cover, I discovered the connector from the DB9 to the T2-135 was loose
in the socket. I reconnected it and regained (some) connectivity.
Both LED's do blink when the power is applied.
Mike, I like the idea of hot-melt glue on the connector - the kind I
have can be peeled off pretty easily, so it could be undone at any time,
but should hold against vibration, etc.
I said (some) connectivity, because getting the config program to
