I am facing one problem in my office. We are having one pc connection with a serial port device ( HSM ) which is used by one applicaton. It is working fine. Now we are using one more application to connect with that serial device. But, occationaly the device is give "Device is not functioning error". My doubt is whether two application can use single serial port device simultaneously ?. If so, any configuration required ?. If not, Is there any other way to do this ?.
Pl. can help to solve this issue.
