Serial To TCP

Serial To TCP

(OP)
Hello,

     Sorry, bit of a TCP noob here.

     I have been presented with Serial To TCP connector that I now have to copy a binary file over.  Our hardware guy says it is the same as serial.  Thus my issue.  I can login, telnet and all is fine.  How do I copy a binary file from local to remote?  I assume I need to prepare the remote for the file transfer ( name of file, size, type ), and then stream the data over.  When it is finished send an EOF.  How do I achieve this when I am at this low level?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

RE: Serial To TCP

Could you send a link to the exact model of Serial converter you are using for better understanding?  Or at least post the make and model of it?

Using the WIZnet Serial-to-Ethernet Gateway - WIZ110SR to create the bridge and then there are a plethera of sat modems on the other side ( running linux ).

RE: Serial To TCP

How are you using this?  Through a switch over the local network, directly connected from the WIZ to the computer receiving?

I had a serial to bluetooth converter which allowed me to create virtual Com ports on the receiving machine.  Did this come with any software for send/receive?  What is the reason for going to Ethernet as opposed to a straight serial cable?  What is this for?

It is a custom connection between a mobile device and a sat modem.  Serial is working and is fine for everything other than transferring of binary files.

RE: Serial To TCP

Ok question, how are you aware that the serial is set up correctly?  Assuming you had a laptop onsite and connected it up w/ a serial cable and it was able to transfer files it was deemed ok.

Does the S-E converter require a special pinout?  Maybe a Null Modem converter to go with?  My Bluetooth one needed one.  Has this setup worked before or is it a new installation?

Here is the manual: http://www.saelig.com/supplier/wiznet/wiz110srusermanualv20.pdf

It shows it with a CD that has a program for setting up and to assist in data transfer.  Might be a good read if you lost the manual or didnt have it.
