I am trying to read the data from serial port using python 2.5 with 
ceserial module on windows CE 5.0. When i am trying to run, it is get 
connected to port, but it is not reading the data from the port.Below is 
my code -

from time import sleep
import ceserial

ser = 

print("connected to: " + ser.portstr)

#data = ''
while True:
    data = ser.read(9999)
    if len(data) > 0:
        print 'Got:', data
    #print 'not blocked'
