Default Remote control problems


I have recently made a remote control via RS232 port, that can be controlled by IgorPlugin. I've successfully tested it on a PC, but what i need to do is to connect it to a laptop. So i've tried two RS232->USB adapters on 3 computers (including a PC) and nothing seems to work. It works only when connected directly to COM port, but does not work via the adapter. COM port settings for adapters match the settings in original COM ports. I've even tested the adapters, by shorting second and third pins to see if loopback works. Everything seemed to work ok.

So does anyone have any ideas on how i could connect this device via an adapter, because i've given up already, don't know what else i could try

Thank you for your thoughts
