Virtual device in Windows 10

Gary Graham
Greetings,

Trying to use socat to bridge from the network to a virtual serial port on
Windows.
The detailed output shows a connection is opening, but it does not stay
open.



socat -d -d pty,link=virtualcom0,waitslave tcp:192.168.0.11:8023
      2 [main] socat 15388 find_fast_cwd: WARNING: Couldn't compute

I downloaded an updated version of the Cygwin tools and tried again....

C:\cygwin64\bin>socat -d -d pty,link=/dev/ttyV0,waitslave tcp:
192.168.0.11:8023
2019/01/01 01:14:27 socat[10780] N PTY is /dev/pty0

address AF=2 192.168.0.18:55426
2019/01/01 01:14:28 socat[10780] N starting data transfer loop with FDs
[5,5] and [6,6]
2019/01/01 01:14:28 socat[10780] N read(5, 0x600056500, 8192): Input/output

2019/01/01 01:14:28 socat[10780] N socket 1 (fd 5) is at EOF
2019/01/01 01:14:28 socat[10780] N socket 1 (fd 5) is at EOF
2019/01/01 01:14:28 socat[10780] N socket 2 (fd 6) is at EOF
2019/01/01 01:14:28 socat[10780] N exiting with status 0

Can you tell why the PTY is closing ?

Regards,

Both ends of the processes a Cygwin process?  PTY is only available to
Cygwin.

What is on the other side of the virtual port?
You need either a data source/sink or an app.
