Has anyone managed to get Grinder to recognize handsets that are connected to anything but the four COM settings seemingly hard-coded in the Grinder?

It always shows COM1, COM2, COM5 and COM6 only. Sadly the handset I need to grind right now is on COM7 and there seems to be no way to get access to it.

I really have no time or patience to uninstall and re-install my drivers in particular orders just to get a particular tool to work. So, has anyone managed?

In Win2K:
Control Panel -> System -> Device Manager -> Right click on COM7 under Ports -> Properties -> Port Settings Tab -> Advanced... -> set COM port # to 5 or 6.
Note that, if Device Manager already shows both COM 5 and 6, you'll need to delete one of them before you can reassign.
It is a pain that the Grinder cannot dynamically enumerate COM ports.

Thanks for the tip, Murray, but sadly it didn't help.
I'm running USB devices and they do not appear in the ports listing in the device manager. They show up in the USB manger but there you can't assign a port which it is associated with.
Grrrr.... :(

Open up the "modem" that appears in your device manager and change it from there. I change all my phones to COM1 once for each USB port on my PC and then I don't have to deal with it ever again.

Wow! Very cool! You are right. It's hidden under modems...
Sweet! Thanks for that tip. This is Gold!

Hi,
I too am facing the same problem now. In my PC device manager listing, there is no "modem" at all.
I changed the COM port properties as Murray said, but couldn't get it working.
Any other solution possible ?
TIA.
