If you are desperate you can use the libftdi driver for direct access, although that won’t work if you can’t modify the client application.

We use them all of the place here. A pair of serial servers work with two devices and cost 9 times as much.

Does anyone know of a USB > RS232 adapter that DOESN’T suck under Win7/64?

The keyspan works fine with Cisco console cables. Wed May 04, 7: Lots of other stuff that doesn’t work, but the Keyspan has worked with everything so far. Does anyone that uses RS often have any good suggestions? That way, if the cable fits it works. I must be thinking of a different cable.

I have one of these that I scored off eBay some years ago: I do use the ‘official’ FTDI driver rather than a specific rebranded driver though. Los Angeles, CA Registered: Sun May 08, 1: Sep 20, Posts: When I cleaned out the installation by hand and installed the prolific drivers it worked seriwl.
