Topic: "Need" Ethernet proxy (Read 987 times) previous topic - next topic


There are several "proxies" out there, including the "Serial Proxy" at the bottom of the arduino Software page, that are really bridges. They monitor a serial port and a TCP port and whatever they read on one they send to the other.

I want something slightly different: a device driver that looks like a serial port, but rather than connecting to a piece of hardware is a proxy for a telnet session. Opening the port will initiate the session. Closing it will end the session. Need some sort of stty interface to set the remote IP:PORT on *nix. Something equivalent for Windows.

"Why do you want this?", you ask. I've got one of lady ada's ethernet shields. This shield looks like a serial port to the arduino, including DTR. By connecting the XPORT DTR to arduino RESET, I think I can remotely upload programs to the arduino.


Lantronix has a virtual serial port driver on their website.

Thanks! I'll try it later tonight. Their stuff is windows only, but their site turned up the right thing for me to look for: RFC2217.
