'[OT] Ethernet to serial adapter?'

Does anyone know where I can find an adapter that would allow me to hook
a peripheral with a serial interface (RS232) directly to a 10 BASE T
network?

Try this

Versalynx Corporation
8950 Carley Circle
San Diego, California 92126
tel 619-536 8023
fax 619-5368135

They have a single port RS232 to 10BASE-T

Sorry they have no home page.

       I would look at web sites and catalogs from companies that
sell networking hardware to offices and schools.  What you are
describing is called a terminal server or sometimes a print server.
People use them to set up dumb terminal clusters or to connect
mixtures of terminals and printers or plotters to an Ethernet.  They
usually have some kind of management system such as the ability to
telnet in to them and configure the port or ports to match whatever is
being supported or some may have a RS232 port on the box which
dedicated to management.  You should be able to find them from 1 to 64
or more serial ports.  These things are also known as communications
servers.

Yes, we have such a peice of kit in work recently, it has for ports on the
back for serial devices, and connects straight into the network.  Needs to
have an IP address assigned to it.  Ours are used for modems, and telnet
then assigns a tty to the port.  I'll find out more for you tomorrow, if
your still interested ?

See also Lantronix, MSS100-01 "Universal Thin Server".
http://www.lantronix.com, includes software that hooks the comm port driver
under windows and routes it over the network.

Check out
http://www.wut.de/us_58uebers.html
I think they are cheaper and as capable than the Lantronix stuff.

Still, at $300ish EACH, I'd think easier to build my own if I'm going to
use 25+ of these!

DO you need 25 BOXES, or 25 serial lines?  Prices per port for this sort of
thing tends to go down pretty fast as you go to boxes with a larger number
of ports.  Also, if you can use a "simpler" protocol than TCPIP, you may run
into cheaper boxes as well (LAT, NetBUEI, etc...)

Maybe a low cost solution could be one off the following:
The IPC chip at
http://www.beck-ipc.com/products.asp?status=0_EN_products

The TINI at
http://www.ibutton.com/TINI/index.html

Of course the products aren't ready yet and still in Beta I think.

We are cuurent using a :

Axel Office Server AX4010 Communication Server 4 serial Ports into a 10base2
hub to control 4 modems into the building.  It was about 250 UKP I beleive
but I cannot guarantee this.
