If the Mac thinks it's a modem, I'd try using "open file" as Mark 
Waddingham suggested. Specify "modem:" and set the serialControlString. 
He did mention that the drivernames aren't always accurate on OS X.

If that doesn't work, use "open file" with the "/dev/" path. I'm not 
sure which path would work, I guess you'd need to test them all. 
Basically the one that works in Terminal should work in LiveCode.

Did you try talking to it in Terminal? Does that work?
