  bilko 20:24 03 Feb 2011

I currently use an old laptop for work which has a serial port on it and have the chance to get a newer machine which has no serial port. The applications I use uses the serial port. how can I get the usb on the new machine to communicate using a usb to serial lead?

Be very careful as these devices do not work for DOS based programs.

I already have the lead but cannot get communications to work.Do I need a driver?
