All my ports are RIM virtual ports, USB. The choices I get from Realterm match the ports my laptop has 13,14,15,16,& 17. Only com 3 works in that CTS and DSR go green.

What is the serial adaptor that you are using??

I think that might be the problem.

I did a search of "serial adaptor" in my computer and it returns with "no matches" found. I'm running "Vista"

good job guys!

i am in the research phase of a first time ev conversion. looks like your latest 1000a controller will be my choice.(chin up Paul, you will get it)

Flatman, right click "my computer"
choose properties.
go to the "hardware" tab
click "device manager"
look for "ports, com & lpt"
click the + next to them.

it will show you what com ports you have installed.

i believe that will work for vista.

edit: or just search for "device manager"

Hi Caspar, Looking in the device area I have ports 13 through 20 loaded. I have been trying to create a com 1 without success. I think I'll find an older computer, maybe an old desk top to get over this obstacle. I'm at work now which will give me a chance to colaberate with others about this.

Thanks for the input.

Caspar, thanks for the input I dug deeper and found the tab I was looking for. I now have a Com1. I just wish I was at home to go try it out!!! Maybe I could call my boss and tell I'm feeling sick...... man am I tempted. hehe

Question on the Caps - is there any reason that we're using 16x 820uF instead of less higher capacity ones?
