The Digi Etherlite 2 Port 2 is a type of network communication hardware component that implements a serial concentrator using asynchronous serial port to the host computer network. This family of network communication hardware component has the built-in functionality to replace the installation of serial adapters associated with the network servers for software applications identified with Point Of Sales (retail), data collection, console management, and process control among others. The device driver supports the execution of most networking devices that are equipped with a console port. The deployment of this particular hardware component is based on a single Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol session which basically services all network traffic from all communication ports. This is contrary to the conventional method of having one session per port. What this translates to is lesser overhead from the point of the host as well as fewer traffic on the Ethernet based network.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
In additional to these functionalities, the Digi Etherlite 2 Port 2 via its corresponding device driver may appear to the network as a local TTY depending on the underlying operating system platform. In the same manner the native communication ports may also be configured as such with the proper operating system environment and correct device driver. When it comes to administration, the hardware style ports can deliver full control of the serial ports and since they feature real serial ports the do not carry the load common to Telnet, Reverse Telnet, Rlogin, or other similar networking infrastructures with heavy overheads. The device driver is designed in such a way that it will allow for a simplified installation method as well as configuration. The installation of the proper device driver will also help to prevent bluescreen errors during write timeout processing. Stack corruption problems may also be avoided when the correct device driver is utilized. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Digi Etherlite 2 Port 2 errors before installing any driver updates.
