I'm trying to connect a picaxe 08m2 via my rs232 com1 port. I have XP.
picaxe editor 6 says it can't connect..
A check on the serial cable finds no problems electrically.
So I want to do a loopback test.
I called up Hyperlink, but the opening wizard requires three boxes to be filled.
The first is What country
The next asks for area code or city code.
But here is the problem.
It wont accept letters, only digits 0 - 9.
Being in the UK my post code starts with BD
So I can't access hyperterminal to do the test.
Anyone know how to get around this ?
I only wish to do the loopback as my computer device manager tells me that COM1 is operating normally.
