The only limit you face for number of serial ports is your machine's ability to comply with the requirements for using Advanced
Computer Power Interface (ACPI) with XP.

Hi pio,

We have debugger machines here that use serial ports for debugging other
machines. Some of these machines have a couple hunderd COM ports on them.
Here is one product we use. We can get a lot of ports per machine by running
multiple cards and daisychaining multiple concentrators.
