Overview
NPort 5200 Series serial device servers are designed to make your industrial serial devices Internet
ready instantly. The compact size of NPort 5200 device servers makes them the ideal choice for
connecting your RS-232 (NPort 5210/5230) or RS-422/485 (NPort 5230) serial devices—such as
PLCs, meters, and sensors—to an IP-based Ethernet LAN, making it possible for your software to
access serial devices anywhere over a local LAN or the Internet.
NPort 5200 serial device servers ensure the compatibility of network software that uses a standard
network API (Winsock or BSD Sockets) by providing TCP Server Mode, TCP Client Mode, and UDP
Mode. And thanks to NPort’s Real COM/TTY drivers, software that works with COM/TTY ports can
be set up to work over a TCP/IP network in no time. This excellent feature preserves your software
investment and lets you enjoy the benefits of networking your serial devices instantly.
NPort 5200 serial device servers support automatic IP configuration protocols (DHCP, BOOTP) and
manual configuration via NPort’s handy web browser console. Both methods ensure quick and
effective installation. And with NPort 5200’s Windows Utility, installation is very straightforward,
since all system parameters can be stored and then copied to other device servers simultaneously.

Connecting the Hardware
This section describes how to connect NPort 5210/5230 to serial devices for first time testing purposes.
We cover Wiring Requirements, Connecting the Power, Grounding NPort 5210/5230,
Connecting to the Network, and Connecting to a Serial Device.
Wiring Requirements
Safety First!
Be sure to disconnect the power cord before installing and/or wiring your NPort 5210/5230.
Wiring Caution!
Calculate the maximum possible current in each power wire and common wire. Observe all electrical
codes dictating the maximum current allowable for each wire size.
2-2
NPort 5210/5230 User’s Manual
Getting Started
If the current goes above the maximum ratings, the wiring could overheat, causing serious damage to
your equipment.
Temperature Caution!
Please take care when handling NPort 5210/5230. When plugged in, NPort 5120/5230’s internal
components generate heat, and consequently the casing may feel hot to the touch.
You should also pay attention to the following points:
Use separate paths to route wiring for power and devices. If power wiring and device wiring paths
must cross, make sure the wires are perpendicular at the intersection point.
NOTE: Do not run signal or communication wiring and power wiring in the same wire conduit.
To avoid interference, wires with different signal characteristics should be routed separately.
You can use the type of signal transmitted through a wire to determine which wires should be
kept separate. The rule of thumb is that wiring that shares similar electrical characteristics can be
bundled together.
Keep input wiring and output wiring separate.
Where necessary, it is strongly advised that you label wiring to all devices in the system.
Connecting the Power
Connect the 12-30 VDC power line with NPort 5210/5230’s terminal block. If the power is properly
supplied, the “Ready” LED will show a solid red color until the system is ready, at which time the
“Ready” LED will change to a green color.
Grounding NPort 5210/5230
Grounding and wire routing helps limit the effects of noise due to electromagnetic interference (EMI).
Run the ground connection from the ground screw to the grounding surface prior to connecting
devices.
This product is intended to be mounted to a well-grounded mounting surface such as a metal panel.
SG: The Shielded Ground (sometimes called Protected Ground) contact is the
left most contact of the 3-pin power terminal block connector when viewed
from the angle shown here. Connect the SG wire to an appropriate
grounded metal surface.

Connecting to the Network
Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to NPort 5210/5230’s 10/100M Ethernet port and the other end
of the cable to the Ethernet network. If the cable is properly connected, NPort 5210/5230 will indicate
a valid connection to the Ethernet in the following ways:
The Link LED maintains a solid green color when connected to a 100 Mbps Ethernet network.
The Link LED maintains a solid orange color when connected to a 10 Mbps Ethernet network.
The Link LED will flash when Ethernet packets are being transmitted or received.
Connecting to a Serial Device
Connect the serial data cable between NPort 5210/5230 and the serial device. Serial data cables are
optional accessories for NPort 5210. Refer to Chapter 1 under Optional Accessories for information
on the RJ45-to-DB25 and RJ45-to-DB9 cables provided by Moxa.

