[ct-user] Couple of CT Questions

Not contesting this weekend I'm just fooling around on the computer<s>.

I've got a couple of CT Questions.  First one should be easy.

Id like to build the CW interface for LPT1.  What do I need and how
do I go about it.  Guess I need a wiring diagram and parts.  Don't see
a diagram on the CT webpage and can't find the manual. (Probably lost
it 10 years ago).

Second, I wanted to "fix up" my config file and everything works
automatically except it does not set COM2 at 4800 baud for the 1000MP.
It selects the radio OK but not the comport and baud.  Here's my config

Name:          Al Xxxxxx
Call:          N1API
Address:       xxx Xxxx Xxxxx XX.
Town:          Meriden,
State:         CT
ZIP:           06451
Zone:          5
Contest:       CQWW
Club:          Yankee Clipper Contest Club
Mode:          SSB
Category:      SO
LAT:           41.52 
LONG:          72.82
CWPORT:        LPT1
TNC:           COM1,9600
Radio1:        FT1000MP,4800,COM2
Radio2:        NONE
Rotor1:        NONE
Rotor2:        NONE
Network:       NONE
QSOB4:         QSO B4 QRZ N1API

I thought that maybe the file is failing after the FT1000MP but I
don't know.  Com1 and the TNC do set correctly.  I've tried using all
caps for Radio1 and also adding spaces between the radio, baud and com
and even tried to switch the order around but no luck.  It's a minor
problem because I can easily set it but it would be nice if the CFG
file worked OK

Thanks for any help.
