    Hello all, I dont know if this is the right area but anyway

    Heres my situation:

    I have a software that updates 2 devices firmware's, the software communicates with the devices via Serial Cable(RS-232) , my problem is: I only have 1 serial(COM) port in my motherboard, and i need to update the devices at the same time.

    So i was thinking the easiest way to do this is with a USB to Serial adapter, but, i dont know how to program the software to communicate with the USB port.

    This is what is set in the software:

    Device = gi://tuner@/dev/ttyS0

    I believe ttyS0 refers to the COM1 port, so my question is, what is the "code" to access the USB port, and, is this possible?
