Greetings EE Gods.
I have a piece of hardware that talks to my computer via COM3 USB-to-SERIAL. works great.
I have five programs, who connect to the COM port, which all five connect to COM3.
The problem is that when one program is connected to COM3, none of the others do.
Is there a way to multiplex them, so all of the programs can work with the piece of gear?
ie, a virtual COM switch or router? something I would run on the computer?
I am also a programmer, C# and VB...any coding ideas would be great too.
