Looking for free serial port splitting software

I'm looking for software that can take my serial (usb to serial) GPS dongle and create some cloned com ports so I can use multiple applications with a single receiver. Any help appreciated Happy

They need hardware for buffering and a way to ID the port, IRQ, etc. You can't just splice in extra wiring and use software to sort out the rest.
