    virtual ports

    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?
    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.

    oops!

    sorry bout that! 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.

    Well read this

    scroll down to "Communications Resources"

    A quick google suggests you have this
    http://www.eltima.com/products/vspdxp/
    Which basically says that you have "COMx" in addition to your normal COM1 etc.
