Using Bome Virtual Ports externally

I am trying to do some troubleshooting and debugging of my serial devices and looking to use BMT virtual ports with Hairless MIDI-Serial http://projectgus.github.io/hairless-midiserial/. Upon trying to connect the ports I receive the error "Failed to open MIDI in port: RtMidiIn::openPort: error creating Windows MM Midi input port."

It appears that the Midi Out port will connect properly, but connecting the midi In port shows the error and data will not pass. Are these ports only to be used with Midi Translator or can they be used externally, as I am trying to do? Also, is there a solution for the error message I am seeing, or a specific way to connect these ports with BMT virtual ports?

Hi ibanman

Been a while :)

MT Pro MIDI IN ports can ONLY be connected to MT Pro. If you need to troubleshoot and are on a PC I'd check MIDI Yoke for a free virtual option.
