Shared Serial Ports

Serial ports can be used in various ways, e.g. for exchanging data with modems, scanners and other peripherals, monitoring devices, testing software programs, etc. There might be times when the number of physical serial devices is just not adequate to satisfy our needs. What do you do then, how does one share serial port? Use special software – Eltima’s Serial Splitter. It helps you share COM port between several applications and vice versa – join data received from multiple COM ports into a single flow to feed it into a single application. Serial Splitter makes it easy to share COM port over network, virtual serial ports created with the software’s help transfer data at a high speed and are absolutely reliable. Access and use of a shared serial port can be regulated – set the rights to read, write and change states of control lines. If required, you can combine real and virtual COM ports into bundles.

Eltima Port Virtualization Technology

With Serial Ports Sharing solution you can

Make several applications access one serial port simultaneously

Thanks to usage of virtual serial port technology, Shared Serial Ports solution let’s several applications use the same COM port at a time. Share COM port and get multiple virtual copies of it with the same name for your convenience.

Control serial ports signal lines

Virtual copies of serial port will appear to any application working with them as real serial port, supporting all serial port settings, parity, flow control, databits, stopbits, and offering strict baudrate emulation.

Set access rights for each application

By default all applications are allowed to read from and write to the real serial port and aren't allowed to change the port's control lines state. Shared Serial Ports software allows setting the rights for some applications to change control lines state.
