Advanced Virtual COM Port v.2.3 - Help


Advanced Virtual COM Port is the professional serial communications utility, which combines network and local virtual serial port functions into one.

It gives you the ability to:

One of the many uses for Advanced Virtual COM Port is to allow software that only supports COM port communications, to join the Internet community and communicate not only with computers that are close by, but also with ones on the other side of the world! This is done by emulating a null-modem cable over a network.

Another use of Advanced Virtual COM Port is to share any of your serial devices, whether it is a bar code scanner, modem, sensor, oscilloscope, laboratory or industrial instrument, etc. over a LAN or the Internet. There is no need to move this equipment here and there, just connect it to a server computer, create a shared COM port, and anyone with installed Advanced Virtual COM Port will be able to use this equipment remotely as if it were connected to his/her computer.

And finally, Advanced Virtual COM Port allows you to create pairs of virtual serial ports locally connected using a virtual null-modem cable. There is no need to have real cables or serial ports. This function is designed to speed up developing and debugging of applications. You can debug your software that uses COM ports for communication with hand-held computers, data acquisition equipment, etc. You can even develop your own device emulator and connect it to your software through a pair of virtual COM ports.