Chapter 3
Initial IP Address Configuration
When setting up your NPort 5210/5230 for the first time, the first thing you should do is configuring
the IP address. This chapter introduces the method to configure NPort’s IP address. Select one of the
initial IP Address configuration methods to configure NPort’s IP Address. For more details about
network settings, see the Network Settings section from Chapter 5, Web Console Configuration.
This chapter includes the following sections:
Initializing NPort’s IP Address
Factory Default IP Address
NPort Administration Suite
recommended configuration method
ARP
Telnet Console
Serial Console (19200, n, 8, 1)
Initializing NPort’s IP Address
1.
Determine whether your NPort needs to use a Static IP or Dynamic IP (either DHCP or BOOTP
application).
2.
If NPort is used in a Static IP environment, you can use NPort Administration Suite, ARP, Web
Console, Telnet Console, or Serial Console to configure the new IP address.
3.
If NPort is used in a Dynamic IP environment, you can use NPort Administration suite, Web
Console, Telnet Console, or Serial Console to configure NPort to get an IP address dynamically
with DHCP, DHCP/BOOTP, or BOOTP.
Consult your network administrator on how to reserve a fixed IP address (for your NPort) in the
MAC-IP mapping table when using a DHCP Server or BOOTP Server. In most applications, you
should assign a fixed IP address to your NPort.
Factory Default IP Address
NPort products are configured with the following default private IP address:
Default IP address:
192.168.127.254
(IP addresses of the form 192.168.xxx.xxx are referred to as private IP addresses, since it is not
possible to directly access a device configured with a private IP address from a public network. For
example, you would not be able to ping such a device from an outside Internet connection. NPort
applications that require sending data over a public network, such as the Internet, require setting up
the server with a valid public IP address, which can be leased from a local ISP.)
NPort Administration Suite
NPort Administration Suite consists of some useful utility programs that are used to configure and
manage your NPorts.
See Chapter 5 for details on how to install NPort Administration Suite, and how to use this suite
of useful utilities to set up IP addresses and configure your NPort.
ARP
You can make use of the ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) command to set up an IP address for
your NPort. The ARP command tells your computer to associate the NPort’s MAC address with the
intended IP address. You must then use Telnet to access the NPort, at which point the Device Server’s
IP address will be reconfigured.
In order to use this setup method, both your computer and NPort must be connected to the same LAN.
Or, you may use a cross-over Ethernet cable to connect the NPort directly to your computer’s Ethernet
card.
Your NPort must be configured with the factory default IP address—192.168.127.254—before
executing the ARP command, as described below.
Take the following steps to use ARP to configure the IP address:
3-2
1.
Obtain a valid IP address for your NPort from your network administrator.
2.
Obtain the NPort’s MAC address from the label on its bottom panel.
3.
Execute the ‘arp -s’ command from your computer’s MS-DOS prompt by typing:
arp –s 192.168.200.100 00-90-E8-xx-xx-xx
This is where 192.168.200.100 is the new IP address and 00-90-E8-xx-xx-xx is the MAC address
for your NPort. You will need to change both numbers, as described above in points 1 and 2.
4.
Next, execute a special Telnet command by typing:
telnet 192.168.200.100 6000
After issuing this command, a Connect failed message will
appear, as shown here. After the NPort reboots, its IP address
should be updated to the new address, and you can reconnect
using either Telnet, Web, or Administrator to check that the
update was successful.
NPort 5210/5230 User’s Manual

