from php manual (not my code):

<?php
// HOW TO USE PHP TO WRITE TO YOUR SERIAL PORT: TWO METHODS
$serproxy=true;
if ($serproxy) {
   // Use this code in conjunction with SERPROXY.EXE
   // (http://www.lspace.nildram.co.uk/freeware.html)
   // which converts a Serial stream to a TCP/IP stream
   $fp = fsockopen ("localhost", 5331, $errno, $errstr, 30);
   if (!$fp) {
       echo "$errstr ($errno)";
   } else {
       $e = chr(27);
       $string  = $e . "A" . $e . "H300";
       $string .= $e . "V100" . $e . "XL1SATO";
       $string .= $e . "Q1" . $e . "Z";
       echo $string;
       fputs ($fp, $string );
       fclose ($fp);
   }
} elseif ($com1) {
   // Use this code to write directly to the COM1 serial port
   // First, you want to set the mode of the port. You need to set
   // it only once; it will remain the same until you reboot.
   // Note: the backticks on the following line will execute the
   // DOS 'mode' command from within PHP
   `mode com1: BAUD=9600 PARITY=N data=8 stop=1 xon=off`;
   $fp = fopen ("COM1:", "w+");
   if (!$fp) {
       echo "Uh-oh. Port not opened.";
   } else {
       $e = chr(27);
       $string  = $e . "A" . $e . "H300";
       $string .= $e . "V100" . $e . "XL1SATO";
       $string .= $e . "Q1" . $e . "Z";
       echo $string;
       fputs ($fp, $string );
       fclose ($fp);
   }
}
?>
