A very simple software that bidirectionally forwards COM (serial) communication through a TCP/IP connection.

Typical application: you want to use 2 devices (that are connected to each other using RS232 protocol), remotely. With this software you'll be able to operate them in different locations.

Act as TCP server / TCP Client.

Supports multiple clients.

    Good afternoon! WinXPproSP3 error: Application failed to initialize (0xc0000135). To exit the application, click "OK". Installation NET Framework 2.0 solved the problem.

    Looks good. I'll be able to test this on Monday once I get access to the PC that the machine is on, lol. My laptop doesn't have COM ports (lol, of course), so this app will generate an error trying to set "SelectedIndex" to a default of 0 for the list of COM ports detected (which prevented populating other sections). I also have it saving ALL settings now to the config file (thanks for the existing settings framework already setup ;) ). I may convert this to C# and post on GitHub sometime soon if you don't mind (and link to here from there). ;) Thanks.

    This is the first program that I found that do this job without changing PIN status of the port on connect! Can you just make it save the connection data to INI file and minimize it to system try at start up?
