 Most of these like to use better letters such as the letter B.
Try setting things to the slowest baud on the terminal and then
you can watch realtime on a scope( like 110 ).
 Get one of those light boxes. You still might be missing one
of the handshake lines that one machine needs that the other
doesn't. Get the box with the switches and jumpers. These are
in the $20 to $25 range and worth every penny.
