The XBees replace wires. The PC doesn't know that the device connected to the PC doesn't have any wires attached to it.

So, your approach doesn't depend on wires vs. wireless.

paul i think u misread the question... what i want is that instead of x-ctu displaying the incoming data, the vb interface/module could display the data
i.e i want the vb app to read data from the comm port from which the xbee sends to computer. problem is that since that comm port is continuously in use how do i redirect that stream of info to vb app??

Well, I think you miswrote it, so we're even.

So, what's the problem?

It is only "continuously in use" if you have some other application reading that serial port. You can only have one application connected to the serial port. You must close X-CTU and/or the Serial Monitor application to allow the VB application to open the serial port.
