You should talk to the people who created it - they should provide technical support and will know more about their product than we will. If they don't, then find another supplier and demand your money back!

The actual communications is the easy bit - the SerialPort class[^] is designed to do that - but you need to know exactly what the equipment expects to receive, and what it will transmit as a response. This varies from machine to machine; there is no one standard to cover it.

I need to use ASTM Protocol as Communication Protocol and Half Duplex as Communication Method.SO What Port i should go with ?? is it Serial Port or any else?
As you mention on link it should be Serial Port.

Hi Rahul, I have in the same situation now when I need to figure out ASTM protocol to connect Roche Cobas E411 to communicate with the server. If you already figure it out? Could you please share with me the initial process? I don't know where to start now. Do you have emulator for the machine?
