Can I increase the number of active ports of my current license?
Yes, by purchasing a Redirector License Upgrade.
Is the 30-day trial software a full version of COM/IP?
Yes, for up to 256 active ports. Download and run the COM/IP installer, leaving the license key blank to begin the trial period.
Can I extend my trial period past 30 days?
Yes, contact us.
Are software updates and tech support free?
Yes. Your purchased license key permanently enables the software and updates are available for download at no charge. We provide expert technical support at no charge, before and after your purchase.
Can COM/IP call a real modem?
No. As a modem emulator, COM/IP uses TCP/IP network connections. It does not use phone lines in any way.
Can I create more virtual serial ports than I use at one time?
Yes, you can create and configure up to 4,096 virtual ports. Your COM/IP license key controls only the number of simultaneously active (open) ports.
How can I tell if I should be using the Serial/IP Redirector instead?
If your application does not use modem commands, use the Serial/IP Redirector, which connects to preconfigured TCP/IP endpoints.
