For a remote monitoring application, we want to have an embedded Linux computer (call it computer "A") with eight RS232 (1200Baud - 256KBaud) and two 1Gb/100Mb ethernet ports.
The computer "A" will be connected to two different networks. We want any computer (running Linux, Windows or other OSs) on these networks be able to access over the ethernet to the serial ports on the computer A.1- Is there any utility HW/SW tools that allow multiple computers (Linux, Windows, etc.) to access multiple RS232 ports on an embedded (Linux) computer via ethernet ? 2- We want the computer A be as small as possible. Can you recommend any embedded computer with eight RS232 (1200Baud - 256KBaud) and two 1Gb/100Mb ethernet ports and capable of running Linux ?
