    Serial port mux?

    I have hardware serial port that's feeding NMEA data INTO my computer in the car.

    I also have another hardware serial port going TO the BCT15.

    I wanna be able to pipe the NMEA input to the other serial port, and be able to kill it for that 1% time that I'll be programming it or controlling it, without having to plug into the front port.


    So... basically, pipe data from COM1 to COM2..

    NMEA----->COM1 -------> COM2

    I tried Xport, but it looks like it can only create virtual ports, not forward to hardware ports.

    Suggestions? The only software I seem to find is $150 (ouch!)

    I'm fairly certain that this software can do it:

    that's for software ports.

    I need hardware <-> hardware.

    I don't care if it has to go Hardware<->software<->software<->hardware as long as the conversion takes place.

    jparks: The hub4com application, which is a part of the com0com project can do exactly what you need.
