[Tinyos-help] not able to receive packet from PC

Thanks for the reply. Yes I have tried the tutorial. That's why I found the
problem. The tutorial uses the TestSerial to send the packet to Mote from
PC. Upon receiving the first packet from PC at the mote, a periodic timer is
set up and periodically fires to send packet from mote to PC. Am I
undertanding this correctly?

My problem now is the timer is never set up because the receiving event of
mote from pc never executes, which sounds like no packet is received ever.
But actually the PC is sending correctly.

I am  using Telosb mote with correct port. Any more suggestions?
