    Lots of people have problems with Dreamup andUSB null modem, find an old pc with serial com port and save yourself the headache.

    def go with a proper serial port, i've used both the prolific adapter and another brand and had nothing but trouble.

    save yourself a few headaches and find a machine with one built in, most desktops over 3 tears old will have a nine pin on the back of the machine which will do the job perfectly.
