COM PORTS

I use my 6300 with two different programs:  DXLab Suite and N1MM Logger+.  It seems when I assign a com port, either C or P type, to one program, it won't work with the other. I have to create a separate comp port(s) for each program. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong?

Normal COM port behavior is that a COM port can only be opened by one application at a time.  There are exceptions and ways to work around it, but in your case, using SmartSDR CAT to create a separate COM port for each application is the way to go.
