It is possible to utilize a pair of Cisco routers to convert from RS232 to IP and back to RS232. Through the use of Block Serial Tunneling (BSTUN), a serial interface on a Cisco router can be configured to encapsulate the serial traffic into IP.It may also be possible to leverage the router to service other traffic types. Examples of healthcare-specific legacy protocols still in wide use include serial printers, bisync printers, SNA, LAT, IPX, and DECnet. Since many of these legacy protocols are still found in many healthcare organizations, providing a dual use for a wiring closet based Cisco router can help offset the cost differential to that of point systems.

BSTUN is supported on the following platforms using IOS version 12.4(17):

Router series 2801, 2811, 2821, 2851
