Hi everyone, I’m new to this forum and hope someone can help.
I used to be a programmer, and am now just consultant and trying to help a client get the Fastrack to work with some packaged software. The software basically semds SMS messages through the FT, which is cinnected to a serial port. I do know the software works as other clients use it (not mine), but am having trouble getting this one to work. Basically the software loads and continually tries to communicate with the device but doesnt get a response, so I’m now trying to just ‘talk’ to the FT to make sure it is actually there and ‘live’.
I’ve been using the old ‘Terminal’ program - and using simple AT commands to try get a response - but getting nothing.
The added complication is that the FT is connected to a USB to Serial converter cable - and I’m not 100% sure which COM port that provides - so trying them all.
Is there a simple idiot way of making sure that the device is actually working and taking commands.
Thanks for any help
