Hi,

I'm working with a Small Z80 system. I use Absolute to connect to the Small Z80 using a telnet connection which works great. I open another instance of Absolute to connect via a serial connection to eventually support file transfers.

I'm running a terminal program on the Small Z80 system to communicate using the serial port. When I type on the Small Z80 system, the text appears in the Absolute Serial Window. When I type on the Absolute Serial instance, nothing appears in the Absolute Telnet instance. If I use Putty for the serial connection, text appears as expected in both instances.

Any help on troubleshooting would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Darrell

Sounds like you need to turn on 'local echo' to see the key strokes as they're being sent.

Options->Properties->VTOptions->KeyOptions->Local Echo

Hope that helpsl....
