MSComm handshaking?

 MSComm handshaking?

I am using the MSComm control with VB4 Pro, writing a small app which
transmits files to a *VERY* dense serial device. The other end supports
software handshaking well, and works in manual tests transmitting data
with a terminal program.

My problem comes in using my app, which does not respect the XON/XOFF
handshaking, causing lost data. I have the Handshaking property set on
the MSComm control, but further reading of the on-line help indicates
that the property only works for incoming data.

Is this the case? I can attempt more manual control of hardware
handshaking instead, but that would involve reconfiguring devices which
are several hundred km away. Naturally, I'd rather just change the
program here.
