I'm new to Arduino and am working on a number of ESP8266 devices. One of the devices is a web server and 3 of them are web clients.
I can open 4 instances of Arduino development environment (1.8.2) but hoped I could also have 4 serial monitors to check the debug output of all the devices independently.
The problem is that if I set instance 1 to COM20, all of the other instances change to COM20. If I set any instance to COM21, all change to COM21.
Is there a procedure I could follow to run 4 (or more) instances and have 4 (or more) instances of the serial port monitor?
I hope this isn't a duplication, but I did search the site for this issue, but can't find it.
Thanks for reading....
