Re: Problems getting my DV-Dongle working with my computer
- This is exactly what you see if Windows is blocking the socket with
the firewall (or maybe a 3rd party firewall/security software).
The "receive Socket closed" is what you get if DVTool cannot talk to
ascpseriald via sockets.
Something in the O/S is blocking your TCP/IP socket communications.