Choosing the Proper Operation Mode
In this section, we describe the various NPort operation modes. The options include an operation
mode that uses a driver installed on the host computer, and operation modes that rely on TCP/IP
socket programming concepts. After choosing the proper operating mode in this chapter, refer to
Chapter 5 for detailed configuration parameter definitions.
Overview
TCP Server Mode
TCP Client Mode
UDP Mode
Real COM Mode
Overview
NPort Device Servers network-enable traditional RS-232/422/485 devices, in which a Device Server
is a tiny computer equipped with a CPU, real-time OS, and TCP/IP protocols that can bi-directionally
translate data between the serial and Ethernet formats. Your computer can access, manage, and
configure remote facilities and equipment over the Internet from anywhere in the world.
Traditional SCADA and data collection systems rely on serial prots (RS-232/422/485) to collect data
from various kinds of instruments. Since NPort Serial Device Servers network-enable instruments
equipped with an RS-232/422/485 communication port, your SCADA and data collection system will
be able to access all instruments connected to a standard TCP/IP network, regardless of whether the
devices are used locally or at a remote site.
NPort is an external IP-based network device that allows you to expand the number of serial ports for
a host computer on demand. As long as your host computer supports the TCP/IP protocol, you won’t
be limited by the host computer’s bus limitation (such as ISA or PCI), or lack of drivers for various
operating systems.
In addition to providing socket access, NPort also comes with a Real COM/TTY driver that transmits
all serial signals intact. This means that your existing COM/TTY-based software can be preserved,
without needing to invest in additional software.
Three different Socket Modes are available: TCP Server, TCP Client, and UDP Server/Client. The
main difference between the TCP and UDP protocols is that TCP guarantees delivery of data by
requiring the recipient to send an acknowledgement to the sender. UDP does not require this type of
verification, making it possible to offer speedier delivery. UDP also allows multicasting of data to
groups of IP addresses.
Pictures in this Chapter will use NPort 5400 series as an example.
TCP Server Mode
In TCP Server mode, NPort provides a unique IP:Port address
on a TCP/IP network. NPort waits passively to be contacted
by the host computer, allowing the host computer to establish
a connection with and get data from the serial device. This
operation mode also supports up to 4 simultaneous
connections, so that multiple hosts can collect data from the
same serial device—at the same time.
As illustrated in the figure, data transmission proceeds as
follows:
4-2
1.
The host requests a connection from the NPort configured
for TCP Server Mode.
2.
Once the connection is established, data can be
transmitted in both directions—from the host to the
NPort, and from the NPort to the host.
NPort 5210/5230 User’s Manual
Choosing the Proper Operation Mode
TCP Client Mode
In TCP Client mode, NPort can actively establish a TCP
connection to a pre-defined host computer when serial
data arrives.
After the data has been transferred, NPort can
automatically disconnect from the host computer by
using the TCP alive check time or Inactivity time
settings. Refer to chapter 5 for more details.
As illustrated in the figure, data transmission proceeds as
follows:
1.
The NPort configured for TCP Client Mode requests
a connection from the host.
2.
Once the connection is established, data can be
transmitted in both directions—from the host to the
NPort, and from the NPort to the host.
UDP Mode
Compared to TCP communication, UDP is faster and
more efficient. In UDP mode, you can multicast data
from the serial device to multiple host computers,
and the serial device can also receive data from
multiple host computers, making this mode ideal for
message display applications.
NPort 5210/5230 User’s Manual
4-3
Real COM Mode
NPort comes equipped with COM drivers that work with
Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP systems, and also TTY
drivers for Linux systems. The driver establishes a
transparent connection between host and serial device by
mapping the IP:Port of the NPort’s serial port to a local
COM/TTY port on the host computer.
The driver used for Real COM Mode comes with the NPort Windows Administrator which will install
automatically on your computer when you install NPort Administration Suite.
The important point is that Real COM Mode allows users to continue using RS-232/422/485 serial
communications software that was written for pure serial communications applications. The driver
intercepts data sent to the host’s COM port, packs it into a TCP/IP packet, and then redirects it
through the host’s Ethernet card. At the other end of the connection, the NPort accepts the Ethernet
frame, unpacks the TCP/IP packet, and then transparently sends it to the appropriate serial device
attached to one of the NPort’s serial ports.
Real COM Mode allows several hosts to have access control of the same NPort. The Moxa driver that
comes with your NPort controls host access to attached serial devices by checking the host’s IP
address.
Modify the Accessible IP Setting table when the legal IP address should be required in your
application.

