When I did data communications programming as my job, my favourite tool was the HP 4951A protocol analyzer -- it would tell you anything about everything that was going on over a serial communications channel.

You probably don't have one of those .. you might be able to get a break-out box which at least would tell you if there is some flow control stuff going on. Alternatively, look for breakout box software on Google -- I'd pass you some links but either Google is slow or my connection is tired right now. Highly recommended.

Based on what little information is available, I expect it's going to be some type of flow control problem -- is there any way you can set up the serial port or the software talking to the port to enable, disable or automate the flow control?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
