When starting the nettsr the command line looks like this: (from the manual)

nettsr my_ip_addr [[[[ sw_int ] broadcast_mask ] broadcast_port ] send_to_ip]

i.e. nettsr 100 9870

So this 100 means it will use com4,  99 is for com3, 98 is for com2, 97 is
for com1.. so probably 
101 will be for the com5...

I have this set up with 5 PCs and it works great... thanks to K1TTT for the
