    Hard to say. We need more information. Your is available in Serial, Parallel, & USB. Which one do you have?
    Then you ask questions in this kind of forum. Information is worth its price in gold. It is hard to provide to much information. Always include links to data sheet or documentation. If you have any code or schematics to show include that also. And here I will emphasize on the importance of posting schematics. We will not be able to help unless you provide such information.
    Looking forward to your next post

    you need to study about the serial transmission registers setting of 8051....
    download datasheet of 8051 and read the requirements....
    then program your code....

    You will also need a TTL to RS232 level converter. A very common circuit for this is the MAX232 which is also mentioned in your doc file.
    Use Google and search for max232
