JSI Tip 5276. How can I change COM port mapping in a Windows 2000 Terminal Services session?

If you are using a MS-DOS program in a Terminal Services session, you may need to change the serial COM port mapping.

You can use the change port command, which can change COM port mapping for the current session. The syntax is:

CHANGE PORT \[portx=porty | /D portx | /QUERY\]

  portx=porty  Map port x to port y.
  /D portx     Delete mapping for port x.
  /QUERY       Display current mapping ports.
