Sensorsoft Device Server (SDS) is software that can make serial devices (COM ports) accessible on a TCP network. With SDS you can transform a Windows machine into a multi-port terminal/console/device server.
- SDS allows a Sensorsoft device connected to computer COM port to be accessed by any network client
- It works equally well with any serial device. For this reason it makes a fine general purpose device server
- Runs as a Windows service (it works even when you're not logged-in)
- Eliminates the need to purchase device server hardware, if a Windows machine has available COM ports
- Allows user to define COM port settings, TCP port numbers, log file names and session control parameters
- SDS Setup gives an option to install a driver for USB to serial adapters based on Prolific chip.
