i read this i even used communication example of RS command in this project
Care to share?

Are you saying that the example only showed sending a '3'? Hard to believe but possible.

As for the handshaking, I haven't dealt with that for 20-odd years and I can't remember what does what these days. You could probably get away with tying a couple of lines to active levels or together, the signals in question are CD, DTR and DSR.

But without the access to the proper protocol spec I see little point in carrying on.

  Hi,
  I also had this problem that Arduino serial is not read by some devices because it is not "real" rs232. 
  I had to get a component that would clean up the arduino serial, like this $2.50 component on ebay:

Hi Paul ,
do you mean by not "real" rs232 the signal voltage level ? cos i checked with the PLC manufacturer and its signal is 0-5V DC
or is it a protocol matter as Rob mentioned ?
can you tell me the devices you tried to connect with

To connect to a pc or one of our devices via db9 connector I needed this device to create true TTL serial.
