Monitor serial and parallel port data from other applications

    I have a need to monitor data that is sent by other programs to the serial
    and parallel port. Basically, I need to create an application like PortMon by
    SysInternals. My application only needs ReadOnly access to the data so that
    it can send it over a TCP connection to another computer.

    I have looked everywhere but have not found any really good explanations of
    how to go about this. I have the DDK but haven't found an example that makes
    sense. Do I need to create a filter driver? Use the ToastMon sample? Is there
    a way to get this stuff through WMI?

    Any help would be appreciated.
