RS-232 <=> WLAN setup
I'm looking into buying a RS-232 <=> WLAN/IEEE 802.11b board for a specific hardware set-up I have. The vendor is supplying a virtual COM driver for Windows, which essential is ensuring that traffic to and from a given destination IP (TCP or UDP) is passed to the virtual COM port.
I have tried to find a similar driver or solution to use on linux (no specific distribution) but I can't seem to find one.
Perhaps it could be done in the code itself so the user can specify an IP-address rather than a serial port, then the need for a driver would be gone for both windows and linux. (No programming language has been chosen yet, but it's likely to be C/C++)
If you have any idea to do either of these things, I'd appreciate it.
