RE: Cannot connect to remote target via serial port

Dave is right, /dev/comX works fine. And it is indeed not fixed in 6.1.

  No, /dev/comX should be fine for cygwin (unless I've missed a recent
change and the docs haven't yet been updated, but I don't think that's
happened), and if it isn't, it's a cygwin bug.

"Cygwin also has several Windows-specific devices: /dev/comX (the serial
ports, starting with COM1 which is the same as ttyS0)"

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
