well depends on what the poster means by "com" ports

by CG IT In reply to What!!!???

most computers these days don't have "serial" ports that tie in to "com" ports. USB has taken over that.

But if the poster means the firewall, then there are probably 90 ports listed in the firewall rules as default allow rules. opening a port through the firewall for "com" [communications] is simple.

Since this is a bluetooth device, and assuming it's a USB PnP device, then windows should automatically create a rule when the software is installed as the software will tell windows this is a trusted program.
