The difference is you need different hardware on your port.
Either a port with RS232 like MAX232
see the "diagram" there.
Or a port with RS485 like ADM485
also see "Functional Block Diagram for ADM1485" there
If your port has only a RS232 driver you can convert the electrical signals from RS232 level to RS485 level by using an external adapter like
