With the lack of serial ports on laptops now it is difficult to avoid having
to use the USB option. I have used one for many years now without too many
problems (sending break is often the difficult one), but in general they do
I also 'invested' in a serial cable for the IPad which makes temporary hookups
really easy. The cable was not cheap, but means going to site is a whole lot
simpler in terms of tools , ie Ipad, cable and a few screwdrivers.
Glad you sorted it.
