Elk Alarm Panels Communications and AMX module

I am trying to integrate our first Elk- M1 alarm panel and I am having trouble with the communications. I have tried 2 different Masters NI-3000 and NI-4100 and the AMX demo module and is not working properly. It warns that you need to define the IP address, but I only need to control it serially. Can these panels work serially or only via IP? Do I need a special adapter or part to make it IP? The AMX module still defines it to a serial port on the NI.
I wonder if any of you out there that have successfully integrated with the Elk would be willing to share a custom module with me. The AMX module has a lot of extras, queries that may make it more confusing to the end user and it is also page dependent. I am looking for something that I can just add to a regular project. Any help will be well appreciated.

Thanks,

Ricardo

    Here is my Elk Ethernet Comm Module. (I have an RS232 module too but it should be easy for you to modify this module for RS232 by subtracting a few lines if you desire) It's only got what I needed at the time; YMMV.
