Serial Port Splitter allows you to share one serial port among several applications. It creates virtual COM ports that are the exact copies of the specified physical COM port. Now, any program can work with its own virtual COM port not hindering other programs.
Data written to physical COM port get to all virtual COM ports. In the other hand, data written to virtual COM ports get to the physical one.
This feature allows creating virtual COM ports that are the exact copies of specified physical COM ports. All data written to physical COM port get to all virtual COM ports. Data written to a virtual COM port get to physical COM port.
In such a way, by means of virtual COM ports, several applications can exchange data simultaneously with the same device connected to a physical COM port.
At the same time, there is a possibility to configure ports access permissions, COM ports settings and so on.
Question: Is it possible to work with the same COM port without splitting it to several different virtual COM ports?
Answer: It is possible! There is a Share feature that is intended to accomplish it. Any physical COM port, being shared, can be opened by several applications simultaneously.
For time to time it is necessary to write the same data to several physical COM ports from one application. This task can be accomplished using Join feature. The program creates virtual COM port and forwards serial data from it to several physical COM ports.
