Thanks! Meilleurs vouex à toi également !

>from ceserial import Serial
>s = Serial("COM6:") # "COM6" only will not work, since it is based on the CreateFileW WinCE API function

Is it possible to use this syntax:

    s = Serial(5)

(0 = COM1, so 5 = COM6) ?

>s.open() # This will pop a dialog allowing to choose which bt device to connect

No way to automatically connect to a specific bt device?

># Then regular serial code
>Hope it helps,

Yes :o) If it is as simple as you described, I'll go this way and use bt
instead of wired serial port...
