I am running cygwin on my laptop computer. I have the latest SMSTools
installed and built using cygwim gcc.
When I execute SMSTools (a SMS server) it fails when trying to access the
com1 port with..
"permission denied> /dev/com1"
Now SMSTools say you should refer to this port as /dev/com1 and not as
I have disenabled everything I can think of to make sure there are no
conflicts on the com1 port.
I have tried chmod the port but have failed to get it to work.
