Subject: MOXA terminal server

Hi all,

We have recently been investigating options for controlling serial
devices via a terminal server.  We particularly want the ability to
software switch between RS-232/RS-422/RS-485.  One that has this
capability and seems to be generally recommended by the EPICS community
is the MOXA NP6650 32-port device server.

However, after buying one to evaluate, we discovered an annoying
'feature': to change the settings of a serial port over the web
interface (baud rate etc) requires a reboot of the server, which of
course disrupts communications on all ports (and actually crashes my
soft IOC, though this might be a streamDevice issue...).

We wondered if anybody else has also come across this problem?  If so
have you found a way of getting around it, or do you have any other
recommendations?  I have contacted MOXA technical support about the
issue, but they don't seem prepared to fix it.

Thanks in advance,
Emma
