Com Port Usage Reply
by W2LK on February 15, 2001 Mail this to a friend!
Hi All,

I am trying to get WL set for this weekend. I am using a 4 port Byte Runner board starting at Com 5 so I have Com 1-2 and 5-8 set up. I am using a PK232 for keying, all of which I have had running in another configuration so I know it all works.

I need to have the PK232 keying on Com 5 and I have an entry in writelog.ini for CommSlot3=5. I also have Com 5-8 defined in the .ini file. When WL starts, I get a "Com Port Not Available" message. The Setup menu shows Com 5 in the third slot like it should but it won't let me use the port.
I tried the RTTY window on Com 5 and it initialized the PK232 correctly so the port is connected and working.

Any ideas on what I am missing and/or should try?


73, Les
