Serial Functions in Perspective Scope

I was looking to see some solutions for replacing a Vision client that currently is writing over an RS232 serial port to a piece of test equipment, and I noticed that the docs was showing system.serial commands in the Perspective scope.

Are these just executing everything the same was as the gateway scope and the gateway would need to be able to talk to the device over serial?

Also, I am not super familiar with Serial, however how would I open a port to a serial device that is connected with a Serial to Ethernet converter? Since every time I see the ability to open a port, I would assume that is through the client device. So I would likely need to use something like a TCP connection to the device instead. That is just a guess though really.


With a TCP/Serial converter, just use a socket. (Set the converter to raw and preset its port parameters.)
