Accessing ComPort from Mendix App

Can anyone point out if it would be possible to access the comport of a computer that runs a Mendix app via web-browser?   Is there a widget for this I did not find in the appstore or would another way be more suitable?   Best   Jakob

This isn't a Mendix question, this is a JavaScript question. A quick Google suggests this is not possible, see e.g. here and here.

You might be able to get this working in the browser with locally executed Java or ActiveX (probably insecure) and there is no straightforward way to integrate these technologies with your Mendix app.
