CI853 Serial Communication
We have a device that uses Serial Protocol. We want to connect from the CI853 to an unmanaged switch and then out to the device. Will it work as described or is something else needed for the "addressing" of the serial device to be maintained? Not sure how an address of 2.1 (CI853 second unit and using first port) makes it through to the device after going through a switch as it does not have an IP address.
CI853 has 2 serial ports RS232, you can't use switch for them.
You need to prepare a cable and connect the port by serial connection to the other devise or RS232/RS485 converter, doesn't matter the connector is RJ45.
Addresses of both ports are visible in hardware strucute: COM1 = 1.1, COM2 = 1.2 if CI853 is installed directly to the CPU
