Forgive me if I’m asking a question that’s been covered in the documentation. I’m in a pre-sales situation where I don’t have access to hardware to test. Also forgive my use of confusing terms, most of this is foreign technology to me.
We’re looking to install an RV50 at a remote site (LTE) with devices that are monitored via rs232/serial. The hardware and software is provided by TASC, we’re using siteVIEW 2.0.
Traditionally, we’re using a 900MHz RF network with GE MDS Orbit routers on both the monitored and the monitoring ends. They essentially extend the serial connection transparently. Unfortunately, we don’t have a reliable RF connection between the monitoring console and the remote site.
The software we’re using (siteVIEW 2.0) requires a serial port on the monitoring console (it’s a windows 7 PC).
The software vendor is telling us there should be a driver we can install on the Windows 7 PC that’ll connect to the RV50 via TCP/IP (the remote network will be routable over an IPSEC tunnel) essentially creating a virtual serial port.
I’ve been back and forth with Sierra pre-sales and I’ve reached a dead-end where they’re essentially telling me there’s no way to do what we want to do.
We’re willing to install hardware at both locations if required, again the end goal is to extend the rs232 serial connection over an IPSEC tunnel.
If anyone can point me in the right direction it’d be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
