I have my Mega STe, and I just got a Lantronix so that I can call BBSes with it (like Dark Lord's). It's working well.
My question is: What is the easiest way to achieve speeds beyond 19200?
I downloaded something called HSMODEM07, but it's mostly in German, and I can't make sense of how to use/configure it.
Is there an alternative program? Or can someone walk me through how to set up HSMODEM properly for the Mega STe?
I'll probably be using Freeze Dried terminal, ANSIterm, and Taz depending on what BBS I'm calling.

I know how to configure the Lantronix to change modem speeds. Both Taz and AnsiTerm support speeds up to 57600.
I have dropped the HSModem07 drivers into AUTO, and tried to use the setter.ttp program to set them up (really wish there was a clear translation of the German).
Regardless, I always get gibberish in Taz and AnsiTerm when I switch to 57600 baud.
I hadn't been using Xcontrol, but after my failures, I added it and installed Peter Rottengatter's replacement SERIAL.CPX. I used it to set the modem for 57600, etc, but this made no difference. Still gibberish in the terminals.
I also tried connecting the Lantronix onto my Mega STe's SERIAL2 port (instead of MODEM1) since I heard it was capable of higher speeds. ANSIterm still seemed to see the Lantronix (it gave the same gibberish as before), but Taz didn't. So, failure both ways.
Anyone out there able to help? I'm trying to configure my Lantronix, Mega STe, HSmodem and AnsiTerm/Taz working at 57600.
