NT: COM 3&4 available somehow ?
Posted on 2000-05-02
Running NT4 on an unknown MB.
I wondered if there's the possibility to have COM3 and 4 available on that machine ?
I saw some machines with only two COM plugs (1 & 2) but with 4 COM ports listed under NT.
I quite sure they didn't have a multi I/O card installed.
Is there a way to activate COM 3 & 4 so I can get our internal modem to work ?
I don't use COM1 or 2 but this stupid thing needs to have COM 3 or 4 available.
Maybe it would be helpful to fiddle around in machine's BIOS or in NT itself ?
In other words, without having a multi /IO card installed, is there a way to have COM 1-4 available under NT without any conflicts or maybe to change COM 1+2 to COM3+4 ?
If you need further details, let me know...
