Users that have owned devices that use the RS232 know how challenging it could be to merely connect these devices to a PC. It usually requires connection with a serial cable and complex configurations that include parameters such as the baud rate, data and stop bits. If these parameters are not accurate, the computer will be unable to communicate with the device. But with this program, the procedure of connecting to serial communication terminals becomes easy. The program gives the user various configuration options such as choosing the COM port, parity, flow control, baud rate, data and stop bits.
After the connection is launched, the program displays an empty window which is similar to an Instant Messenger application interface. The contrast is that, instead of sending chat messages, you will be sending commands to the connected device. The features of the program include functions that keeps the history of commands typed into the application, auto-completion of commands typed, resizable application window and option to keep the window on top of other applications, color code for transmitted and received data, forwarding of messages between two RS232 ports, and auto-closing of the COM port when the program is idle.
This program is a valuable tool for connecting devices with RS232 ports.
