  2. Enter your login credentials.
  3. Navigate to Setup > Serial Port and expand the Basic Settings section.
  4. Choose COM1/ RS485#1 - Protocol or COM4/ RS485#2 - Protocol from the drop-down list box and select None to disable the port.
  5. Click Apply. When prompted, click Yes to save the changes.
