The end-result of all my experiments and research, in one blog post:


This is the minimum required to hook a 3-wire RS-232 device (TX, RX and GND) up to a Deluxe RS-232 Program Pak.

I noticed Greg-E-Term would operate with just DCD+DTR, but Ultimaterm and OS-9 terminal programs wanted DCD+DSR+DTR.

In all cases, RTS+CTS was necessary to make it work.

Feel free to comment at the blog site with any further corrections.

Lots of stuff coming down the pipeline with this…
