Remote Usage: COM Port Redirection for Topaz Serial Pads (-B-R)


Topaz® serial pads can be plugged into a terminal or fat-client machine, and the COM port on the client mapped via back to a COM port on the server.



Ultimately, through this mapping, a serial pad physically connected to the client is virtually plugged directly into the server's com port.



A big advantage to this approach is that there are no signature pad drivers required on the client machine, therefore allowing it to be installation-free and maintenance-free.


Serial pads can also be set up with a serial-USB converter or with the Topaz
A-ETH1-1 Serial-Ethernet Converter
in a remote environment.
