Well... here's a wild thought (which may or may not work)...

When setting the port for the Serial control itself, try this:

Serial1.SerialPort = System.SerialPort( "/dev/theParallelPort" )


It may work, it may not (you obviously need to replace theParallelPort with the proper device).

I tried your suggestion, but with not such luck. Thanks for the suggestion though.