4. The NPort 5210/5230 homepage will open. On this page, you can see a brief description of the
Web Console’s nine function groups.
If you can’t remember the password, the ONLY way to start configuring NPort is to load factory
defaults by using the Reset button located near the NPort’s RJ45 Ethernet port.
Remember to use Windows Administrator to export the configuration file when you have finished the
configuration. After using the Reset button to load factory defaults, your configuration can be easily
reloaded into NPort by using the Windows Administrator Import function. Refer to Chapter 6 for
more details about using the Export and Import functions.
If your NPort application requires using password protection, you must enable the cookie function in
your browser. If the cookie function is disabled, you will not be allowed to enter the Web Console
Screen.

NPort 5210/5230 uses SNTP (RFC-1769) for auto time calibration.
Input the correct “Time Server” IP address or domain address. Once NPort is configured with the
correct Time Server address, NPort will request time information from the “Time Server” every 10
minutes.
Console
The “Disable” option for Web Console and Telnet Console is included for security reasons. In some
cases, you may want to Disable one or both of these Console utilities as an extra precaution to prevent
unauthorized users from accessing your NPort. The factory default for both Web Console and Telnet
Console is Enable.

Network Settings
You must assign a valid IP address to NPort 5210/5230 before it will work in your network
environment. Your network system administrator should provide you with an IP address and related
settings for your network. The IP address must be unique within the network (otherwise, NPort
5210/5230 will not have a valid connection to the network). First time users can refer to Chapter 3,
Initial IP Address Configuration, for more information.
You can choose from four possible IP Configuration modes—Static, DHCP, DHCP/BOOTP, and
BOOTP—located under the web console screen’s IP configuration drop-down box.

Netmask
Setting
Factory Default
Necessity
Ex. 255.255.255.0
255.255.0.0
Required
A subnet mask represents all the network hosts at one geographic location, in one building, or on the
same local area network. When a packet is sent out over the network, the NPort will use the subnet
mask to check whether the desired TCP/IP host specified in the packet is on local network segment. If
the address is on the same network segment as the NPort, a connection established directly from the
NPort. Otherwise, the connection is established through the given default gateway.
Gateway
Setting
Factory Default
Necessity
Ex. 192.168.1.1
None
Optional
A gateway is a network gateway that acts as an entrance to another network. Usually, the computers
that control traffic within the network or at the local Internet service provider are gateway nodes.
NPort needs to know the IP address of the default gateway computer in order to communicate with the
hosts outside the local network environment. For correct gateway IP address information, consult the
network administrator.

Necessity
Required
In Dynamic IP environments, the firmware will retry 3 times every 30 seconds until network settings
are assigned by the DHCP or BOOTP server. The Timeout for each try increases from 1 second, to 3
seconds, to 5 seconds.
If the DHCP/BOOTP Server is unavailable, the firmware will use the default IP address,
192.168.127.254, Netmask, and Gateway for IP settings.
DNS server 1 / DNS sever 2
Setting
Factory Default
Necessity
E.g., 192.168.1.1
None
Optional
(IP addresses of the form x.x.x.0 and
x.x.x.255 are invalid.)
When the user wants to visit a particular website, the computer asks a Domain Name System (DNS)
server for the website’s correct IP address, and the computer users the response to connect to the web
server. DNS is the way that Internet domain names are identified and translated into IP addresses. A
domain name is an alphanumeric name, such as moxa.com, that it is usually easier to remember. A
DNS server is a host that translates this kind of text-based domain name into the numeric IP address
used to establish a TCP/IP connection.
In order to use NPort’s DNS feature, you need to set the IP address of the DNS server to be able to
access the host with the domain name. NPort provides DNS server 1 and DNS server 2 configuration
items to configure the IP address of the DNS server. DNS Server 2 is included for use when DNS
sever 1 is unavailable.
NPort plays the role of DNS client. Functions that support domain name in NPort are Time Sever IP
Address, TCP Client-Destination IP Address, Mail Server, SNMP Trap IP Address, and IP
Location Server.

