The Async2IP is a secure remote console access product that connects up to four async
remote console serial ports, across a 10/100 LAN to the serial ports of a terminal at a
central network control site. The Async2IP converts the full duplex asynchronous serial
data stream to an encrypted TCP/IP packet stream.

The Async2IP units are initially configured via secure SSL HTML “web page” interfaces.
This process allows the user to configure the LAN IP Address and the RS-232 Port speeds.
After configuration all command and data functions are accomplished inside the terminal
interface at the central site using HyperTerminal or Putty. The central site Async2IP unit(s)
function as Master device. The Master Device can connect one session at a time to an
unlimited amount of Remote Site units. Two or more Async2IP units are required to connect
the serial devices over the LAN.

The asynchronous data is sent on byte boundaries, and when asynchronous CTS flowcontrol
is honored the interconnected asynchronous ports may operate at different speeds.
The asynchronous byte format supported is 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, and no parity. Therefore
the asynchronous byte frame is 10 bits in length.

The Async2IP RS-232 serial ports are presented as a DCE device using an 8-pin RJ-45
connector for each of its asynchronous ports. The RJ-45 ports are pinned to be compatible
with popular Routers and Switches.

Using the Async2IP is similar to using legacy dialup modems. From within the terminal
window on the PC (which is connected to a Master Async2IP unit) an IP address and port
number is entered while in command mode. Upon hitting ENTER this IP address is used
to establish a secure TCP session with the desired Remote unit. When this TCP session
is successfully made the two Async2IP units are now in Data Mode working just like a
legacy modem would.

Once in Data mode all keystrokes entered in the terminal window are delivered to the
attached remote user device at the other end of the LAN link. Conversely all display data
generated by the remote user device is delivered to the terminal window in near Real

The Async2IP unit’s system firmware upgrades are accomplished via the 10/100 LAN port.
This is also accomplished via encryption and password protected. After completion of
the firmware upgrade the Async2IP will reset itself and resume normal communications.
No system software is required to be installed on the user’s network or workstations for
operation of the Async2IP.

The Async2IP is housed in a sturdy 19 inch 1U high chassis and has a 90-120 VAC power
supply. Additional power supplies of 90-240VAC or 36 to 72 Volts DC are also available.
The Async2IP has a 3-year warranty and a 24 hour turnaround on warranty repairs.
