Web Interface

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a popular way to encrypt information over the Internet. Websites use SSL to create an encrypted channel allowing the user to send and receive data securely.

With the Ethernet Option on the SERIMUX® Console Serial Port Switch, this secure channel is used to configure the console switch via the SERIMUX Web Interface (view product demo) .

Using the website, a remote user can manage ports and users, clear the Port Buffer, create and initiate modem connections, and other administrative tasks safely and conveniently. The Telnet feature of the SERIMUX Web Interface requires the latest version of JAVA™.
