Hello! my question is do you handle virtual serial ports the same way you handle serial ports? or better yet, how do you access a virtual serial port?
i got these virtual serial ports software which allows you to create pairs of com port up to 127 pairs. i'm planning to connect 2 applications to a pair of virtual serial ports, but i'm not really sure if the way i handle serial ports will actually work with virtual serial ports.
I suppose you want us to guess which operating system and compiler you're on about?
sorry bout that! :p :p i'm using windows xp and visual C++. oh, by the way, if it helps, the software is "virtual serial port driver XP".
any info would be greatly appreciated. i just want to start as soon as i can 'cause as of now, i'm kinda stuck in a tar pit. :D :D
Well read this
scroll down to "Communications Resources"
A quick google suggests you have this
Which basically says that you have "COMx" in addition to your normal COM1 etc.
thanks for the info, mateys :D :D
