Does the Serial port dongle require the installation of specific drivers?


Serial port keys communicate with the application using standard RS232C protocols, so no driver software is required. The API calls used for serial devices use the same parameters and return the same values as those for USB or Parallel devices. However, since the application communicates directly with the key, the commands are passed using a string of serial characters beginning with the command codes FS (0x1C), SUB (0x1A), FS (0x1C), SUB (0x1A), which tell the key that the following information should be processed by the key rather than passed through.
