Virtual Serial Port Driver – Serial Ports Explorer

Serial Ports Explorer helps visualizing all serial ports: actual (physical) serial ports present in your system and virtual serial ports created by VSPD and other Eltima products.

Each virtual serial ports pair is represented by the corresponding entry in Serial Ports Explorer window, where you can get detailed information about data sent/received, port status etc.
