fieldpoint fp-2210 serial

I have a Compact Fieldpoint cPF-2210. On the base unit there are two RS-232 ports available. Is it possible to communicate to an external device over RS-232 with these ports? I installed NI-VISA Server 5.3.0. But how can I create a program that can run on the fieldpoint and use the RS-232 for communication?  I could not find any resources on this. Also not about addressing the port from a vi running on the computer.

 

I did find this page but I can't find the serial port in MAX

Yes, you can use those ports.

 

You need to write the VI that will run on the compact fieldpoint controller that will use VISA to communicate with the serial port.  MAX will not show you serial ports on a controller.
