OK I found some more clues.

I plugged in a Prolific USB to RS232 adapter.

What cord are you using to connect your Yaesu FT2DR?

I have been trying to use the cord that came with the radio.

I have even tried connecting the radio and turning it on to clone mode 
to see if a tty port is created, no joy...

It would appear that the cable provided with my radio is not a "smart" 
cable and even connecting to the radio does not create a port.

Who tested the FT2DR? And what cord did they use?
