Hi Tom,

Have a look at my SerialTest stack at
I have altered it recently so that it works with OS X but I have only 
tried it with a Keyspan adapter. If your device shows up in driverNames 
then it will most probably work. My stack will set the 
serialControlString for you (or at least the most important parts of 
it) and handles sending & receiving with various end-of-line 
indicators. See if it works, then poke around in the scripts to see 
what is happening. I think it is reasonably well commented :-)
