You first begin by telling us WHAT 'linux' you're using, on what hardware. What version/distro? A 'real' machine or a VMware machine? And since there's alot of software out there that does this, you'll have to tell us what you're using.

Check Google for "linux virtual serial port". Lots of information.

Hey I have a linux red hat enterprise version 5.0 installed on the computer.

Its a pentium processor.


I read to test one of my application. My application will write on the serial port and it is by the hardware. And after processing the information the hardware would reply which I need to read by the application.

So instead of hardware I want to try my application using Virtual Serial port.

Thanking you .

Ok. Did you Google for it??? Lots of How-to's come up.....

And since you're using RedHat Enterprise, why don't you give them a call, since you're paying for support?
