SMC2450 Description

The SMC2450 driver allows the FieldServer to transfer data to and from devices over RS-232 using Sierra Monitor Corporation SMC2450 protocol. The FieldServer can emulate either a Server or Client. The information that follows describes how to expand upon the factory defaults provided in the configuration files included with the FieldServer.
