A couple of SuperSerialCard questions (simple stuff for sure)

I'm doing some basic experiments and learning the ins and outs of the SSC. Finally!! Currently I have a basic setup II+ to PC (SSC-cable-DB9serialport).

Is it normal for the terminal (PC hypertem) to have to be set to VT100 and FORCE INCOMING TO 7-bit ASCII? FOr unless I do that I get some extra garbage on the PC side.

The 8-bit / 7-bit dip switch on the card doesn't seem to correct this.

Now, if I use VT102 emulation on AlphaCom, I don't have this problem.

What's going on here.

Yes.

Windows terminal software (hyperterm) is barely passable as terminal software. You get exactly what you pay for in that case.
