I have just installed an electronic sign that has a network device attached to it so that you can hit it from any PC.... I have connected to it just fine from one machine... but can not get another machine to connect.  

We are redirecting the comport to com6 port 3001  the port is not or does not appear to be in use.  I have turned the windows firewall off.  there is a firewall in place betwen the network and the world but not between the computer and sign device....

any thoughts or suggestions?

Are you using the same browser on all the computers?

Yes, but there is a program that is used to access the sign... the browser is just the hard way around to do things with it..
