Which comm paramter you use ? (baud, parity, start, stop bits, ...)

Most of the "PC" programs simply ignore all parity errors, so you see what
comes in, but the uVAX ignore the characters.

The result: it seems ok, but it isn't ;-))

You have any REAL terminal to check it out ?

BTW, don't trust your "PC" programs. Many times I run into a bug, that you
think you changed the comm parameter, but you have to exit the application
and enter again to be sure. (so far to the nice world of cut&paste ;-())

cheers & have fun,
