Windows Serial Console Daemon

Published May 11th, 2003, updated February 29th, 2008.

wconsd is a serial console server for Windows NT/2k/XP. It maps local com ports to an IP socket and makes it accessible with any TCP/IP terminal. I use it with PuTTY to set up routers when no IP address is assigned… PuTTY just feels better than Hyperterminal or TeraTerm;)
