changing port name of a serial port
- Ihave now bought the Ibm Thinkpad 600X mentioned in an earlier thread, and
love it. However, as is always the case, all is not perfect. I need to
use the serial port to transfer data to an old-fashioned pda. The thinkpad
has a com port, one of my criteria for buying the laptop, but the port is
designated as comm5. I have Hyperterminal Private Edition and TeraTerm
Pro, but both those terminal programs only support as high as comm4. Can
anybody suggest a workaround which will make the comm port accessible? I'm
using Win98 and have no other reason to put a bigger, slower operating
system on here.
Thanks in advance.
