PortSettings4

This policy setting is used for configuring certain port parameters that are used for their redirection:

"Source port number" - Number of the COM port redirected from the client side (e.g. 2 means COM2).

"Source port device" - Name of Serial port device redirected from the client side (e.g. "COM5" for Windows, or "/dev/ttySerial0" for Linux. This paramerter has higer priority than Source port number.).

"Destination virtual port number" - virtual COM port number, created on the agent side and corresponding to the COM port on the client side.

"Autoconnect" - If this flag is set, the port is automatically redirected to the agent side when it plugged on the client side.

"IgnoreDsr" - If this flag is set, the DSR signal is ignored.

"Pause before close port" - Troubleshooting setting. Time (in ms) to wait after virtual COM port was closed by user. Required for some USB-COM adapters.

"Use pause before send data" - If this flag is set, pause before send data after port opening will use. See value "Pause before send data"

"Pause before send data" - Troubleshooting setting. Time (in ms) to wait before virtual COM port will transfer data to physycal side. Required for some specific serial devices (Olivetti card reader).

"Serial2USBModeChangeEnabled" - Troubleshooting setting. Fixes specific issues of GlobalSat BU353 GPS adapter (and some other Prolific USB-COM adapters).

"Disable errors in wait mask" - Troubleshooting setting. Disables "error" value in serial COM mask. See "http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa363479(v=vs.85).aspx". Required for some software.

"HandleBtDisappear" - Troubleshooting setting. Supports BlueTooth COM-ports specific behavior.

"UsbToComTroubleShooting" - Troubleshooting setting. Fixes some specific issues of USB-COM adapters.

"Use fixed baud rate" - If this flag is set, the value specified in "Bits per second" is used instead of the baudrate set by serial communications application.

"Bits per second" - Fixed baudrate value in bits per second (applied, if "Use fixed baud rate" is set).

"Use fixed line control" - - If this flag is set, the values specified in "Data bits", "Parity" and "Stop bits" are used instead of the values set by serial communications application.

"Data bits" - Fixed Databits value (applied, if "Use fixed line control" is set) [values from 5 to 8].

"Parity" - Fixed Parity value (applied, if "Use fixed line control" is set).

"Stop bits" - Fixed Stop bits value (applied, if "Use fixed line control" is set).

"Use fixed flow control" - - If this flag is set, the value specified in "Flow control" is used instead of the value set by serial communications application.

"Flow control" - Fixed Stop bits value (applied, if "Use fixed flow control" is set).


If this policy setting is enabled, its parameters are used during port redirection.

If this policy setting is disabled or not configured, parameters specified in local program settings are used for port redirection.

If this policy setting is configured for the computer, it has priority over policy setting configured for the user.

Supported on: At least Windows Server 2003 operating systems or Windows XP Professional
