I was thinking in someting that we can do over linux comand line.
I receive data from com1 (rs232) in an interverval of 15 seconds and I would like to redirect that data (binary I supose) to a ethernet ip address in my linux machine (what comes after does't matter).
Any idea guys?
You can just pipe the data to the network device, but it'll just be gibberish, unless you encapsulate it, and make it into something useful. If you don't want a commercial solution, your only other option is to write your own program to do it.
There's lots of info on socket programming for C, Perl, and probably Ruby and Python too, all of which run nicely on Linux.
