No, that's confusing, and it is /not/ what the current code does.
I think it should be, for Windows:
127.127.20.0 => invalid
127.127.20.1 => COM1
127.127.20.4 => COM4
127.127.20.256 => sorry, COM256 not supported
and that is what the current code does.
If your C code (I don't find C easy to read) achieves that, fine.
