Hi guys

The new PC's (Dell) that our company is getting do not have Serial (or Parallel) ports on them any more, just USB's. This is OK in most cases but we have some equipement that can only use a serial connection, particularly Symbol LDT BarCode scanners and their cradles. I have bought a USB serial converter but I cannot get it to connect. I have allocated it to com2 (and 3,4 etc) in the 'device manager', and I have altered the ini file for the cradle, but no joy. Are there any commands that I can run to test the connection?

Regards
Josco
