View Full Version : Changing Stamp com port to communicate with another device

Hi, After downloading a programme toaBs2 on com port 1, I would like the programme to be able to communicate using the serial cable with a device on my PC which uses com port 9. How do I do this please ?

Certainly it's not the same physical port ... what you need to do is move the connection from one port to the other. I was developing a project that had this requirement once and I found that using a serial switch box simplified things.

If you are trying to communicate from the BASIC Stamp to the PC on com 1to COM 9 you'll need to a write program (PC software) to send the data between COM 1 and COM 9. This would have to be written in C or Visual Basic.
