Two PC's Talking using COM port?
I have a program which runs on Windows(console) and what it is used for is to program a device. The device uses programable Memory which is programmed VIA a rs232 cable.
That software is very un-userfriendly so i want to re write the software for ease of use.
What i am missing is the commands i need to send to the device in order to tell it what i want it to do.
So to recap this is what i have....
LapTop (With Software) -----RS232-------> Device
I Have hooked up the laptop to my desktop and tryed to view the datta being sent via MSCOMM
The laptop send data to my desktop but then it waits for me to respond befor it will send any more data.
How can i figure out what commands the software is sending so i can rewrite my own software to send those same commands.
Note i did not write the original software nor did i make the device. If your curious the device is a Data Aquisition System. Basicly it Aquires Data from other devices and processes it into a file. but i dont think this information is needed
