Default UTEC cable vs Presario 2715?

What's the best way to connect the 15 pin female serial port on my laptop computer to the 9 pin female port on the UTEC computer?

Are you sure it is a serial port?

I think the 15 pin female D-type on most computers is the monitor output port.

You are right. It doesn't have a serial port. It has a modem port, an ethernet port, an S-video port, that 15 pin monitor port, a 1394 digital video port, 2 USB ports, keyboard/mouse port, parallel port, and a PC card port. Plus hot swapable rewritable CD and a dedicated DVD player.

Stangely, the quikdock has a serial port, but I don't have a quikdock. That shows that there is at least one way I can do this.

Cripes! If that is the correct word.

I just thought of something, maybe a usb to serial convertor.

You can buy a USB to serial converter. I have tested one on my desktop PC with the UTEC.

Thanks. I found a Keyspan USB Serial Adapter at CompUSA. Very easy plug and play installation with Windows XP.
