Most computers still come equipped with dial up modems that access the computer's serial port. Disable the modem in the control panel, and you will be able to use the serial port for data access.
For the last 6 days I have been trying to download some files from my laptop(Dell WIN XP) to my rec. through the serial port (COM1) using a serial cable but it keep saying '' Can't open serial port! Access Denied! '' So I check the port in the BIOS it's enabled and works fine then I tried to check connectivity on the port by using the ''Hyper Terminal'' it said '' Another program is using this port! Try again after it's done! '' So I tried to found which program is using this port, I could not.
Please help! Any ideas ; How to open this port, or how to found which program is using it...
Who ever gonna help me and give me the right solution I'll name him the HERO of this forum, and thank you!
