Hi All, sure the answer is in here somewhere but having problems finding it!

I'm so new I still wear a nappy! I have loads of tutorial material I have been collecting whilst waiting for my box to arrive and read plenty. Trying to link my 2 day old DB500s to my laptop with a null modem but cant get them to talk. I am using a 9pin for the DB but with a usb for the laptop. The dreamup sends me to com3 but nothing happens. Do I need to link up with a PC and not a laptop?

Thanks in advance

Chris

1. You need a null-modem cable, not a straight through serial.
2. Not all USB > serial can be used.
3. Box need to be turned off completely (remove supply). Then start DreamUp. Disable "Use network". Click connect. Power up box.

Above is from memory, so allow minor mistakes.
