WinDbg using a USB to serial port/null modem

Has anyone used WinDbg on a USB to serial installation? I am having problems
in geting the Belkin USB serial adapter to install and then of course cannot
connect to the kernel debugger.

This might work from the host machine, but you are not trying to do this
on the target, are you?

Oh no. The target is 9 pin serial. The host is going to a Belkin USB serial
adapter.

Before you go any further I would make sure using this USB adapter you
could use HyperTerminal to establish a connection between two machines.

It’s not going to work with the 'Bag until you solve the com port problems.
You say that you are installing the USB driver, then installing the
hardware. Why not install the hardware and wait for it to ask you for a
disk?

I used one of those a couple of years ago with Win2K, though I think it was
a D-Link, not a Belkin. The D-Link worked just fine for me. But I just
took the usual plug in and wait approach.

Dave,

Good thought. However, it appears that the root problem was a 2000 driver
running under XP. I resolved the problem by downloading the XP drivers from
the Belkin web site. I didn’t reboot, it didn’t ask for it, but it did then
connect to the WinDbg target. However, the boot probably was needed as the
laptop panicked and crashed shortly after the target connected to WinDbg on
the laptop/XP Pro.

Much oblidged for the assist though.
