cant find comm ports on cfp 2120

HI I have MAX version 4, I can detect my relay cars, AIO and thermocouple card, but when searching for the comm ports it times out, any ideas?
 
I have labview 7,
 
anyone have any ideas I can try? I can run my VI's no problem talking to the cards, but no luck with the serial ports.
 
Many thanks
 
Chris

Hi Chris,

From MAX, I don't think you can detect the COM ports on the cFP controller. They can be accessed, AFAIK, only from the VIs on the controller itself.

I was getting confused that u could Add a comm resource but all that is a way to communicate to the Fieldpoint, not to access its comms.

Chris.
