I am creating virtual serial port driver. Driver in back ground, send/receive data to TCP server.
My question is whether Driver need to take care of Baud Rate, Parity, Stop Bits, Data length which are set by Windows Application which open serial port driver?

    If you aren't driving any real hardware, then of course you don't care about the hardware settings.

    While they can be a no-op in the driver, you still need to successfully complete the requests back to the application. Otherwise, the application will most likely error out and stop working properly.
