from a physical or virtual COM port to an Ethernet network. Using this program, you can turn any computer into a “serial device server.” TCP COM Bridge lets you create a connection between two COM ports on two different computers, even via the Internet. This way, you can build distributed data collection systems using legacy software that supports COM ports only.
TCP COM Bridge lets you save money on buying hardware serial device servers, as a computer running the program can easily do the same task. You can connect or create up to 256 COM ports on one computer, which will simultaneously handle up to 256 RS232 devices.
•You can create connections for up to 256 physical or virtual COM ports.
•You don’t even need to have any physical COM ports on your computer.
•Other programs will not see any difference between a physical COM port and a virtual COM port created by TCP COM Bridge.
•You can transmit data using the TCP and UDP protocols both in the local network and over the Internet.
•When enabling data exchange over the Internet, TCP COM Bridge can handle dynamic IP addresses via a domain name.
•You can also create local connections on one computer.
•You can split data from one COM port into two or more streams (that is, use the program as a serial port splitter).
•TCP COM Bridge can be automatically launched as a service, create virtual COM ports, and set up network connections even before any user logs on.

The user can try out the demo version of this software product for twenty-one days. During the tryout period, the user can create only two connections on one computer, and the traffic through each connection is limited to 56 kilobytes.
