We're doing a project where we need serial to serial communiction. Unfortunately, my DELL laptop did not come with a serial, only usb and cat 5.
I have an alom converter/connection which allows a cat 5 to be plugged in on one side, and its a serial on the other side. The communication over the cable then becomes serial.
BUT, the cat 5 is always plugged into the "A Lom" port (a cat 5 that has serial protocol).
Is there any way to configure my cat 5 port to act like the A Lom port and make it think that its a serial connection?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I'm using Windows XP.
