I have a .dll file that gives you direct input and output to any port on your computer. You just have to declare the file, and after that, it is very simple. This file (which is totally free) is not on the web, so I would have to email it to you. If you are interested, you can write to me at the email address below. In my mind, this is the best way to do it, as you cannot write directly to the ports and other way in VB. You can email me at d.taylor@clear.net.nz
