You may want to try a USB to RS232 adapter to see if it's the on-board COM port that's malfunctioning or if something else is happening. Currently, it looks like the on-board port can't communicate.

I have it working now! I remembered I had a USB to Serial adapter in my laptop bag and I tried that and voila, it worked over COM4. There is something not working with the motherboard-based COM ports, I think. It occurred to me because on the older working server, PageGate uses the COM port through an additional PCI card and not on the system's on-board COM port.

I'll test a bit longer but I think this will work. I suppose I could get a PCI COM port card and try that as well.

Now onto the other task I need to solve.. Getting a Version 8 virtual server to work over a LanTronix IP to Serial device. That is ultimately where I want to go with all of this...
