I'm assuming that you're referring to the 8051 microcontroller. If so, this should be pretty simple. Isn't this just hooked up to a serial interface, i.e. the MAX-232 which takes your 0-5 and converts to the 232 spec? If so, I would have expected that you could hook it up to a terminal emulator, set the baud/parity correctly and watch the output. Windows comes with hyperterminal which should serve your purposes.

Not really confident enough to call this an answer without more detail.
