With Virtual Serial Port Driver, you can connect several real ports to one virtual for their further automatic switching. By opening the virtual port, a serial application can get access to any joined real port and device attached to it. Several applications can open a virtual port at a time and connect to available devices. The software will automatically detect a free real port and assign it to the corresponding app.
The number of serial apps connected to a virtual port at a time should not exceed the number of real ports added to the port bundle.
