    Default Software to monitor / spy on serial COM port

    Seeking an application that will passively monitor or spy on traffic over a serial COM port. Requirements are:
    •Windows 7 64 bit compatible
    •Free, and not crippled until paid for
    •Able to monitor a COM port without the use of hardware
    •Able to monitor a COM port that is already in use between another application and a connected device i.e. passively able to monitor in both directions without interrupting the COM port's functionality.

    I've tried a LOT and most won't work on Win 7, others are crippleware, others are intrusive and not passive at all. Would appreciate any suggestions, thanks in advance

    Have you tried PuTTY?

    P.S. Actually it looks like PuTTY can only do incoming traffic.

    If you need good sniffer then check the site
