your UNO can't output RS232 without additional hardware.
I am not sure what type of serial communication it is, but I know I only need a Tx, Rx and a ground from my device to my computer.I used a jumper to connect the reset and the ground pin together as suggested and the Rx light flashed when I send the board some text from HyperTerminal, but I was not seeing any text being sent from the board to the computer... I will not have much time to works on this for a few days, so I might just break down and buy a Serial-to-USB adapter...Thank you for the help!!
