Hi John,

MMJ to PC running minicom. It's in a remote datacenter so I can't check it out 
at the moment. It worked fine with 1.4, 1.5 and 1.6.2 though. (Still does 
with 1.6.2.) What should I be looking for?

I assume that when you type 'continue' you actually see that on screen?
I get nothing at all.

What machines/firmware did you succeed with?
