Lantronix multiport device servers are specialized devices that are independent from proprietary protocols or operating systems. Flash ROM based multiport device servers run independently on powerup and support connections using any of five protocols (TCP/IP, IPX, AppleTalk, NetBIOS/NetBEUI, LAT). They support connections between themselves as IP or DEC LAT nodes (useful for providing translation between the two protocols) and serial printers using any of the five protocols.
These multiport device servers support up to 8 host logins per port to TCP/IP or LAT hosts, handle full modem controls on 8-pin RJ45 serial connectors and provide various connecting and disconnecting options based upon characters or modem control signals. One product, the ETS4P, actually has parallel ports for printer connections.
Lantronix ETS multiport device servers are ideal for a variety of applications. As console servers, ETS products allow network managers to access any attached device's console port via the network for remote configuration. In Point-of-Sale applications, multiport device servers can connect multiple data entry terminals, bar code readers, scanners and printers to the network for network-based programming and inventory tracking.
