You need to more precise with question to get a right answer. we cant see your code or read your mind so you never expect a clear answer with a vague question. "Instrument sends data" to where? to your PC? If yes how? does the instrument provides any additional drivers to read the data? or any spec how to read its data?

Use a SerialPort[^] instance to monitor the COM port - the link includes an example.

there is nothing to do with serial port because the print server(serial to Ethernet converter) will do this my problem is this instrument will sends the data through it is serial port and this data will be passed through the converter then how could i receive this data.

We can't answer that - we have absolutely no idea what your convert is doing with the data!

You should try Ethernet packet reading frarmeworks. http://pcapdotnet.codeplex.com/ is good choice. however you must know the format of the data you want to read else the output is just binary values for you.
