multiple POS software, one device

Can multiple POS software on the same machine communicate to a Clover device using the Clover Connector at the same time?

The Remote-Pay-SDKs are built on the idea that there is a 1-to-1 relationship between a POS and a Clover device. This entails having one physical Clover Connector object open throughout the day. Clover will only support this type of architecture.

I might add that, due to limitations of the POS I was integrating to, I had to write my CloverConnector implementation as a Middleware "service" that runs on each client which listens for requests from the POS application, interacts with the device, and then sends responses back to the POS... In theory, the "service" could listen for several POS applications simultaneously, though since it can only handle one request at a time, you'd probably need to include some sort of queueing of requests.
