Redirected com port handshake fail

Postby smurfjesse » Wed Mar 30, 2011 3:11 pm

Hello,

In our production plant, we want to replace all fat windows client by thin clients.
Now I'm testing some solutions, and I like WTware the most.
But we experience 1 problem:

Al our production machines have sensors.
These sensors are connected to the COM port of the PC.
On the PC there is a datacollection program running which measures the machine status and speed.

The sensors are not communicating via the RX/TX pins but they use the handshake pins CTS, DSR or CD.
When we redirect the COM port in WTware, the counters on the datacollection program do not react on signals from the sensors.
Sending data vi RX/TX works fine. (hyperterm connection via nullmodem cable)

When we start mstsc on the fat client, redirect the COM port in mstsc, and connect to the terminal server then the
datacollection program does react correct on the signals from the sensors.

So it seems that WTware does not interface the handshake signals to the terminal server.
Am I right or is there some setting where we can manage this problem ?

Thanks,

Jesse

WTware does not handle pin communication properly. We've already made several tries to fix it remotely without success. But we need the device to perfrom many tests. Unfortunately, every hardware I know that communicates through pins requires some kind of production plant to work.

May be if we could perfrom tests on this device by ourselves? Is it possible to send us device?

Yes,

please give us your email address.

i can send you a schedule how you can make a simple test machine. i also will send you a vbs script wich works the same as the counter on our machines.
