Thanks for the replies. Out of curiosity, I pulled out an old Inspiron
600m laptop and it works. at least for polling the rig. I haven't
tried an upload yet. Perhaps this suggest a serial timing issue? The
other computer that didn't work is and Athlon quad on a Asus m/b. I do
regularly use the serial port on the Asus machine without any issue.
Later this morning I will try uploading. Thank