address where the NPort is physically located.
IP Address Report
When NPort 5000 series products are used in a dynamic IP environment, users must spend more time
with IP management tasks. For example, NPort works as a server (TCP or UDP), and the host, which
acts as a client, must know the IP address of the server. If the DHCP server assigns a new IP address
to the server, the host must take care of what happens when the IP changes.
NPort 5000 series products help out by periodically reporting their IP address to the IP location server,
in case the dynamic IP has changed. The parameters shown below are used to configure the Auto IP
report function. There are two ways to develop an “Auto IP report Server” to receive NPort’s Auto IP
report.
1. Use NPort Administrator’s IP Address Report function.
2. Refer the Appendix C for the “Auto IP report protocol” to develop your own software.

1 to 99 min: NPort automatically closes TCP connection if there is no TCP activity for the given time.
After the connection is closed, NPort starts listening for another Real COM driver’s connection from
another host.
NPort 5210/5230 User’s Manual 5-11
Max Connection
Setting
Factory Default
Necessity
1, 2, 3, 4
1
Required
Max Connection is usually used when the user needs to receive data from different hosts
simultaneously. The factory default only allows 1 connection at a same. When Max Connection is set
to 1, the Real COM driver on the specific host has the full control.
Max. Connection 1:
Allows only 1 host’s Real COM driver to open the specific NPort serial port.
Max Connection 2 to 4:
Allows 2 to 4 host’s Real COM drivers to open the specific NPort serial port, at the same time. When
multiple hosts’ Real COM drivers open the serial port at the same time, the COM driver only provides
a pure data tunnel without control ability.
Application software that is based on the COM driver will receive a driver response of “success”
when the software uses any of the Win32 API functions. The firmware will only send the data back to
the driver on the host.
Data will be sent first-in-first-out when data comes into the NPort from the Ethernet interface.
When Max Connection is not 1, it also means that NPort will be in “multi connection application”. In
the “multi connection application”, when one of two to four host close the COM port, NPort will
suspend to receive or send serial data until the host successfully close the COM port.
In multi connection application, NPort will use the serial communication parameters set in console. If
the host open COM with different parameters to NPort’s console setting, data communication may not
work properly
Delimiter 1
Setting
Factory Default
Necessity
00 to FF
None
Optional
Once the NPort receives both delimiters through its serial port, it immediately packs all data currently
in its buffer and sends it out the NPort’s Ethernet port.
Delimiter 2
Setting
Factory Default
Necessity
00 to FF
None
Optional
Once the NPort receives both delimiters through its serial port, it immediately packs all data currently
in its buffer and sends it out the NPort’s Ethernet port.
Delimiter 2 is optional. If left blank, then Delimiter 1 alone trips clearing of the buffer. If the size of
the serial data received is greater than 1K, the NPort will automatically pack the data and send it to
the Ethernet. However, to use the delimiter function, you must at least enable Delimiter 1. If Delimiter
1 is left blank and Delimiter 2 is enabled, the delimiter function will not work properly.

