ADTPro problems

I'm having problems using ADTPro via null-modem serial link.  I have installed it on both MacOS and Windows 10.  I also have two Apple IIes.  One enhanced platinum and one non-inhanced.  They each have their own serial cards.  I configue the cards with the block pointing up and the switches as shown in ADT's site.  I also do the IN# of the slot and get "Apple SSC" and enter the correct number.  When I run the software on both the Mac and Win10 it starts to send the data and the light on my data cable blinks showing it is sending data.  The progress on the server says it's sening data.  I get no response from the Apples and nothing appears on the screen after starting the send.  The server says the data sent and completes.   I believe both cards are working cards as I use them as printer cards with no issues.

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks

One thing I noticed about

One thing I noticed about ADTpro is that you have to format the disk for prodos first before you can transfer an image.

From what you've said, your

From what you've said, your problem seems to be one of three things:

First, your serial to USB adapter is not being recognized by your Mac or PC.  This can be the result of the driver not being compatible with the OS, or the device simply isn't supported.  Try reinstalling the driver and see if that helps, otherwise, you may need another adaptor.

 Second,  your SSC isn't properly configured.  If this is the case, then it could be as simple as the card being set up for a different cable than what you have.  To fix this, remove your SSC, there should be a removable component (usually with an arrow or triangle pointing up or down) near the part where the ribbon cable connects to the card.  Pull it out, flip it upside down, and put it back, then reinstall your card.

And third, there's something wrong with your modem cable (25-9pin).  There could be internal damage (an open) somewhere along the line.  In this case, you'll need a new cable.

Hope this helps.  I had to go through all of this when I was setting up my //e.

Try to follow these

Try to follow these instruction's:

ADTPro serial cabling:
http://adtpro.com/connectionsserial.html

If you haven't an ADTPro Bootdisk already, you need to follow the bootstrap instruction:
http://adtpro.com/bootstrap.html

Anything else needed, then follow the instructions:
http://adtpro.com/install.html

Stillopen question's, use the ADTPro discussion page:
https://github.com/ADTPro/adtpro/issues

I believe this should clear all open question's if not and because of that I do miss my crystal ball, that's all I can offer based on what was asked and shared by the TO

Have fun...

UPDATE: just saw that you are already in contact with David Schmitt at the discussion page.
