I am curious to know if the DNC programs can be sent over straight network connections. The RemoDNC software only allows you to configure a COM port in the setup, however some of our new machines are coming with native ethernet ports so I was wondering if we still need to use a network-to-RS232 connection?

|In the list of Com Ports scroll it back up to the very top and you'll see you can select network IP address.|
But i don't think the CNC is capable of DNC-ing link that. RemoDNC will do it but I don't think the CNC can DNC through its ethernet port.
The IP option is in RemoDNC so that you can connect ethernet-RS232 boxes at the CNC and run over ethernet hat way.

|If we use one DNC to control several CNC, how to connect by RS232 cable between a DNC PC to several COM Ports of CNC. Thanks.|

|If you want to connect RS232 all the way to the CNC and you want to connect multiple CNCs then you obviously need more RS232 ports at the computer.|
You could purchase MultiPort Serial adapter. Usually a PCI card that you slot inside the computer that exposes 4, 8, 16 or more RS232 ports.
Or you can use a USB/RS232 box. a Single USB cable plugs into the computer and the 'box' then has a number of RS232 ports. The USB/RS232 option is usually cheaper than PCI.
Or you can connect Rs232 port servers to your business ethernet network or wifi.
