Use a loop-back plug. You can make one easy enough, just solder the pins on
a 9 pin d-shell connector then plug it into your machine while running
hyperterminal.  Anything you type should appear on the screen with echo
turned off. The pin-out is like this - 

DB-9F Serial Loopback Plug Wiring

Pin 2 to 3 
(Xmit to Rec)

Pin 7 to 8 to 9
(RTS to CTS to RI)

Pin 6 to 1 to 4 
(DSR to CD to DTR)
One other thing you may look at, is making all the connections except XMT,
RCV, and GND and then connecting it to your PCB.  ( The host computer
sometimes needs to see these signals to work. )

Hello all,
For the past month, I have been trying to get the pcbug program to talk to
the board.  I have replaced the 68hc11, the 232, and tried a different
board.  I came to the conclusion that my computer might not be set up
correctly.  I have tested my serial ports, but I get no signals coming from
I either have a bad port, bad cable (I'm currently building a new one), or
my port isn't set up correctly.  Does anyone have any ideas on how to check
if the serial port is set up correctly??
