Nice box, does what it is supposed to do

does what it needs to do, however the manual sucks, there is no explanation at all of the possible options. Just a getting started manual is just not enough.

Hi Fantic, Thanks for your feedback. Sorry to hear the manual included with the NETRS232 didn’t provide all the info you were looking for - we do have a lengthier manual available under the support tab on the product page that you may find more valuable. Also, if you still need clarification, our Technical Support team would be glad to help.

Does What It Is Supposed to I Think...

I have been testing this device in a lab scenario. I agree with the other review that the manual is a joke. It tells you how to mount the device to a rack and install the software, but nothing about what features the NETRS232 offers or what the settings/configurations do. This device has some cool features, but features that will go unused due to the lack of supporting documentation. The manual available under the support tab is the same useless manual. This is typically not an issue due to all the supporting documentation that can be found on the web, however all links I have found for this device direct me back to the original manual. Besides the manual I am having an issue when trying to gain access to a Cisco Catalyst switch. I can access the switch remotely, however the server is sending extra commands that are messing with communications. For example, ever time I enter a command it repeats the line. I can't even do a full show run, it cuts the output off after the first page due to it sending extra messages... I have tried to correct said issue via trial and error due to the lack of manual/online supporting documentation.

Dear JoSkBe, Thank you for reviewing our NETRS232 Serial to IP Ethernet Device Server. We also appreciate your feedback regarding our manual; we are frequently trying to update and improve our documentation, and feedback such as this is very helpful. It seems your Cisco switch is configured in a manner so that messages are displayed on the console as soon as they are produced, often appearing in the middle of command input and output. Please try entering the “logging synchronous” global configuration command on your switch, as this will alter the display of these messages to the console. When this command is enabled, messages will only appear after you press Return. We're always here to help with our free lifetime technical support. If this didn't resolve your issue please feel free to contact us any time and be sure to reference case # 303-264607. You can also respond here and we will be sure to follow up!
