'trapping serial data in W95'

I need to log the commands that an EXE application is sending to the local
modem in W95.

Of course I can do it using a 2nd PC that will act as a datascope.

It will accept data from - say - COM1 from the 1st PC and send the same
data to the modem from COM2, logging the data in the process (and viceversa).

However, I heard that some sw tools can trap send/received data to/from a
serial port in W95.

Somebody can point me to such a beast ?

Thank you

 Reminds me of a program I understand is called "Back Orifice" (as a
take-off of M$!).

 That sounds unnecessarily complex.  Should be quite easy to make up a
"T" (Tee) cable that *parallels* forward and return serial paths to two
serial ports.  You still need two ports on the second PC (but you may
not really wish/ need to view *both* directions) but your software is
simpler.

 (Two instances of) a common terminal program would probably do, and
the paralleled RS-232 receivers should not cause excess loading.  I know
there are datascope programs (and cables) sold for that application.

 Quite likely - I don't know details.

Well I do! <g> There's a program called PortMon that traps all data Tx/Rx via
the serial port(s), here's the linky:

http://www.sysinternals.com/portmon.htm

Sadly, it won't trap data that's being sent in a DOS program (box or pure).

Hi there

Why don't you just use HyperTerminal that comes with Win9X....that works
fine

Several.

TracePlus Winsock - I forget the web address but do a search.
Trumpet Winsock - latest can log all comms data.
Comsol have some datascope software. http://www.consol.co.uk.
Greenleaf have datascope software.

When I needed to do this, I wrote a program that put 2 com ports data on a
screen with different colors.  I then used the receive line of both com
ports and tied them to each data line of the monitored port.  I did all this
on the same computer. I have 4 com ports on my desktop.
The program I created in C is compiled under National Instruments CVI, you
could download their demo(or ask for a demo CD) and I could give you a copy
of the project, it is not a finished product, but it was used to decipher
serial communications.  I used it to debug my Omron PLC communication
library.  The options are constants that require a compile.
NI CVI Demo:  I think you can run a project with the demo, but you can't
create a EXE.

Let me know if this will help, and I will dig up the code.
Best regards,
Giles

Giles,

the program Portmon (free in the net at http://www.sysinternals.com) does already
ev I need.

Thanks a lot.
