All drivers can be downloaded from Perle’s website.
“The TruePort utility from Perle provides true remote serial ports over an Ethernet LAN. It makes remote ports appear as if they are directly connected COM or TTY ports to an application,” comments Julie McDaniel, Vice President Marketing, Perle Systems. She continues, "With the addition of the Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 certification, TruePort offers the most comprehensive set of operating drivers for a COM port re-director utility in the industry.
Microsoft’s Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Certification of products is granted after passing a series of rigorous testing. Once a product is certified the company earns the right to use the highly respected Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 logo.

Perle’s TruePort is a COM port re-director driver utility that is installed on the application server. All COM port directed data sent by the application is re-directed by TruePort across the IP/Ethernet network to remote Perle Terminal Servers or I/O Device Servers which have targeted serial devices connected to them. Data and serial port signaling is transparently communicated between the application and remote device.
