Default settings for COM ports.
Synopsis
[ComPorts]    COMn=a;b
Description
The parameters COMn apply to Windows platforms only. These parameters define the default settings for COM ports. This enables remote logins to Caché through locally connected or modem connected serial ports.
The number n refers to the physical com port number. If the [ComPorts] section contains enough entries, n may have multiple digits.
Each COMn entry provides two semicolon-separated values that define the default settings for COM port number n. From left to right:
Examples
The following example of a [ComPorts] section shows how spaces can be used as values within the COM port control parameter:
[ComPorts]
COM1=       ;19200
The first example uses all defaults for the COM port control parameters, by providing seven spaces before the semicolon separator. The meaning is: No change to modem control, no change to bit size, no change to parity setting, no change to stop bit setting, no change to Flow control, no change to DTR state, no change to $ZA error reporting.
[ComPorts]
COM2=1801X11;19200
The second example provides a value of 1801X11 for the COM port control parameters. The meaning is: Use modem control, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, use Xon/Xoff flow control, enable DTR, enable $ZA error reporting.
