Virtual Serial Port ActiveX Control Overview

Virtual Serial Port is a powerful advanced ActiveX Control that allows your application to create custom additional virtual serial ports in a system and fully control them. Created virtual serial ports look and work absolutely the same like real serial ports for other Windows applications. From your application you can control data sent to a virtual serial port by other applications and respond to them by sending your own data to the virtual serial port, which will be received by other Windows applications as if it were sent from a real serial port.

Advanced VSP ActiveX Control events detecting engine notifies you about various events occurring in the system while other applications work with the virtual serial port.
