Serial to Ethernet Connector runs as a daemon. SEC Daemon is a program that provides access to shared serial ports over the network.
SEC Daemon listens for connections from other Serial to Ethernet Connector instances, initiates outgoing connections and transfers data from a serial port to network and vice versa.
It is normally started at boot from /etc/init.d/
