[IronPython] Accessing Serial Port from IronPython driven Webpage

  Thanks Vernon

I did look at Pyserial, but then I realized that with IronPython I could 
just use System.IO.Ports.SerialPort to do it all anyway... then it 
seemed pointless to use PySerial if the capability is already available 
in IronPython.  It works fine on Mono too, and I have run successful 
tests in Linux Juanty (which my PlugPC runs).  The problem I have now is 
not talking to the serial port per se... it is doing it from within a 
web browser, which as I understand it is a security issue.  The browser 
security policy just won't give me access to the serial port whatever 
library I might be using.  The link I posted earlier shows how to 
overcome the security restrictions in C# - I just don't know how to 
translate this into an IronPython class :-(

Bye for now, Kurt
