Serial port deployment

03 June 2012 - 10:17 PM


after many experiments I am still not able to deploy application over serial port to the Netduino.
There in MFDeploy it is possible to choose Serial/COM3, but after click to the Ping button the reponse is: "Pinging... Error: No response from device" or "Pinging... NoConnection". I know, that the whole setup (virtual machine and usb converter) could be a complication, but why.
I attached pictures, how it is connected to the PC. Did I connect it properly?
What else should I check and investigate?
Is there something other, that has to be done before the deployment/debug over serial port can be done?

One more note: Since 4.2 firmware with this setup I describe next it is not possible to debug over USB and system crashes when cabel is disconnected, so I had to switch back to the 4.1 fw.

Device: Netduino rev. B
Firmware: NetduinoFirmware_v4.1.1.0_Beta1 and Netduino_v4.1.1_beta1_CW.NETMF.OneWire-
USB to serial port converter: PremiumCord USB To RS232 Cable
Netduino switched to serial deployment following this steps: http://forums.netdui...b-and-com1com2/
COM port tested: and
Netduino's COM1 connection: Netduino's pin D1(TX) to RS232's pin 3(RX), Netduino's pin D0(RX) to RS232's pin 2(TX).

Other setup:
VirtualBox: 4.1.16 r78094
Host OS: Debian Squeeze (without any driver to the USB2Serial installed - but the test in guest passed).
Guest OSes tested: Windows XP 32bit SP3 or Windows 7 Enterprise 32bit

Thanks for any help.
