What is “Serial Tunneling”?

Posted on   •  Updated on

 

Serial tunneling works by pairing two Sealevel Ethernet Serial Servers (located on the same subnet) together by configuring each others’ IP address. When one serial server receives serial data, it converts the data to network packets and transmits it to the other serial server. The receiving serial server strips the network information, converts it back to serial data and then transmits it to the receiving serial device. Other than the initial configuration, no computer is required for the devices to communicate and bidirectional communications is fully supported.
