[ct-user] re CAT CT FT-1000mp
Fri, 10 Mar 2000 15:09:19 -0800
I had problems like this when first configuring CT & MPs back around
version 9.25 or so.
I wrote a batch file wilt all the command line switches and that part has
worked ever since on various versions of CT, up to and including
9.47.001. I have not tried it on 9.48
I put in ALL the commands to set everything to specific parameters. In my
case the E72 was the secret to success
comtsr1 -b4800 -p1 -i4 -a3f8 -e72
and of course, the baud rate really isn't set until its done in the CT
setup screen, but the parity does need to be set on some machines, apparently.
I used all this when I was configuring for 4 com ports - for com 1 and 2,
the port, interrupt and address are not needed at all, but beyond that, it
gets hairy immediately, so I just put it all in for all the ports.
maybe this will get things settled for you
