We have opto22 factory floor functioning at a site via connection of an RS232 cable. The application moves data back and forth perfectly if the RS232 port is an integrated port in the computer, however with hardware like that phasing out on new PC’s we’d thought we’d try an RS232/Ethernet converter. We have the connection working, however it will (seemingly) randomly drop and spend 15min attempting to reconnect before finally latching on again and working as if nothing happened.
My question is, are there settings I need to change in opto? Do I need to set up the ATC-2000 a certain way? Is this sort of thing even supported?
For those wondering this is an ACT-2000 http://gridconnect.com/rs232-ethernet-converter.html
And I have talked with their support, the device itself is functioning, it passes data without problem when tested.
Current set up for the device running opto22 facroty floor:
Win 7 professional
Opto22 runs in XP mode (virtual Machine), The drivers for the virtual com port do not function well on windows 7.
