In my work to make some home build custom apps for my IHC controller i need a way to see the traffic in the serial signal between the IHC controller and the PC's COM port i found the BillSerialMonitor app there is a very nice small app there is freeware ;-)
It work as a monitor pipe between to COM ports, One real hardware port (COM1) that the IHC controller is connected to and a virtual COM port(COM4) that the IHC app use. The IHC app thinks that it is direct connect to the IHC controller on COM4 but it is not ;-)
Only bad thing is it not wrap the data out in the monitor window, as you can see the blue text is from the IHC app and the black text is from the IHC controller, but it is a small thing and if you use the capture to file function the output is alot better.
It can be download from this website http://www.symcod.com/billsm/
Thanks to symcod.com for making this app and share it as freeware.
