WiSnap Support

This page demonstrates how a COM-to-TCP connection can be made from a PC to the WiSnap RS232 adapter. The first step is to install the Null-modem emulator (com0com) application, which installs and works as a driver for a pair (or many pairs) of virtual COM ports. You can download the com0com installer HERE. You can create as many pairs of virtual COM port as you like, and use any pair to connect one application to another. The COM port pairs will be given names starting at CNCA0 and CNCB0. These names can be changed, but the default convention begins with “CNC,” followed by the A-B pairing…
Select A Terminal Application Before we begin, it's important that you make sure that you have a compatible terminal emulator installed on your computer. Here, at Serialio, we often use our product, JavaTerm. This obviously is not required — there is a myriad of different terminal emulators (for Mac and Windows) that will do just fine. If you don't know where to start,  we recommend YAT (Yet Another Terminal) for Windows and zTerm for Mac. Configure The Terminal  As many of you likely know, serial devices and the respective application/hardware used to communicate with them must…
This app note demonstrates how to connect the WiSnap RS-232 dongle via Wi-Fi to an Android AP (access point) that is connected to the internet via a 3G/4G cellular network. To clarify, we are going to set up the Android device (with access to a cellular network) as a Wi-Fi access point, then configure the WiSnap (via RS-232 connection and terminal application) to connect to the Android's Wi-Fi access point. This way, the WiSnap will be able to connect to the Internet through the Android's cellular network. Set up the Wi-Fi access point (AP) on the Android device 1. Launch the Settings…
To configure the WiSnap adapter for software access point mode follow the below steps: 1. Connect the WiSnap adapter to your PC using a USB-RS232 cable. 2. Configure your terminal application (PuTTY, TeraTerm, etc.) with the settings: 9600 baud 8 data bits 1 stop bit no parity no flow control 3. Start the terminal application. 4. Type the following commands followed by a carriage return (enter key): $$$ - should see a CMD response and the green LED will begin blinking quickly set wlan ssid - sets the SSID of the WiSnap when in AP mode set wlan chan 0…
The WiSnap WiFi to RS232 adapter can be used to configure devices such as Cisco switches and routers using an iPad. Here we have configured a WiSnap AAA adapter using software AP mode to connect to a Cisco Catalyst 2950 switch on the console cable. We then connect through any Telnet app to send configuration commands. Click here to configure the WiSnap adapter in soft AP mode. The WiSnap adapter is acting as an access point and DHCP server. The WiSnap adapter is configured on IP 10.10.1.50 and automatically assigns an IP of 10.10.1.60 to the iPhone 6 used in this example. Connect to the…
