I need to add a new audio preamplifier (Constellation Audio) to an existing Crestron system. The good news -- it has extensive set of serial commands. The bad news -- it does not have an accessible RS232 port, only USB port with a built-in FTDI USB-to-Serial converter.
I connected it to my computer with a terminal program, and it works like a charm.
So, how can I control it with 3-Series controller? Of course, I can connect the preamp to a PC, then find some code which would allow telnet access to that port... but having a PC dedicated just for this purpose is kinda ridiculous. Even a Raspberry PI...
I could not find a single off-the-shelf device which can connect USB port to Ethernet and allow simple telnet access.
So, what is the best way to solve this problem?

Can you try an external usb-to-serial cable? If that works then you can use the 232 ports on the crestron processor.
