It should work with any serial device your OS knows about. You can specify
it by name or use the [devices{ message to get a list of what's available
on your machine. (And dont't forget to set the correct baud rate)

I plan to use RJ-45, but not sure if the comport external can handle it.
Do you mean RS485 hardware or RJ45 connector? RS485 should work the same as
an ordinary serial port, except for the bus direction signal, which has to
come from somewhere.

E.g. a message [02h    00h    00h    00h    00h    02h( could turn on a

You would just send [2 0 0 0 0 2{ in that case, since Pd doesn't interpret
hexadecimal notation.


Any hints are welcome.
