I just got a Decatur SI-2 it communicates via RS232 through a DB9 connector.
So I went out to BestBuy and got a Dynex™ 16" USB PDA/Serial Adapter Cable. Since I couldn't get it to work on my Macbook Pro I have downloaded the driver on a HP.
I was planing on using my Mac and to just type in:
To find the port:
ls -l /dev/tty.*
Then open a screen from there:
screen /dev/tty.usbmodem411 9600,8N1
But since I'm using a pc what do I need to do? Can I use command prompt? How?
