    Two applications and one serial port?

    Is there a way for two processes to read from a serial port at the same time?

    Depends on the operating system, and how the ports are accessed. In short, I think so.

    The OS is Solaris 8. I need a little help with this if anyone is familiar with this type of comms.

    I guess the only way would be to write some kind of proxy.
