Serial Port Splitter allows several serial communications applications to get simultaneous access to serial device plugged to a COM port.
How it works
Serial Port Splitter creates the necessary number of virtual COM ports linked to the specified physical COM port. Created virtual serial ports appear as usual hardware COM ports.
When virtual serial ports are opened by communications applications correspondingly, data from the physical COM port is sent to all opened virtual COM ports simultaneously. And vice versa, data from each communications application written to a virtual COM port is sent to the physical COM port.
Splitting physical COM-port
The program allows you to split one physical COM port into two and more virtual COM ports. Each virtual serial port appears as the exact copy of a hardware COM port. Thus several communications applications can exchange data with serial device connected to the physical COM port simultaneously.
Sharing physical COM-port
Serial Port Splitter makes it possible to open a single physical COM port by several communications applications simultaneously. Thus serial communications applications get access to a serial device using the same COM port name without necessity to create several virtual COM ports. In this case you don't have to adjust each communications application to work with particular virtual COM port.
Joining physical COM-port
In case if you need to send data to several serial devices from one communications application simultaneously, you can simply join the necessary number of physical COM ports into one virtual. In this case data from every physical COM port will be sent to the created virtual serial port, and data from the communications application will be sent to all joined hardware COM ports via virtual COM port.
