Subject: Re: 5v out serial port
Radio Shack sells a little RS-232 tester for under $20 which could show if
your Kaypro is putting out the proper signals. It's about the size of a
null-modem adapter, with seven two-color LEDs on it. You can leave it plugged
into the computer for neat-looking blinky lights. By the way, does your
modem have lights? Do any of them light up when it's connected to the Kaypro?
It's possible you could have damaged the modem by plugging it into the Amiga
with power on (making a squelching noise?). You could also damage the Amiga.
If you use the same modem with two computers, you should get an A/B switch.
