i have serial devices (plotter, scientific) which are connected to a serial to Ethernet server from moxa. Does anybody know about a open transport extension to allow this kind of connection from the chooser? In Archicad I can directly choose TCP IP as the connection protocol for the serial plotter. But from other software I cannot choose the tcp ip protocol. Open transport gives me Other than the internal printer / modem port, infrared and internal modem for my PowerBook. Was there any software extension to allow what I want?

Actually MacPPP does the inverse and allows TCP IP connection over existing serial ports. I need to connect to a serial device over TCP IP by the Ethernet port or whichever port is chosen in the TCP IP control panel. It is like a virtual serial port which is very useful. 

any ideas? 

thank you

I'm not sure that any drivers like this exist for general serial use.  There is a communication toolbox tool to do it, but that's really aimed at terminal emulators and the like, and you can't just arbitrarily select it as a printer driver, alas.


You might have better luck knocking up or finding a dongle based on something like an ESP32, I'm afraid.  I'm pretty sure there are howtos out there on the Internet.
