Customer currently has an S2 talking to a B100 using one of the onboard serial ports. Between the two is a fiber link (serial-fiber-serial). They need to co-opt the fiber for an Ethernet run. So can I install a EB-rack with a SNAP serial module at the other end of the new fiber Ethernet run to talk to the B100? Don't see how to set that up in PAC Project.
Short answer: you can't do what you describe in PAC Project.However... how about an E1 in place of the B100? That's super easy to configure in PAC Project as long as you have 9.5 or newer...
Except, my final run after the Ethernet is a few thousand feet of serial. I would have to talk to the E1 using Modbus or Optomux within PAC, yes?
I might need a diagram here. You're saying you currently have serial-fiber-serial and you want to take out the initial "Serial-" part and communicate out of the S2 via Ethernet rather than the serial you're using now?
