            I am not sure it this would help but.
            If you do (you might have to be root)

            $ cat /dev/ttyS0

            This will read your first serial port (ttyS1 for second port), and
    display what is at the com port.
            You might have to use stty to set you communication parameter such
            as baud rate etc, do man stty

            Your serial port is just a file to the os. So with some scripting
    (perl, python) you might be able to read something from a port, date stamp
    it and write it to a file.

            Just a thought .
