Advanced TCP IP Data Logger is an efficient utility specially intended for your data logging needs that allows you to collect any information you want from any device or instrument in real time, as well as send or receive serial data over the Internet or LAN network.
Because it can work as a client and as a server as well, Advanced TCP IP Data Logger enables you to log multiple ports at the same time and parse, filter or format your source data the way you want.
The configuration process comes with complete tools so you can easily modify the IP settings, change the server options or include remote port numbers that meet your specifications.
Advanced TCP IP Data Logger comes with a user-friendly interface and allows you to view all the logged information, warning and error messages right from the main window. Also, the status bar shows the current state of the selected source, interface error messages and the number of processed bytes.
Moreover, the utility can work with various network interface cards (NIC), however there are specific conditions that need to be met if you want to collect information from devices over the Internet. For instance, if your PC does contain more that one network interface card, then the utility displays a list with all the found IP addresses for each network card installed in your system.
After entering the parameters and choosing the IP address you want to use, you need to establish a connection between Advanced TCP IP Data Logger and the TCP / IP port. However, if there are configured ports, then the program will open them and start logging.
You have the possibility to save all the captured data to a log file without any changes, or simply write to log files, but that depends on the parser module selected. In the first case you can view the log file with any HEX editor, while in the second case you can open the file and view the entire data with any text editor.
Hence, by using Advanced TCP IP Data Logger you can log multiple TCP / IP or UDP ports at the same time, define simple rules according to your preferences, then quickly collect network data from any device or instrument in real time.
Advanced TCP/IP Data Logger may satisfy all of your technical needs, whether you are a professional hardware or network engineer, or a college student making his first steps towards a professional career. The program allows you to collect network data from any device or instrument in real time, send and receive serial data over the Internet or your LAN.
Mold your dataflow the way you want with a built-in parser and channel it to any application, DOS- or Windows-based. If you have several terminal servers working simultaneously, do not worry – Advanced TCP/IP Data Logger can handle multiple ports at once and record the data to a hard disk or any specified location!
This is not just a standalone application that you may accidentally close and lose valuable data – Advanced TCP/IP Data Logger can work as a Windows service, which means that users may log on and off the workstation, and the program will be there recording your information, capturing every precious bit.
A typical application for Advanced TCP/IP Data Logger is to log data from one or more Terminal Servers to disk. A Terminal Server is a device that allows RS232 or RS485 serial devices to be connected directly to an Ethernet network.
Terminal Servers typically have an Ethernet connector and one or more RS232 or RS485 ports and they use the TCP/IP network protocol by sending the data that is transmitted through the RS232 or RS485 serial port to a TCP/IP port. Each Terminal Server would have its own IP address and all serial data would be sent through a specific TCP/IP port number.
Another typical application is remote access to a RS232 or RS485 controlled technology. I/O controller is an ideal device if you need remote digital I/O signalizations (ethernet input, ethernet output), remote relay control, server accessible remote inputs together with a RS-232 or RS-485 bus for a bar code reader, display, etc..
