I am using Wintest for CAT control of my Omni VI+ - it works flawlessly with a simple USB-to-serial adapter and also with the Microham CW keyer (set to RS232 levels)

If flrig could be made to work, the "CMD" section of flrig would allow appropriate commands to be sent for additional control of the radio. The Ten-Tec manual has an entire section on what strings to send for various functions.
