    Hi,

    Yes, of course VB6 programs do it using Windows API (CreateFile/ReadFile/WriteFile) or a 3rd party ActiveX component.

    VB6 comes with a serial comm component called MSComm
    Simply add it to the tool box then place it on your form

    See the online help for info on how to use it or do a quick web search, tons of examples out there.

    The MSComm control provides serial communications for your application by allowing the transmission and reception of data through a serial port.
