  Sounds like you have a newer version than mine. Mine is 1.1B IIRC. It has
boxs that say Yes or No or you can enter things like Half or Full in the
Duplex entry. It has two places for handshaking, one is for software
(XON/XOFF) and the other for hardware (CTS/DTR). You can turn each on or
off individually. I've tried every combination of Off and On but it doesn't
make a difference. I am connected to the corrrect port (2) if I switch it
to Comm 1 the various ready lights on the breakout box all go out.
