Physical COM Port on PC - Make available to LAN?
« on: November 05, 2010, 06:22:10 pm »
Hi,

How do I make the physical COM Port on an XP PC available via TCP/IP:PORT on a LAN.

What I want to do is let a PHP script running on a Web Server (on the same LAN) make a SOCKET connection over the LAN to the XP PC's physical Serial Port in order to read the data directly from that Serial Port.

Many thanks for any help!

Take a look at com0com. I have a link here under Virtual Serial Port Drivers:
