iSerial emulation

Post by aquarat »


If you happen to have an EKM meter attached to a remote Linux machine via a serial port and you'd like to configure the meter using EKM Dash, you can use the following command to share the serial port as if it were attached to an iSerial :

socat TCP-LISTEN:50000,fork /dev/ttyUSB0,raw,b9600,csize=2

b9600 is the baud
csize=2 means 7 data bits (socat refers to them as the character size)
