Okay I am trying to use my serial cable hookup to the modem port on an
oldworld for the first time now.
I have a mac modem to 25 pin serial cable, linked to a null modem (though I
hhave tried without the null modem also) connector, then I have tried plugging
it into the back of a pc, the back of my pismo (with a keyspan usb to serial
cable) and to a serial mouse.
None of these seem to do anything, and I also cant type or see anything when
booting amachine and tryying to get into OF.
What am I doing wrong?
Running minicom with 38400 8N1 on the mac and the pc or pismo, I cant type at
either end or see anything. When i have the mouse plugged in and cat
/dev/ttyS0 or minicom running I also see nothing.
As mentioned I have tried all this both with and without the null modem
connected in the middle.
