hi
Actually I have given final touch to my application build in VB.Net 2005 in which we give an interface through a card like NIC(Network Interface Card) to PC and Rubber Testing Machine but the problem is that it is costly for us now we wish to remove that type of card interface and wish to give the interface through the Serial Mouse Port pl tell me anyone is it possible or not if possible then how ..

thanks n regards

Serial Mouse Port?

I think you mean USB or Serial Port, both of which you can handle in the same way using the SerialPort class.

Be aware though, that this means two things:
1) You will no longer have multi-drop. I.e. One machine, one port. You cannot connect two or more machines to a single port in the same way that you can with a network.
2) You will have to provide the full communications system yourself - Sockets and so forth are very, very unlikely to work. This will mean major changes in the software for your PC and machine.