Web Console Configuration
Force Transmit
Setting
0 to 65535 ms
0: Disable the force transmit timeout.
Factory Default
0 ms
Necessity
Optional
1 to 65535: Forces the NPort’s TCP/IP protocol software to try to pack serial data received during the
specified time into the same data frame.
This parameter defines the time interval during which NPort fetches the serial data from it’s internal
buffer. If data is incoming through the serial port, NPort stores the data in the internal buffer. NPort
transmits data stored in the buffer via TCP/IP, but only if the internal buffer is full or if the force
transmit time interval reaches the time specified under Force Transmit timeout.
Optimal force transmit timeout differs according to your application, but it must be at least larger than
one character interval within the specified baud rate. For example, assume that the serial port is set to
1200 bps, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, and no parity. In this case, the total number of bits needed to send a
character is 10 bits, and the time required to transfer one character is
10 (bits) / 1200 (bits/s) * 1000 (ms/s) = 8.3 ms.
Therefore, you should set Force Transmit timeout to be larger than 8.3 ms. Force Transmit timeout is
specified in milliseconds and must be larger than 10 ms.
If the user wants to send the series of characters in a packet, the serial device attached to NPort should
send characters without time delay larger than Force Transmit timeout between characters and the
total length of data must be smaller than or equal to NPort’s internal buffer size. The serial
communication buffer size of NPort is 1 Kbytes per port.

Inactivity time
Setting
Factory Default
0 to 65535 ms
0 ms
0 ms: TCP connection is not closed due to an idle serial line.
Necessity
Optional
0-65535 ms: NPort automatically closes the TCP connection if there is no serial data activity for the
given time. After the connection is closed, NPort starts listening for another host’s TCP connection.
This parameter defines the maintenances status as Closed or Listen on the TCP connection. The
connection is closed if there is no incoming or outgoing data through the serial port during the specific
Inactivity time.
If the value of inactivity time is set to 0, the current TCP connection is maintained until there is
connection close request. Although inactivity time is disabled, the NPort will check the connection
status between the NPort and remote host by sending “keep alive” packets periodically. If the remote
host does not respond to the packet, it assumes that the connection was closed down unintentionally.
NPort will then force the existing TCP connection to close.
At least, the Inactivity time should be set larger than that of Force Transmit timeout. To prevent the
unintended loss of data due to the session disconnected, it is highly recommended that this value is set
large enough so that the intended data transfer is completed.
Max Connection
Setting
Factory Default
Necessity
1, 2, 3, 4
1
Required
Max Connection is usually used when the user needs to receive data from different hosts
simultaneously. The factory default only allows 1 connection at a time.
Max. Connection 1:
NPort only allows 1 host to open the TCP connection to the specific serial port.
Max Connection 2 to 4:
Allows 2 to 4 host’s TCP connection request to open the specific NPort serial port, at the same time.
When multiple hosts establish a TCP connection to the specific serial port at the same time, NPort will
duplicate the serial data and transmit to all of the hosts. Ethernet data is sent on a first-in-first-out
basis to the serial port when data comes into NPort from the Ethernet interface.

the Ethernet. However, to use the delimiter function, you must at least enable Delimiter 1. If Delimiter
1 is left blank and Delimiter 2 is enabled, the delimiter function will not work properly.

Force Transmit
Setting
0 to 65535 ms
0: Disable the force transmit timeout.
Factory Default
Necessity
0 ms
Optional
1 to 65535: Forces the NPort’s TCP/IP protocol software to try to pack serial data received during the
specified time into the same data frame.
This parameter defines the interval during which NPort fetches the serial data from its internal buffer.
If there is incoming data through the serial port, NPort stores the data in the internal buffer. NPort
transmits data stored in the buffer via TCP/IP, but only if the internal buffer is full or if the force
transmit time interval reaches the time specified as Force Transmit timeout.
Optimal force transmit timeout differs according to your application, but it must be at least as large as
one character interval within the specified baud rate. For example, assume that the serial port is set to
1200 bps, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, and no parity. In this case, the total number of bits required to send a
character is 10 bits and the time required to transfer one character is
10 (bits) / 1200 (bits/s) * 1000 (ms/s) = 8.3 ms.
Therefore, you should set the Force Transmit timeout to be larger than 8.3 ms. Force Transmit timeout
is specified in milliseconds and must be larger than 10 ms.
If the user wants to send a series of characters in a packet, the serial device attached to NPort should
send characters without time delay larger than Force Transmit timeout between characters and the
total length of data must be smaller than or equal to NPort’s internal buffer size. The serial
communication buffer size of NPort is 1 Kbyte per port.

