Is it possible to create a Virtual Serial Port in a Windows .NET application. Open this Serial Port in the same app to be used by a Mobile phone app, via bluetooth, to send data to?
I have a bluetooth dongle installed on my PC, which are assigned to COM11 and COM12. I assume these are Virtual Serial Ports created when the bluetooth dongle gets installed.
Is there a way of determining in a C#.NET app, via your tools, which COM ports are assigned to the Bluetooth Dongle (or bluetooth card if installed), so that this COM Port can be opened, allowing the Mobile Phone to discover the Serial Port Service to connect and send data to.
Or can I create a new Virtual Serial Port which mimics a Bluetooth Device, exposing a Serial Port Profile, such that the Mobile can discover this device and send data to the PC app?
Thanks very much for your help.
