Ok, now I've understand!
I'm sorry but it's my first approach to asio!

Yes, this is exactly what I have to do.
I will looking into the tutorials!!

Just one last thing..

I've tried to to something like this (where signal_OnData is a signal):

void SerialPort::reading()
  .... data available...
  //signal_OnData(); boost::bind(&SerialPort::Post_OnData, this) );

void SerialPort::Post_OnData()

but the SerialPort::Post_OnData is not called, is this my design wrong?

Thanks very mutch for your support!!!
