I'm moving my home/office server to a new machine and operating system (OpenSolaris) which doesn't support my old Stallion EasyConnection serial ports. I am, therefore, moving all of my home automation modules away from direct serial connection to serial over Ethernet, using Lantronix Xport Direct devices.
These devices look really cool, but I am unable to find any reference to a Linux/FreeBSD/Solaris equivalent to the Windows port redirector that is supplied with them.
Does anyone know of such a thing and/or point me to any documentation on the protocol used so that I can knock something together in Perl? I'd rather work directly from Perl rather than using a "pretend" serial port - cuts out the middle-man. (The main controller is written in Perl.)
