If you are using the command prompt or you are in the DOS prompt, the communication ports in this environment is usually accessible by the program you are using. I mean the program you are using has a direct access to the computer’s communication ports.

But there is another way of accessing the communication ports of the computer using an external command through DOS prompt if you don’t want to use a program and just want to access the ports.

You can use the program “” to view or modify different ports or display setting. This program is an external command and is available in all MS-DOS versions, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows 7.

I’m not sure if this is also available with Windows Vista but you can try searching your drive for this program if you are running this operating system on your computer.
