Testing COM Ports
Posted on 2004-04-21
I have a computer which has an application complaining that it cannot communicate with COM port 1.
the message is something like
Error contacting COM PORT 1
How can i check that the COM is working properly in Windows ( this is a Windows XP comptuer ). The COM has worked fine before, this must be a new problem.
Is there any commands i can send to the COM port or software which i can use to test it.
I am trouble shooting this remotely via remote desktop, so if possible any suggestions which i can do over remote desktop.
Thank you !
