    What is the speed of the between a DSC alarm panel (like a PC5010) and a
    locally connected PC running DLS?

    It's just a little faster than you can walk.

    Thanks Frank. I was hoping for something like 110 or 300 bps.

    I have a Power832 (PC5010) system and a PC running DLS-2002 SP2. I also
    have a Lantronix single port terminal server and their COM port redirector
    software on the PC.

    I idea is to connect to the alarm panel over the LAN rather than running a
    serial cable. The terminal server / redirector software works fine with
    other applications, but I have problems getting it going with the DSC
    system. I am suspecting that the problem is the link speed. The Lantronix
    unit does not support 110 bps (just 300 bps and higher).

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You do realize that plain ol un amplified RS232 with no reapeaters is good
    for 75 feet. Why not just take the unused pairs on your net drop and use
    them for a serial connection. (Ethernet only uses 2 pairs even though there
    are four in the cable.)

    Yeah... I know you want to do it over your ethernet.

    My experience is its way faster than that
