12670Re: [tracker2] Re: PC to OT2 Serial Connection
- Jul 2, 2011I have assembled a female-to-female 2-2, 3-3, 5-5 DB9 straight
thru cable and a male-to-female 2-3, 3-2, 5-5 DB9 null modem
cable and have connected them between the serial port on my
laptop to the "serial" port on my Tracker2/OT2M.
I have gtkterm loaded in Linux.
I set Configuration - Local Echo to ON.
When Configuration - Port - Flow Control is set to None or to
RTS/CTS the only response I receive when power is applied to
the Tracker2/OT2M is a single character that looks like an
ancient Greek "P" or something. (Also, none of the LEDs remain
lighted on the OT2M box.)
When Configuration - Port - Flow Control is set to Xon/Xoff
I get an endless screen of junk characters. (The LED labeled
"ACT" on the OT2M remains lighted.)
Where should I look for the solution, please?
Was I supposed to set jumpers in the OT2M or should it talk
to gtkterm as-shipped?
Thanks! & 73, KD4E
