Communicating with two ports on MScomm

RivKin asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-15

I'm trying to accomplish something very simple yet for some reason with no success.

I need an application to communicate with two serial ports (com) via RS232.

I have a serial cable and also I tried making one my self (pin 2,3 <---> pin 3,2).

I mad a test using HyperTerminal and it worked: after creating two sessions whit two deferent ports,  when  I'm writing something in one window, it appears on the other.

Now when I try to do something as simple as that with Mscomm, VC++ its not working' I get nothing!

Any idea? Please I'm going crazy here!
