Comm ports of a Digi Serial Card appear to be available in Windows 95/98/ME, but will not respond in HyperTerminal

Symptom:

Ports appear to be available to HyperTerminal, but when attempting to access the ports there is no response.

 

Cause:

The direct to COM options in HyperTerminal are only for ports using standard I/O and IRQ.

 

Solutions:

  • Install a modem on the port you wish to access, then use HyperTerminal to select the modem rather than the direct to COM option.
  • Use the tty.exe application to access the Digi ports.
