The CommsTool Box can create a "Virtual Serial Port, called the "Data Port." Simply make sure that your user selects the "Data Port," in the preferences of all applications that want to use the same port, then let the system software handle all the switching back and forth between apps and the serial port. Hope this helps, Sean.
