I have a scenario where I demonstrated to my group @ work how to share a very expensive USB patient simulator plugged into a Raspberry Pi (Debian) using
socat. The group wants to be able to have an on-demand, bi-directional connection to the serial device over Ethernet. Presently I have the device broadcasting via Telnet.
socat tcp-l:23,reuseaddr,fork,crlf file:/dev/ttyUSB0,echo=0,b115200,raw,crnl,icanon=1
I need to setup the consumer side whereby a Windows user connects to the Telnet port, but redirects the I/O to an available COM port on their machine. I was thinking Cygwin &
socat on the Windows side, but I'm not a very skilled Windows guy.
