SOFTWARE INSTALLATION
Introduction.
This section describes the software installation procedure allowing
the PCMCIA 1 port RS232 to be configured within the Windows 95,
Windows 98, Windows Millenium and Windows 2000 operating
systems.
Windows 95 Installation
•
Insert the card into an available type2 socket. This can be done
even if the machine is powered ON.
•
If installing from a "power off" condition Windows 95 should
then load normally. During the booting process, Windows 95
will detect the card and briefly display a message box indicating
the detection process.
•
Windows will then display the "Update Device Driver Wizard",
requesting “insert any disk which came with the card”. Insert the
Serial Solutions CDROM installation disk
or the Serial
Solutions floppy disk into an appropriate drive and click 'Next' .

These settings allow access to the faster data rates available on this
card. The faster rates are not enabled by default for compatibility
purposes. The faster data rates are only available directly from your
application if it uses the standard Windows dialogue for serial port
settings.
Baud Rate Multiplier
This enables applications that do not use the standard Windows
serial port configuration dialogue to access the faster data rates.
e.g. with this option enabled, an application which selects 115,200
baud will actually set the hardware to the fastest possible rate of
921,600 baud. In other words the baud rate is multiplied by a factor
of 8.

CABLING.
Introduction.
This chapter gives details of the 9 and 25 pin RS232 pin outs,
cabling and connections, with information on how to connect the
serial ports of two PCs and how to make a selftest loop back
connector.
The RS232 Standard.
The RS232 standard is ancient in computer industry terms.
Introduced in 1962, it is now widely established. RS232 is a slow,
short distance, single ended transmission system (i.e. only one
wire per signal). Typical RS232 maximum cable length is 50 feet
with a maximum data rate of 20K bits per second.

9 Pin D Serial Port RS232 Cables.
To connect to the AT style RS232 Serial Port like those found
on the PCMCIA 1 Port card you will need a cable terminating in a
9 way female D connector. It is sound practice to use cables with
screws fitted that will allow you to fasten the cable securely to the
PC card.
In general, you will need to make up a "cross over" cable to
correctly interface the PC to the RS232 port of another computer
or device. Traditionally, making up the cross over cable has been
Chapter 4 Page 34
PCMCIA 1 Port RS232
RS232 Pinouts & Port Cabling
considered a black art. However, provided you have the pin outs
and handshake requirements of both sides of your RS232
connection, the cross over cable becomes a matter of common
sense. The cross over cable is simply to ensure that the right
signals going out of one RS232 port go into the appropriate lines
of the other RS232 port.
9 Pin D Serial Port Connection To Another PC.
Suppose we want to connect the AT style 9 pin D Serial Port
to the serial port of another IBM PC. See Figure 4-3.
1)
Connect the earth lines.
Line 5 of Serial Port 2 to lines 1 & 7 of the other PC.
This gives the two devices a common earth level.
2)
Connect the Transmit and Receive lines together.
Line 3, TXD, Port 2 goes to line 3, RXD, of the other PC.
Line 2, RXD, Port 2 goes to line 2, TXD, of the other PC.
This allows each to receive data transmitted by the other.
3)
Connect the Port 2 DTR line, pin 4 to the other PC DCD,
pin 8 and CTS, pin 5, lines.
Also, connect up the other PC DTR line, pin 20 to the Port
2 DCD, pin 1 and CTS, pin 8, lines.
This allows the receiving device to signal when it can no
longer accept data. The receiving device sets DTR false
when it is unable to receive any more data. The sending
device reads DTR on its CTS and DCD pins. It should stop
sending when CTS goes false.
4)
Connect the Port 2 RTS line, pin 7, to the other PC DSR
line, pin 6. Also, connect the other PC RTS line, pin 4, to
the Port 2 DSR line, pin 6.
This RTS line is used to let the other device know that it is
ready for data exchange.

9 Pin D Serial Port To A Modem.
If you are connecting a MODEM to a 9 pin D Serial Port then
you will NOT need a cross over cable and a straight through cable
connected as the 9 to 25 pin adapter given in Figure 4-5.
9 Pin D Serial Port Loop Back Connector.
A loop back connector can be used to echo RS232 data
transmitted by a serial port back into its own RS232 receiver. In
this way, the function of the serial port can be tested.
For an AT style Serial Port use the a female 9 way connector
wired as in Figure 4-4.
