(Serial Ports on) Steroids enables users to execute remote C functions in a Python shell over a serial interface. It is useful for embedded system testing and industrial automation. It generates C code for the target and a Python script for the host automatically from a C header file.
C-Kermit is a combined serial and network communication software package offering a consistent, medium-independent, cross-platform approach to connection establishment, terminal sessions, file transfer, character-set translation, numeric and alphanumeric paging, and automation of communication tasks. Recent versions include FTP and HTTP clients as well as an SSH interface, all of which can be scripted and aware of character-sets. It supports built-in security methods, including Kerberos IV, Kerberos V, SSL/TLS, and SRP, FTP protocol features such as MLSD, and source-code parity with Kermit 95 2.1 for Windows and OS/2.
ConMan is a serial console management program designed to support a large number of console devices and simultaneous users. It supports local serial devices, remote terminal servers (via the telnet protocol), IPMI Serial-Over-LAN (via FreeIPMI), Unix domain sockets, and external processes (e.g., using Expect to control connections over telnet, ssh, or IPMI Serial-Over-LAN). Its features include logging (and optionally timestamping) console device output to file, connecting to consoles in monitor (R/O) or interactive (R/W) mode, allowing clients to share or steal console write privileges, and broadcasting client output to multiple consoles.
Conserver provides remote access to serial port consoles and logs all data to a central host. Local and network serial connections are supported. Server console history can be replayed from the console app even if the server is down, and multiple users can connect to a single serial connection.
DataReel is a free, cross-platform database and communications toolkit. It can be used to rapidly develop and deploy multi-threaded database and communications applications. The DataReel toolkit is composed of a modular C++ library designed to build cross-platform infrastructures for end-user applications, embedded systems, and reusable libraries. DataReel's unique modular design simplifies adaptation, allowing you to determine the level of complexity. DataReel makes Internet connectivity and database programming easy.
