Hi jan.
I have software which works with a device via RS-232 or USB. I want to know if there is anyway to send data to software
without the device ?( i mean to simulate cable transferring or something like that).

See the virtual serial port tools under Other Tools here:

Thanks Jan.
How about USB ports Jan? Is there any virtual USB port?

It depends on what USB device you want to emulate.

A device that can connect via RS-232 or USB probably has a USB/serial adapter on board. If so, the application accesses the device as a COM port, the same as if it were a true serial port. So you could emulate it with a virtual serial port.
