in the online documentation of avrdude you find (http://www.nongnu.org/avrdude/user-manual/avrdude_4.html#Option-Descriptions):

-P port

Use port to identify the device to which the programmer is attached. Normally, the default parallel port is used, but if the programmer type normally connects to the serial port, the default serial port will be used. See Appendix A, Platform Dependent Information, to find out the default port names for your platform. If you need to use a different parallel or serial port, use this option to specify the alternate port name.


For programmers that attach to a serial port using some kind of higher level protocol (as opposed to bit-bang style programmers), port can be specified as net:host:port. In this case, instead of trying to open a local device, a TCP network connection to (TCP) porton host is established. The remote endpoint is assumed to be a terminal or console server that connects the network stream to a local serial port where the actual programmer has been attached to. The port is assumed to be properly configured, for example using a transparent 8-bit data connection without parity at 115200 Baud for a STK500.

This feature is currently not implemented for Win32 systems.


Did you already try this?

Kind regards

Is there any way to realise a remote programming with avrdude?

Use case: our AVR device with a bootloader (emulating a programmer) will be connected to an ethernet-to-serial converter (well, one which operates over cellular network), so on the server side I need to connect to a specific TCP port with avrdude, instead of /dev/ttySx or ttyUSBx.

Does anybody want to get sponsored for creating such a patch?

Or would something like remserial be better?
