I am trying to use a programme to monitor a central heating system which wants to use an ethernet adapter for data over our LAN. It asks me to map a comm port using Com Port over TCP/IP. As I' can not see any Comm ports in Device manager on my Dell XPS420 using Win 7 Pro
so I have mapped Comm 1 2 and 4 with the Adapters IP address. Can ping adapter fine.
However, in the monitoring software it asks which Comm port I am using, I don't know!
So, should I see Comm ports in Win 7 and if so as I don't how do I install one? Hopefuly that will resolve matters?
