Overview

This 1-Port Serial Device Server lets you remotely access and manage an RS232 serial device over a local or wide area network (LAN/WAN), for a simple and cost-effective serial-over-IP control solution.

For more control options, the device server is compatible with the free, StarTech.com Serial Device Application Software NETRSAPP. When coupled with the NETRS232, this handy application for iOS, Android, and Chrome Browser lets you build a custom serial control interface that’s tailored to your specific application. 

Flexible power and mounting options

For installation flexibility across a variety of environments, you can power the device server using the provided 12V DC power adapter, or using the integrated 10~30V DC terminal block.

Plus, the device server is DIN rail mountable for out-of-the-way installations.

Protects your investment

To help ensure reliable performance and prevent possible damage, the serial device server offers 15KV ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) protection, so you can rest assured that the device server won’t become damaged due to externally generated ESD.

Customizable and wide compatibility

This highly-customizable device server is easy to configure to suit your application. For easy setup, Windows users can use the provided Virtual COM port software, or the versatile web-based interface.

The RS232 device server supports Telnet (an operating system independent communication protocol), so it can be integrated into mixed OS environments (Windows, Mac, Linux). Plus, it supports VCOM, TCP Server/Client, UDP, HTTP, DHCP, ICMP(PING), Static IP, and ARP protocols

(2 stars) Does What It Is Supposed to I Think...

By:
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!

(2 stars) Nice box, does what it is supposed to do

By:
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.
