I need to know what is the sharp boud rate that i get on the comm hardware when configuring it to 57600 bps. in the MSDN help its look like the value that is available on this case is 56000, but trying to set a different value else then 57600 or 56000 is forbidden, so maybe its setting the port to 57600 despite what the MSDN tells.

One question that I often field is, "What speeds does MSComm support." The XMComm control, like MSComm32.ocx that comes with VB5 or later supports speeds up to 115200 bps. If you use either with a modem, make sure that you use a speed that is actually supported by the modem's serial port. These speeds are: 300, 1200, 2400, 9600, 19200, 38400, 57600, and 115200 bps. Do not attempt to use a speed like 28800 or 33600 bps. While the modem may connect at this speed, it CANNOT set its serial port to this speed. Instead, select a higher speed than the actual connect speed. 57600 or 115200 bps usually are best. Enable modem error correction and data compression, of course.
