Plink Serial Connection
I'm trying to connect to a cooling unit via RS232. I've managed to do so in PuTTY perfectly fine, and I'm now trying to do the same in Plink, but I can't get it to work. I don't have much command line experience, so I might be doing something wrong.

"c:\tools\PuTTY\plink.exe -serial COM1 -sercfg 9600,8,n,1,N"

I get the response:
"Unable to open connection:
Unable to open serial port"

The cooling unit has no flow control, no parity, is 9600 Baud, 8 data bits and 1 stop bit, so as far as I can tell I'm putting the right info in.

Conversely, if I run plink with "-load settings", plink appears to run, but doesn't seem to transmit any of my commands.
