In the device manager, click properties on the port, select the "Port
settings" tab, then hit the advanced button. The next screen will show you the
COM # assigned to the port.
Take a look and see what you see

check the ports, and I really don't know what I am looking at. It says that
there are two COM ports, and both are working fine. The back of the computer
onloy has one COM port available for use, which is why I said I don't know
where it is or what is using it. But apparently, this is the one I was using
before the OS replacement. It also shows a single LPT port. But something I
hadn't noticed before is that there are two more COM ports showing: "RIM
Virtual Serial Port v2 (COM3) and RIM Virtual Serial Port v2 (COM4).

Recently, however, I had to upgrade the OS on the computer I have it connected
to by serial cable. Which is the same machine it was connected to before. But
for reasons I can't figure out, the devices are apparently not talking to each
other. WUHU says it opened the serial port OK, but then cites problems with
the clocks not being the same (they are) and corrupt data. I tried
disconnecting the cable and got the same error messages, so it seems that the
connection just isn't there. I am using serial port 2 - can't find serial port
1 (must be used internally?) My computer is a Shuttle, FWIW. I am using
WUHU216_32. Any help available?
