    Hello, I'd like to know if it is possible to use a COM port on a remote PC by an application working on another PC of the network.

    Which OS ?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    OS = winxp, but I need a "programmer oriented" tool: a library or something else which helps my C++ application to be able to use a remote COM port.

    Thank you,

    Well you could write some client/server based network app which allows you to talk to the remote machine, and the server there opens a COM port for you.
