You cant just buy a CAN to RS232 cable and run any software on your computer to get the data. The problem with this is simply the fact that you need an intermediate device that is capable in interpreting the CAN bus, it's sampling rate, etc.

Now the actual scanner manufacturers are not stupid either. They make the hardware be only compatible with their own scanner, which can be done easily through a simple handshake protocol.. So if you're thinking of getting a cheap scanner and running autoenginuity software on it.. Good luck! It wont work.
