Since with serial devices all you are changing is the address ( 9,10, whatever ) I'd pretty much expect this to work. I doubt that VEE cares or even knows that 9 and 10 are different physical interfaces.

You would of course need to set up the interfaces in the IOLIB's and I suppose you may need to create dummy instruments in the instrument manager so that it also understands the interfaces, but otherwise I'd expect this to work.
