Great product, simple to set up
This is quite a "Swiss Army Knife" of a product that can be used for all sorts of applications that involve connecting a serial (RS232) device to a network. I have used them as "reverse telnet servers" to put old bar code printers far away from the Linux server that drives them. I just configure the printer as a JetDirect raw device and it works. I'm sure it's even easier to use in Windows but I haven't had occasion to try it. In the old days, we used to get a pair of short-haul modems to do this sort of thing, but this is far easier--no serial port required on the computer, and you can manage the device with a web interface or even telnet. If you do have a short-haul modem application, I gather you can even configure a pair of devices to automatically connect to each other.
