I've just tried to get the SS1000 working with the VT320, and no joy with
any of the cables I had.
I then tried with a laptop and minicom, but as before, the most I managed
to get out of it was ...
......>.~~...~....... etc etc
(that's u-umlaut crossed-out-capital-O dot y-umlaut dot u-umlaut beta ...)
Does that mean anything to anyone? Can any of the serial wizards out
there figger out which setting I need to prod?
I've got minicom set to 9600 8 N 1 and vt102 mode.
And another thing, the vt320 does all its self tests then shows the
copyright message. Whatever key I press, it drops to a blank screen
and waits for something to tickle its serial port. What's the magic
keypress to get into the terminal setup?
Please pardon my serial ineptitude ...
