At a glance
Serial Port for Remote Desktop is an application which allows you to redirect local COM ports to remote desktop session. With the help of this program any serial application running on the remote server can access your local serial devices just like if they are plugged into COM port of remote server. And it works with any device.
How does it work?
Serial Port for Remote Desktop consists of two parts, Workstation and Server.
What you need is to install the Workstation part on your local computer and the Server part on the remote side (remote desktop server, VDI, distant computer or cloud instance). The program creates a virtual serial port on the remote side and the OS takes it as if it were a real hardware attached directly to the remote machine. All you need to do is simply login to your remote desktop session and you'll see your COM ports.
Works with any serial devices
Virtual serial ports fully emulate behaviour of hardware COM ports. All the data and signals are translated to the local hardware serial port and vise versa. As a result, any third-party application in the remote desktop session can open virtual COM ports and communicate with legacy serial devices such as serial printers, scanners, card readers, etc.
Remote desktop protocols in different environments
Serial Port for Remote Desktop supports Microsoft RDP, Citrix ICA, Amazon NICE DCV, VMware Blast and Teradici PCoIP protocols and will redirect your serial devices to Microsoft Azure, Remote Desktop Services, Hyper-V, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, VMware Horizon, AWS and other environments.
Windows ans Linux are supported as a local (Workstation) OS. On the remote (Server) side Windows is the only supported OS at this day.
Double hop session support
You can connect from your workstation to remote Server 1. And then initiate a connection to another Server 2 session from Server 1. The device will be accessible on Server 2 without any additional configurations.
