Have you and @xalderaanx tried seeing if the virtual COM port appears in device manager (under COM & LPT, not USB) when you have the adapter plugged in?never had any luck here trying using a Rs232 usb m8
in the end got a old laptop to connect

Ah, have they used DTE pinout on the boxes? There was a whole industry built on serial converters and breakout boxes.in addition to your usb to rs232 cable, you'll need a null modem cable.
pinouts on a null modem cable are diffrent from an rs232 cable, but both look identical.
Serial stuff can be a nightmare, I had an interesting time getting an OEM serial printer working for someone.i have no idea lol, but i know they need null mode cables, pins 2/3 and 7/ 8 and are crossed over to create the handshake.
same as the kryptviews..
aye glad their moving away from it, getting a usb to serial cable is a nightmare, you dunno if the converters faulty, cables dodgy or if the driver has installed correctly.Serial stuff can be a nightmare, I had an interesting time getting an OEM serial printer working for someone.
Box designers could have just swapped these pins so a serial cable or adapter could have been used directly.
Do boxes have (pins) male plugs? They probably shouldn't but I bet it was done for cost saving.aye glad their moving away from it, getting a usb to serial cable is a nightmare, you dunno if the converters faulty, cables dodgy or if the driver has installed correctly.
one of my work m8's, kindly donated a PC to me which is old enough to have a rs232 port...
half the battle not fiddling around with converters and drivers..
