Thank you for the suggestion Bill. Before doing anything I did a restart of Windoze to ensure nothing had gone amiss. I selected both the TS50S then the TS480 from the pull down menu. I kept settings as per G3XJP's spec: 9600,8,1, no handshake, RTS and DTR blank. Then I followed Dave Garber's suggestion of setting DTR and RTS high. Did this with both the TS480 and tS50S. Still no success.

Hi Brian,

try one of the more basic rig models like the TS-480 or the TS-50.
