[ct-user] PK232MBX interface problems

Perhaps someone can help -- Ive searched the archives and tried every trick 
I can -- all to no avail.  The PK-232MBX does not respond at all, to any 
command typed into the window at alt-T.

I'm running under pure DOS.
Tried 2 different computers - the pk software that comes with the 232 talks 
fine to the 232 on both machines -- telling me the hardware is okay.
Have tried the following recommended sequence:
PK232 off
boot up in DOS
run comtrs1
run ct, pick a multi mode
set up TNC.  (Not sure if should be local or remote, but neither works)
ALT-T gets me the talk window
Turn on PK-232
Type * return, or anything else
Any help would be appreciated.  email direct if you think its not of general 
interest.  BTW, Im using the shareware version, 6.26.  Ill buy the program 
if I can get the darn thing to work.  Keying the rig on CW through LPT1 
works fine BTW.
