Sending events through serial port in VB6

Specs: Dell
I'm new to VB and am struggling with com port output. Regardless of what I send through MSComm1.Output I activate the same two pins on the serial port. I am so confused. Can anyone help?

Which two pins are these that are being activated - RTS, CTS, DSR, DTR, Data In, Data Out

AS it is a serial port all data goes through two pins, Data In and Data Out. All the other pins are control signals that are either activated or deactivated depending on whether the comm port is transmitting, receiving or is idle.

What is it you have connected to the serial port. That can have a bearing on how the port behaves.
