FOR OPEN PORT USING:

Dim MSCOM As AxMSCommLib.AxMSComm
  MSCOM._CommPort = 1
        MSCOM.Settings = "38400,N,8,1"
        MSCOM.InputLen = 0
         MSCOM.PortOpen = True
        MSCOM.Enabled = True
        Timer1.Enabled = True

For get data do you need put a TIMER:

Private Sub Timer1_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick

        Dim MSCOM As AxMSCommLib.AxMSComm
        Dim datA As Object = MSCOM.Input
        rt.Text = rt.Text & datA

IF you need get some data not all data:

     Dim MSCOM As AxMSCommLib.AxMSComm
        Dim datA As Object = MSCOM.Input
        rt.Text = rt.Text & datA

'''''' the next linea indicate if the data contain keywork Password add the result in a textbox.

        If InStr(datos, "Password:") > 0 Then
rt.Text = rt.Text & datA
                    End If

If you need send data:

 MSCOM.Output = "Hello How Are ?"
            MSCOM.Output = (vbCrLf)

comenary:
(vbCrLf) =  ENTER KEY.

Hi,

Thank you for your reply. However MSComm32.ocx is not delivered with Visual Studio, I am using VB.NET. Please take a look this URL  http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/richard_grier/NETCommOCX.htm

Code is quite similar with MSCOMM

        AxNETComm1.CommPort = 1
        AxNETComm1.PortOpen = True
        AxNETComm1.RThreshold = 1
        AxNETComm1.set_Output("Hello" & vbCr)

I have sucess to sent text to our Making System via RS203 with this code.

MSCOM.Output = "Hello How Are ?"
            MSCOM.Output = (vbCrLf)

The output only display in frist line -> Hello How Are ?

Do you know how do I sent a 2nd text to 2nd line?

example output:
Hello How Are You? -> 1st line in system screen
I am fine.  -> 2nd line in system screen

I have tried WriteLine but got error! Please help. Thanks
