Can you redirect data sent to a serial and send it to a USB port?

Yes. Use a USB to serial converter. The converted port will act like a normal comport. Even the name.

Example of a USB to serial converter:

When sending data to one of your I/O devices the determining factor to where it goes is the drivers installed for the device. Perhaps you are using some sort of serial/USB adapter, in this case if the drivers installed don't support a USB port you will need to update them. If such drivers exist for your device you will probably find them at the manufacture's website.

if you have the right connection to the usb port it will redirect data

How do you redirect output to serialport?

The best way is to attach a serial port using device to the serial port of your computer and use your preferred program to send data to the device


How does computer send data through serial port?

how does computer send data through serial port?


Can a serial port send data over a longer distance than a parallel port?

Usually, because a serial port doesn't have to deal with the problem of signal skew that can jumble the data on a parallel port and gets worse proportional to distance.


What are the advantages and disadvantages of a serial port?

the speed of serial ports are slow. but we can send data on long distances as serial cable have low cost.


What is the function of the serial port?

To send and receive data between computers or other electronic devices.


What is the difference of serial and parallel ports?

Serial ports only allow one device to send and one device to receive at a time, where a parallel port can send and receive data at the same time.


Why are keyboards connected to the serial port?

The keyboard is connected to the serial port due to the fact that serial cords are much faster at transmitting and receiving data compared to a parallel cord. Serial sends multiple data in both directions and parallel can only send data along a few lines in only one direction, so the data has to wait for the path to clear before data paths can switch.


How are serial ports and com ports different?

A serial port is a type of port which sends and receives data one bit at a time, as opposed to parallel ports which can send and receive in multiple streams. A COM port is a type of serial port. At one time it was the most common type of serial port, but USB has supplanted its role. It is becoming increasingly rare for modern PC's to include the old-style COM ports.


Name 4 devices that send out data?

Video and Sound card via expansion port. CD drives send out data onto a disc. Lastly a USB port to anything that fits into the port.


What are the differences between a parallel port and a serial port?

Parallel ports are easy to program and faster compared to the serial ports. But main disadvantage is it needs more number of transmission lines. Because of this reason parallel ports are not used in long distance communications. Let us know the basic difference between working of parallel port and serial port. In serial ports, there will be two data lines: One transmission and one receive line. To send a data in serial port, it has to be sent one bit after another with some extra bits like start bit, stop bit and parity bit to detect errors. But in parallel port, all the 8 bits of a byte will be sent to the port at a time and a indication will be sent in another line. There will be some data lines, some control and some handshaking lines in parallel port. If three bytes of data 01000101 10011100 10110011 is to be sent to the port, parallel port communication is faster then serial port.


In regards to computers what is a serial port used for?

A serial port is used in most if not all operating systems today. Also called communication ports, they send 8 bytes of data one bit at a time. This results in slower transmission time, but lower cable costs.

What are the examples of serial and parallel ports?

The PC's parallel port, including ECP, EPP, bidirectional, and IEEE-1284 modes (and other I/O ports as well). Ethernet, FireWire, and USB all send data as a serial stream,


What is the function of a parallel port on a computer?

The parallel port was mainly created to be able to send data to a printer. As time passed, it was used for other things, like transferring data between computers with software, or to attach a tape drive. It is called a parallel port because there are at least 8 pins carrying data at the same time, thus enabling it to transmit entire bytes at a time. In a serial port, the data is sent lengthwise, one bit at a time.

The most common use for serial is modem or communication to a device.Both use IRQ resources. Parallel use LPT ports in the Operating System, while Serial uses COM ports.


What are the disadvantage of serial transmission?

Speed... a serial connection can only send one piece of data at a time. Parallel connections have multiple data 'channels' sending data simultaneously 0- which increases the data rate considerably.


What is the purpose of configuring a switch port as a trunk port?

The idea of configuring a switch port as a trunk port is to allow the switch to receive and send data from several VLANs on a single port. Otherwise, a separate port would be required for every VLAN, if, for example, you want to connect two switches among themselves.The idea of configuring a switch port as a trunk port is to allow the switch to receive and send data from several VLANs on a single port.

How many bits can a serial port send and receive at a time using how many wires?

In a serial connection, at any given time in one direction r the other, data is transferred across only one wire, one bit at a time. The usual example of a serial connection, DB-9, uses two wires, but still keeps to this rule.


Is a port also known as a peripheral device?

NO. A computer port is a hardware or virtual device (software) that allows data to pass from one area to another of the PC's hardware and/or software environment. The Periphial device is usually a hardware device the needs to interface with the appropriate port in order to send, receive or interact with the PC and other devices attached to the PC. An example would be somthime like a USB (universal serial bus) external hardive attached to a USB port in order to read and write data.
