Error -98 is portNotCf in Apple's header filer MacErrors.h: portNotPwr = -96 /*serial port not currently powered*/ portInUse = -97 /*driver Open error code (port is in use)*/ portNotCf = -98 /*driver Open error code (parameter RAM not configured for this connection)*/ I don't know what that really means, but we are a little further ahead in understanding the Keyspan problem. If you comment out 8 lines of my previously-posted TermGetStatus override fn, it will not try to open for output. You can then discover whether it succeeds in opening for input: //ioErr = fn PBOpenSync( pb ) // try open for output //long if ioErr //stop "Error " + str$( ioErr ) + " opening output" //termStatus = 2 // open already //xelse //ioErr = fn PBCloseSync( pb ) // close output //if ioErr then stop "Error " + str$( ioErr ) + " closing output" pb.ioNamePtr& = @gFBSerialInName$(-serPort) pb.ioRefNum% = 0 pb.ioPermssn` = _fsRdPerm ioErr = fn PBOpenSync( pb ) // try open for input long if ioErr stop "Error " + str$( ioErr ) + " opening input" termStatus = 2 // open already xelse ioErr = fn PBCloseSync( pb ) // close input if ioErr then stop "Error " + str$( ioErr ) + " closing input" end if //end if Robert P.
