'[EE]: Serial line analyzer, anyone?'

Hi Group!

Does anyone know of a serial line analyzer program?

I need to see what's going on between a PC and a 'black box' and log the
traffic for a while.
Yesterday I started rolling my own, but there is more to it than what
appears at first.

As I only need it this once, a time limited demo would suffice.


TIA,
Hugo

PS. Perhaps this should be [OT] ; If so - my apologies.

If your PC is running Windows, you can use portmon from
sysinternals.com:

I bought a BitScope for this purpose on one project, and have used it ever
since. If you want to see data over a long period, this may not be for you -
it doesn't have a tremendous amount of memory.
Then again, if it's free you want, it's altogether out.

I think I could write a VB program to display a pair of lines in text in an
hour or two. The hardware shouldn't be too hard either....Of course a full
analysis would be a bit more involved....

What were you rollin' that made you look elsewhere?

I use "Listen32".
I can't right now remember where I found it, but I i can mail
you a ZIP file of it (307k) if you want.

Anyway, it works just fine, with pretty printouts of
the data stream.

You need a second PC and a good terminal program (e.g. old DOS Xtalk) which can
display non-printable characters.
Probably your pc and device will not be transmitting at once so you can use 2 diodes
from their TX lines into the monitoring PC RXD input if you want to show both at once.
Sometimes this is ok and sometimes viewing (and saving) each output separately is
easier. I use a simple plastic box with three D connectors and a 3 way switch so I can
see PC, device or both.

Hi Ned!

I tried it, but it would only monitor ports not in use. Kinda misses the
point.

Anyway, most likely a RTFM-problem on my behalf. Will look into it again.

Thanks!

Been on my PC so long I don't know if the link still works.

I'd prefer not spending a lot anyway.

What's rollin'?
A VB app. I've successfully written apps to act as line spies (2 ports, null
modem to other PC) when I knew what was sent.
I figured that I could cut & paste for a Q & D serial analyzer, but as you
said, it's a bit more involved...

The domain name is up for grabs, but unfortunately no progs :(

If it's freeware I'd appreciate a private mail.

I'm pretty sure it's only printable chars, but line status is essential.
I'll try your approach as it saves on ports!

Hi,

   I bought Serial Monitor from http://www.hhdsoftware.com .It is sure worth the
money I paid for it. I also use a Palm with nijin and diconx when I need it
to be more portable. I am not sure where I found them but it should not be
hard to find.

Best regards,
Alexandre Guimaraes

Your Palm thing is neat! I'll do a search for Pocket PC versions.

"listen32.zip" mailed directly to Hugo...

English translation of Hugo's "Swedish note" :

 PS. The drills works perfectly. Enormous difference
     from HSS. Havn't broke anyone yet either.

:-)

Jan-Erik.

PS.
Today I made a deal on the very last lot of drills on
the PCB fab. I'm going to pick them up on Thursday. It's
20.000+ drills between 0.25 mm up to 6+ mm.

Never dared to touch that thing, 'Linux'. I haven't got enough time as it
is...

Thanks anyhow!

       Huh? The program works fine with other programs using the port. Just make
sure you start portmon first. It is an amazing program. TTYL

I use a couple,  D'Scope.com , old, small, runs on anything, and a newer one
called RS232.exe which lets you save a log of what you received. Both were
free.

Hi,

look at http://www.dunfield.com . Dave makes DLM in the LABTOOLS package
which is $50 and it is worth of the price, surely. I have it and use
extensively.

Imre
