STeem serial port to PC serial port.

Post by Bikerbob »

Hey all, trying to setup my EMU so that I can do BBSing ... I would like to use an old PC laptop I have to run a bbs.

STeem I really liked because it had in the setup a pass through of the COM port to the COM port of the pc.

This laptop has a comport, that I have attached to a WImodem232 and it works great from the PC.

When I try and use it in STeem. It sees the com port in the setup.. but I cannot get any communication to it. No comm program I have used yet shows me it working.

Is there a way to test?? is this function working? anyone else successfully done this??

No one eh? So the 3.2 STEEM and the SS steam.. no one is around that can answer technical questions?

3.9.4 of SS I was able to get some form of communications.. but its messed up.. and I have no way to know if its the EMU.. the COMPUTER, the wimodem?.. no idea.

I do not have an answer, but I did do a forum search and found the following. They talk about using different programs to route virtual serial ports which might help perhaps.

thanks for the response Stormy.. I did see all those, but those are a bit different than what I am looking to do.. and I thought that mine would be much more straight forward.

I am trying to get the Serial port of the Virtual Atari (SEE or 3.2 STeem) to work with a HARDWARE com port on the PC.

On that com port I have a Wimodem232 - which is a wifi enabled Hayes compatible modem. AKA uses the AT command set.

There is a LCD on the modem.. so I can see that there is a connection, and that I can issue 1 command that it seems to accept, and then locks up.

This happens in both 3.2 and SEE.. SO I guess maybe trying another device on the com port might be a good test..

If it works with Virtual ports then it SHOULD work with real hardware - should be much easier.
