Serial Port for Remote Desktop
Description by the Publisher
Serial Port for Remote Desktop is a software for redirecting local serial ports to remote desktop session.
So, any serial device being plugged to a hardware COM port on the local PC is accessible in the remote Windows session as if it was plugged directly to the remote desktop side.
How it works
The software consists of two parts. The Workstation part is to be installed on the local computer where the serial device is physically plugged to local COM port.
The Server part goes to the remote side.
Serial Port for Remote Desktop creates a virtual serial port in your remote desktop session.
As result the ports can then be used by third-party applications to communicate with legacy serial devices such as serial printers, scanners, card readers.
Any third-party application in the remote desktop session can access virtual COM ports, open them and exchange data just like it does on a physical machine.
True emulation of the remote serial port
Virtual COM ports fully emulate behaviour of hardware COM ports,
so any serial communications application works with virtual COM port as if it was a hardware COM port.
Serial ports can be configured to be auto-redirected.
In such case, every time the user logins to the remote session, these COM ports will connect automatically without requiring manual intervention.
Remote desktop protocols in different environments
Serial Port for Remote Desktop supports different remote desktop protocols including Microsoft RDP, Citrix ICA, Amazon NICE DCV, VMware Blast and Teradici PCoIP.
It does not matter what environment is used (Remote Desktop Services, Hyper-V, Microsoft Azure, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, VMware Horizon, Amazon Workspaces and others).
Any compatible Client software can be used for accessing remote side. And there is no need to change firewall settings.
