I'm on windows and I need to access my com5 serial port via sockets. I tried serproxy but it does not work. Is there a better tool to do it?

This serial port com5 is a virtual serial port of my 3g modem.

Serial port is more than just a stream. You also use IOCTLs to set the speed, parity, flow control, etc. And this does not map into sockets directly. So you need to explain better what you want to do, what do you expect to happen, and what exactly "does not work" is. – haimg Dec 5 '11 at 1:04
I've found com2tcp useful, but it needs an identical client on the other end - not just any socket client. – grawity Dec 5 '11 at 8:58
