  1. go with moxa n port series:



    We use a ton of them on customer sites, never get problems, easy to install.


    Basic How To:


    1. Install the NPort Administrator suite on the VM
    2. Configure the Network for the NPort device, make sure it can communicate with the VM
    3. Map the Port on the VM ( like 192,168.10.100 -> COM 3)
