Re: [tracker2] Re: T2 and AGWPE
- Well I'm still stuck. I just wired up a 5 wire version and I am still getting the same negative results. Scott or anyone else, if you could test this with AGWPE and clearly document any problems you may or may not have encountered, I think it would be extremely helpful going forward, especially when the product goes into production as I am sure there are many many people using this software.
I can't imagine I have any defective components or bad connections etc, I have succesfully tested this unit standalone as well as with Xastir without incident.
I'm hard headed so I won't give up that easily, but I honestly don't know anything more to do.

I tried the 3 wire version, don't ask me why I said 5 wire lol, it was one of those days. Yes, I did get the 3 loopback wires in place also.
I tried this on my known working debian linux box that I am currently running a KPC-3 on, and no luck. I am going to build the 5 wire version today or tommorow and try that.
Dumb question. Do I need to attach the shield wire to the ground pin? The ground pin already has it's own seperate wire, but wasn't sure if I need to do anything with the shield wire or not. I hacked the end of a DB-9 serial cable off and wired it to a bare DB-9 connector.

I've copied the diagrams I sent Stephen into the files area, if
anybody is curious.
Stephen, did you try the 3 or 5 wire version...? And did you get the 3
loopback wire links in place on the DB-9 for the PC end? (for the
