Default "Sniffing" the COM port comms


Hi all!

[1st Alternative]
Is there any program out there that will let me look at the ongoing transmission through the COM port in real time by listening out on the SAME COM port?
I know this *could* be impossible since when one application is in control of a specific COM port, then NO other program can access it.

[2nd Alternative]
Or can I just use another computer and "tap" into the serial cable and monitor everything with the HyperTerminal?

Thanks for any info you can provide!
Alex Skafidas

I normally use the second alternative....

It's not that hard....all you have to do is rig up a 3 way cable.
