The Pegasus does not have a special interface.  It is simply a asynchronous
serial link.

Since (my understanding is tha)t the Pegasus software is done in VB (perhaps
an older version since 16 bit is apparently supported, any serial port which
is supported by the operating system should be OK.

So the real question is whether you have a serial port sitting on the USB
with a driver which is compliant with what ever operating system you are

Or am I missing something.