Accessible IP Settings
NPort has an IP address based filtering method to control access to the NPort.
Accessible IP Settings allows you to add or remove “Legal” remote host IP addresses to prevent
unauthorized access. Access to NPorts is controlled by IP address. That is, if a host’s IP address is in
the accessible IP table, then the host will be allowed access to the NPort. You can allow one of the
following cases by setting the parameter.
Only one host of specific IP address can access the NPort
Enter “IP address/255.255.255.255” (e.g., “192.168.1.1/255.255.255.255”).
Hosts on the specific subnet can access the NPort
Enter “IP address/255.255.255.0” (e.g., “192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0”).
Any host can access the NPort

Auto Warning Settings
Event Type
Cold start
This refers to starting the system from power off (contrast this with warm start). When performing a
cold start, NPort will automatically issue an Auto warning message by e-mail, or send an SNMP trap
after rebooting.
Warm start
This refers to restarting the computer without turning the power off. It’s the opposite of cold start.
When performing a warm start, NPort will automatically send an e-mail, or send an SNMP trap after
rebooting.
Authentication failure
The user inputs a wrong password from the Console or Administrator. When authentication failure
occurs, NPort will immediately send an e-mail or send an SNMP trap.
IP address changed
The user has changed NPort’s IP address. When the IP address changes, NPort will send an e-mail
with the new IP address before NPort reboots. If the NPort fails to send mail to the mail server after
15 seconds, NPort will be rebooting directly and abort the mail auto warning.
Password changed
The user has changed NPort’s password. When the password changes, NPort will send an e-mail with
the password change notice before NPort reboots. If the NPort fails to send mail to the mail server
after 15 seconds, NPort will be rebooting directly and abort the mail auto warning.
DCD changed
The DCD (Data Carrier Detect) signal has changed, also indicating that the modem connection status
has changed. For example, a DCD change to high also means “Connected” between local modem and
remote modem. If the DCD signal changes to low, it also means that the connection line is down.
When the DCD changes, NPort will immediately send an e-mail or send an SNMP trap.

Overview
We understand the importance of software as the foundation of your application, and with this in mind,
we designed NPort Administrator to let you easily install and configure your NPort 5000 Series
product over the network. NPort Administrator provides five function groups that ease the installation
process, allows off-line COM mapping, and provides monitoring and IP location server functions.
NPort Administrator is an integrated software suite that bundles NPort Administrator and the IP Serial
Library, and provides everything you need to remotely manage, monitor, and modify your
NPort—hassle free.
NPort Administrator ONLY supports NPort 5000 Series products. For the NPort DE-311 or DE-211,
use NPort Management Suite, which can be downloaded from www.moxa.com.

Broadcast Search
The Broadcast Search function is used to
locate all NPorts that are connected to the
same LAN as your computer.
Since the Broadcast Search function
searches by MAC address and not IP
address, all NPorts connected to the LAN
will be located, regardless of whether or
not they are part of the same subnet as the
host.
The Broadcast Search window will open and display the Model, IP
Address, MAC Address, and Progress (of the search for that
particular device).
When the search is complete, the Broadcast
Search window closes, and the NPorts that
were located are displayed in the right pane
of the Administrator window.
For the example shown here, NPort
Administrator found 7 NPort Serial Device
Servers on the LAN. As you can see, 2 of
the 7 NPorts have password protection,
which is indicated by Lock under Status.
To configure one of the listed NPorts, place
the cursor over the row displaying that
NPort’s information, and then double click.
Before modifying an NPort’s configuration, use Broadcast Search or Specify by IP Address to
locate NPorts connected to the LAN.

