Default DSM Datalogging PORT question

I downloaded the PALM OS emulator off of the VFAQ and bought a cable that goes from the diagnostic port to DB9 connector. Then I connected it to a DB25 to USB so I can plug it into my laptop. Questions is in the properties on MMCD (datalogging program) where you change the port it has only COM3 (whats this?) and TCP/IP. Is there a way to connect the USB port I have plugged in as a serial port w/ the TCP/IP or add the port somehow?

It kinda depends on the adapters and drivers. I use a usb to db9 converter to datalog my lm-1 on my evo, and there a few things that can screw with the connection. One is the driver if it's the proper one, two is if the laptop has a high power or low power usb port (and also if it's 1.1 or 2.0), and 3 is if the laptop has the usb ports set to a "hibernate" mode where it automatically shuts them off if no signal or current draw is detected (this can be changed in the "usb properties" menu in XP). The laptop must recognize the usb device as a usb to serial device in order for it to work right and will show up in the hardware menu in the control panel.
