Code snippets? Are you using the correct port? More details would have
been nice. Cygwin serial port setting commands emulate Linux, so you
should use on "/dev/ttyS0" and not on "COM1".
Also, from the command line, you can use "stty -f /dev/ttyS0" to read and
set the settings of your port, rather than relying on hyperterm.
Life is short - so eat dessert first!
