Lantronix XPort Direct Driver
Lantronix make some awesome little chips which give you a serial connection to a TCP/IP connection that is by sending "C" followed by an IP. The Lantronix XPD XPort Direct Plus Embedded Device Server is available on XPort Direct is an “embedded device gateway” that provides fast, simple, reliable and affordable (under $20 in quantity) basic network.

Lantronix XPort Direct Driver
Click Apply Settings in the left navigation menu to ensure your settings are stored to the module.
Close Lantronix XPort Direct web browser, then power cycle your controller to ensure the device is now using the entered Static IP address. You may use Base Station to discover the device if needed. Remote Access and Port Forwarding Remote Access By remote access, we mean the ability to access this module and control its relays from anywhere in the world.
The only thing required to do this, outside of internet access, is Port Forwarding on your router. We have made remote access simple by giving you a gateway to get the External Lantronix XPort Direct Address and port number of the device. In your favorite browser simply enter link.
You can either use this information using Base Station or you can use it with your own custom application it is suggested that you Lantronix XPort Direct this every time you connect to the board for a custom application because most External IP Addresses rotate as a security precaution. Any attempt at remote access while still on the same network as the device you are trying to control will cause a communication error and will not be possible.

Instead use LAN Communications. Advanced Remote Access If you have multiple network devices Lantronix XPort Direct the same network then you will be required to change the TCP Listening Socket of them in order to have differentiated Remote Ports. Without doing this all of your network Lantronix XPort Direct will report the same Remote Port to link. Your router, on the other hand, can only forward Port to one device at any given time.
If different Lantronix XPort Direct are assigned to each device using Base Station then link. Port Forwarding Port Forwarding is a protocol used by your router to allow incoming requests for connections to get through it to a specific device on a specific port.

Here is an example of how it works. In this example your router has been setup to forward incoming requests for port to the device at the IP Address This means that any Lantronix XPort Direct any device tries to access this Port on your External IP Address External IP Address are how everyone outside of your network can locate your network, check ipchicken.
If this Port Forwarding rule was not in Lantronix XPort Direct and a request came in one port then the router would not know which device it was supposed to forward this to on its own network. In this case the request for connection would be denied.
Clear Jumper There is a two pin jumper connection on the Ethernet Module that is used to set your Ethernet Module back to Factory defaults. Lantronix XPort Direct jumper must be disconnected from the board if you wish to use this module.
The next time that power is applied to the board it will be in complete factory Lantronix XPort Direct. When asked for a user name and password just press enter by default there is no user name or password for the web interface. Click the Serial Settings on the left menu navigation.
Under Port settings change the baud rate from to Then click OK below. Click Connection from left menu navigation. Under Endpoint Configuration change the Lantronix XPort Direct Port number to any Port number you would like the controller to listen on then click OK below. Click Apply Settings from the left menu navigation to ensure all settings are saved to the module.
