I am running 2.0 (etc) and I notice that when I add a comport to CAT, such as com 4 it automatically adds a second port at 104. I have not noticed this before and is there a reason for the doubling up of a comport?

Smart CAT makes two ports for a very simple reason: The lower-numbered one is the one that is made available externally to your software; the other connects to the radio internally, and cannot be used otherwise. And its number is normally the external port plus 100.
