I'm using a win7 machine with PuTTY.
I'm using the default connection options according to the FOS admin guide v710:
Serial Line: COM1
Data bits: 8
Stop bits: 1
Flow Control: none
and for some reason, I still get the PuTTY error message "Unable to open connection to COM1, Unable to open serial port"
I'm using a serial to RJ-45 cable to connect.

Attaching a doc that talks about some steps to troubleshoot serial port connections. This is straight from install guide. You may try these steps and see if it works.

Found out that I really needed to use a serial-to-serial cable connection. I ended up splicing 2 cables into one because I needed a female end on both ends and I only had 2 male/female ends.
Thanks for the help all!
