I ran into an interesting issue that I can’t seem to explain. I am running a digi PortServer TS1 to convert a rs232 signal to IP. I am taping a custom weigand signal, converting it to rs232, then pushing it to an IP address using TCP Services.
When the Port is set to 80 the traffic comes across as a malformed gif packet with the correct information in the payload. when I set the port to anything other than 80 (8080, 23, 4242, 2121, so on) I do not get the payload information delivered to the destination IP address.
Destination machine has AV turned off and Firewall turned off for the purpose of this test. I am running wireshark to pull the information off the network adapter with a ip.src filter being set to the IP of the PortServer.
There are no errors on the PortServer and it is showing the data being recieved in the PortServer Logs. I am using RAW as the type and all other settings besides the destination is defaulted. I am also on the most current version of firmware(Version 82000747_V1 02/06/2012).
I really need to find out what I am missing. The payload is a simple 10 digit number that needs to be delivered to a custom application using port 4242.
Any thoughts on helping me troubleshoot would be greatly appreciated.
