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. 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. Note: Virtual Serial to Ethernet Connector
makes it easy to share COM port over the network. Virtual serial ports created with the software’s help share serial data at a high speed and are absolutely reliable.
