In post https://www.henriaanstoot.nl/2022/11/25/disk-troubles-or-missing-old-skool-hardware/ i mentioned the serial connectors i’ve bought to connect the Laser XT to my Workstation to transfer files.
The null modem i’ve made is like mentioned on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Null_modem
I’ve used the loopback handshaking using 3 wires. ( Only using a DB25 and a DB9 on the other end )
So i configured the Linux side as follows.
I’ve tried two usb to serial converters.
Dec 14 17:34:40 zspot kernel: [ 1082.299607] usb 1-4: pl2303 converter now attached to ttyUSB0
sudo stty -F /dev/ttyUSB0 9600
Then i start dosbox.
To enable a com port i have to enter:
Starting Norton Commander and selecting COM1
After a few seconds i got this ..
What else is there to check?
At least i’ve still got the Flux Engine!
