I asked this over on the Book of Face. I'm focussed on the SSC as I don't think I missed anything in the ADTPro setup or use but I could be wrong.
Any way to test a Super Serial card? A loopback or something that doesn't require a terminal program.
To add some context. I am having trouble with ADTPro and getting it to recognise the server on my laptop. Starting to suspect the SSC.
- I have tried and show connection under Windows and Linux to my FDTI usb serial port.- I've tried both 115200 and 19200 (server and apple iie side).- Latest versions of ADTPro being used.- I wired a simple null modem up (only tx/Rx reversed and signal ground connected) with the appropriate terminal block position on the SSC.- I do have another null modem coming today, in case the simple one isn't sufficient.
A thoughts are appreciated..
I quickly checked the diagnostic disks I have handy on my floppy emu.
Aptest has a ssc test you can run. But I have no idea what it checks. I ran it, and it almost immediately said the card was good then booted into some strange test where the screen was showing all kinds of characters.
Apex has a serial card test, but seems to require you having a printer hooked up to the ssc.
The apple dealer service disk has a serial test, but seems to require a second test card of some kind.
The Nikrom master diagnostic IIe has a ssc test, but appears to just check the rom.
I have my ssc set to terminal in slot one for using with my image writer II. With that same setting, I can connect to ADT pro using a 25pin to 9 pin straight adapter, directly to the usb/db9 cable I bought from the adtpro site no issues.
Another way, albeit not immeadiate would be to get a breakout box (and 9-25 pin adapter if you don't already have one).
Here is a fairly inexpensive one on Amazon.
I have a new null modem cable to try tonight
Below switch settings as suggested by Hasseeb Chaudhary and a new null modem cable did the trick!! I am now transfering disk images successfully with ADTPro!
ADT really rocks!
Love it, just recieved 30 new old stock disks. Time to fill 'em. Though I do need to get an emulator eventually.
If you think it rocks with a Super Serial card, you should try it with an Uthernet card over your home network.
Baldrick are you trying to get me divorced??? If I by one more card for my apple I will be sleeping in my truck! ROFL
If you go this route, you can power your II from the car's 12v supply with a 5v step down converter and two transistors for the negative voltages, using SpeedyG's design.
