My meaning is COM port.
Because the MSCOMM in VB6 cann't open the COM port at 230400. I must write the code in C#.

The .Net framework doesn't provide integral support for serial communications (connecting via COM Ports).  It can however be accomplished using one of a few possible methods. Two possible methods follow:

#1) using the MSCOMM Compent -- Judging by what you wrote, isnt' the solution you needed.

#2) Using PInvoke to access Windows API function. An example of this can be found here: http://www.dotnet247.com/247reference/msgs/16/83976.aspx

If as I suspect the first method doesn't work for you, the second method would, but by the sounds of your situation, I wouldn't reccomend it.   Instead I would reccomend writing an ATL Com component in native C++ due to the fact that you are going to use this in a visual basic application.  When use an assembly as com from VB, the PInvoke layer of the .Net framework is used and creates a bit of a performance loss.  When you use PInvoke to access unmanaged API Function calls, you get a similar loss.  In this case going from Visual Basic to C# to Win32 API, you would be passing through PInvoke twice.  If you wrote an ATL com object in unmanaged c++, you would not take this toll.
