Note: The serial signals connected to CN6 and CN15 are coming straight out the I/O-chip and aren't fully RS-232 compatible. You need higher and also negative voltages to have a real serial port and those aren't available in the WebPlayer. That's probably why CN6 & CN15 also carry the supply voltage so an external device can be powered to interface the signals to true RS-232.

If you want/need a Real Serial Port see: How to build a  RS-232 Serial Port
