I am using the ESP8266 NODEMCU. I am aware that the CH341 on the NodeMCU is bridged to the serial pins GPIO3(Rx) and GPIO1(Tx). Hence, any data send on Rx and Tx is also visible on the serial monitor.
I need to interface MAX485 TTL-to-RS485 to the ESP8266 on different serial pins (other than GPIO3 and GPIO1).
Is there a way to configure other pins as Rx and Tx?
Please suggest any other ways to achieve this.
EDIT-1: I need to use two serial ports at the same time (one with the CH341 and another with TTL-to-RS485). Please help with this.
