When using Cinema, Serial PLUS, or Serial-To-Ethernet applications people will be generally using the serial port to talk to other devices or send commands. Knowing what registry keys need to be set to when communicating on them is important. This tutorial is for setting the registry keys up for the Serial-to-Ethernet application.

To start, when using Serial-to-Ethernet, the connection that will be set up is accessed through the command line once all the registry keys have been set. So first thing is to go to the support tool and go to applications. Once there make sure that the Serial-to-Ethernet application is checked, otherwise check it and reboot.

Once the JNIOR reboots, go to the console tab and type “ps” to see if the application is running. 

If it is then next go to the registry tab and in the section App-Data find the TCP-to-Serial program.

Here is where all the information for creating the serial connection is contained. Make sure that the SerialPort value is set to AUX if the port being used is the Auxiliary port and not the RS-232 port. Now all the values should be set to connect serially to the JNIOR. Go to the JNIOR support tool and select tools –> command line. This will bring up the command line to give serial commands to the JNIOR. 

First, to the right of the TCP/IP drop down button, enter the IP of the JNIOR that is being used. To the right of that, type in the port number registry key of TCP-to-Serial. The TCP/IP drop down should already be on the correct option.  Also click on the Options drop down and select all the options not checked. Once this is done, click connect and now you should be serially connected to the JNIOR!
