RSLinx conflict

Resolution
If you cannot connect to your PLC over Modbus Serial you may have Rockwell Drivers/RSLinx installed on your PC. The Rockwell software takes full control of the COM port and will not allow anything else to communicate out. The Rockwell software needs to be completely shut down to free up the COM port.
