I'm looking for a solution to map a modem (comm port) to a host in a VM cluster.

If you have one physical server you can connect the TRM240 to the USB port of the physical server and load the virtual comm port driver into a VM host. This works fine.

But if you have 2 or more physical servers in a VM cluster its difficult to map the USB port, because the VM host can move around between the physical servers.

Do you have a solution where you can connect the modem to an eth port on a switch (as with the gateway TRB140 but with a built-in modem) ?

Many years ago we used this solution a couple of times...

Best Regards, Leif Hagman

Thank you for reaching out!

As I understand, you'd like to split the control of the modem between multiple physical devices, as micro-USB from TRM/TRB would branch out into multiple machines. This is not a supported use case by our modems. To achieve this, it's always best to use physical Ethernet ports.

However, if that's not possible, a switchable USB hub may be one of the only options, but as this is not tested, I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to help much.

Let me know if there is anything else I can help with!

Best regards,
