I was trying to test my old "Minitel
" server (that was running on my 520 STF many years ago) using Steem on Win7 and a real Minitel terminal. The Minitel is plugged to my laptop using a serial to USB converter. I know for sure that the link is working properly. I can exchange data in both directions using PuTTY in serial mode (1200 baud, 7 data bits, 1 stop bit, even parity). Now, if I configure the serial output of Steem to the same COM port (which happens to be COM8 on my machine), it seems like it's only working in the PC to Minitel direction. But I can't receive any data back from the Minitel.
So I was wondering if Steem serial implementation is really supposed to be bidirectional. I do have the Steem source code, but I've to admit I was too lazy to check. Or did anyone have the same problem with another serial emulation experiment?
Thanks for your feedback.