COM Mapping
Windows Administration Suite comes with the Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP Real COM drivers.
After you install Windows Administration Suite, there are two ways to set up the NPort’s serial port as
your host’s remote COM port.
The first way is On-line COM Mapping. On-line COM Mapping will check to make sure the NPort
is correctly connected to the network and then install the driver on the host computer.
The second way is Off-line COM Installation, without connecting the NPort to the network first.
Off-line COM Mapping can decrease the system integrator’s effort by solving different field problems.
Via off-line installation, user can process the host software installation and then install the NPort to
different fields.
Use the following procedure to map COM ports:
1.
On-line COM Mapping:
Connect NPort to the network
Apply Change.
2.
Set NPort to the proper IP address
Map COMs to your host
Off-line COM Mapping:

window.
If you select multiple serial ports or multiple NPorts, remember to check the
“Auto Enumerating” function to use the COM No. you select to be the first
COM No.
Hi-performance mode is the default for Tx mode. If the driver
completes sending data out to the NPort, the driver will respond Tx
Empty to the program.
But, under "classical mode", the driver will not notify the user’s
program that Tx is completed until all Tx data has been sent out
from the NPort; this mode will cause lower throughput.
If you want to make sure all data is sent out before further
processing, classical mode is recommended.
Enable/Disable Tx/Rx FIFO. If disabled, NPort will send one byte
each time the Tx FIFO becomes empty; and Rx interrupt will be
generated for each incoming byte. This will cause faster response
and lower throughput. If you want to use XON/XOFF flow control,
we recommend setting FIFO to Disable.
The Serial Parameter settings shown here are the default settings when the
NPort is powered on.
The program can define the serial parameter after the program opens the port
via Win32API with the specific serial parameters.

IP Serial LIB Function Groups
Example Program
IP Serial LIB
Overview
What is IP Serial Library?
IP Serial Library is a Windows library with frequently used serial command sets and subroutines. IP
Serial Library is designed to reduce the complexity and poor efficiency of serial communication over
TCP/IP. For example, Telnet can only transfer data, but it can't monitor or configure the serial line's
parameters.
Why Use IP Serial Library?
For programmers who are familiar with serial communication, IP Serial Library provides
well-designed function calls that have the same style as Moxa's PComm Library.
IP Serial Library is amazingly simple and easy to understand. By including it in your VB, C, or Delphi
programming environment, you can program your own TCP/IP application with the ability to control
serial communication parameters.
NPort Serial Device Servers use 2 TCP ports for communication between the NPort and host
computer's Real COM driver. NPort uses a data port and command port to provide pure data transfer
without decode and encode. Compared to using only one TCP port to control serial communication
(such as RFC 2217), IP Serial Library uses a command port to communicate with NPort in user's
program. IP Serial Library not only runs with excellent efficiency but also runs without any decode or
encode problems.
How to install IP Serial Library?
IP Serial Lib comes with the NPort Administration Suite. Refer to the IPSerial directory for more
detail about the function definitions.

Well Known Port Numbers
This appendix is for your reference about the Well Known port numbers that may cause network
problem if you set NPort into the same port. Refer to RFC 1700 for Well Known port numbers of refer
to the following introduction from the IANA.
The port numbers are divided into three ranges: the Well Known Ports, the Registered Ports, and the
Dynamic and/or Private Ports.
The Well Known Ports are those from 0 through 1023.
The Registered Ports are those from 1024 through 49151.
The Dynamic and/or Private Ports are those from 49152 through 65535.
The Well Known Ports are assigned by the IANA, and on most systems, can only be used by system
processes or by programs executed by privileged users. The following table shows famous port
numbers among the well-known port numbers. For more details, please visit IANA website:
