Application Diagrams

TCP

Using RAW TCP Sockets

A raw TCP socket connection which can be initiated from the serial-Ethernet device or from the remote host/server. This can either be on a point to point or shared basis where a serial device can be shared amongst multiple devices. TCP sessions can be initiated either from the TCP server application or from thePerle IOLAN serial-Ethernet adapter.

diagram-tcp
 
UDP

Using Raw UDP Sockets

For use with UDP based applications, Perle IOLANs can convert serial equipment data for transport across UDP packets either on a point to point basis or shared across multiple devices.

diagram-udp
 
Console Server

Console Management

For access to remote console ports on routers, switches,etc, Perle IOLAN’s enable administrators secure access to these RS232 ports via inband Reverse Telnet / SSH or out of band with dial-up modems. Perle IOLAN models with integrated modems are available.

diagram console
 
COM/TTY

Connect Serial-based Applications with a COM/TTY Port Driver

Serial ports can be connected to network servers or workstations running Perle’s TruePort software operating as a virtual COM port. Sessions can be initiated either from the Perle IOLAN or from TruePort.

Tunneling

Serial Tunneling between two Serial Devices

Serial Tunneling enables you to establish a link across Ethernet to a serial port on another IOLAN. Both IOLAN serial ports must be configured for Serial Tunneling (typically one serial port is configured as a Tunnel Server and the other serial port as a Tunnel Client).

diagram tunneling
 
Virtual Modem

Virtual Modem

Enables the serial-Ethernet adapter to simulate a modem connection. When connected to the IOLAN and initiates a modem connection, the IOLAN starts up a TCP connection to another IOLAN serial-Ethernet adapter configured with a Virtual Modem serial port or to a host running a TCP application.
