Hallo Robin, > Are there (and if so, can you provide URLs, etc.) Windows > based programs that will analyze/sniff a COM: port and provide > a nice hex dump log of everything that has gone in and out? I don't know any. But the problem with Windows is that cannot access the hardware in a direct way; you'll need DLL's to do the job. And I haven't the slightest idea how to do this. (If any one has some info about the basics of it, please) This is one of the reasons I still work with DOS as long as HW is involved. In that case you can access the UART's directly using C or Pascal. AFAIK you won't have problems accessing the HW using Linux and C. At this moment I haven't any info at hand but at home I have a small Pascal program I use to search/test a COM-port. This includes sending/receiving data. Using this one it should be not a problem writing a sniffer in the language you prefer. > It must be Windows based as that's what the software included > with these gadgets works with. Why? RS232 is OS independent, or do I miss a point? Groetjes, Ruud http://home.hccnet.nl/g.baltissen/index.htm - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
