Can anyone tell me the latest version of MHM that the 2120 is compatible with? I just received an email from Emerson suggesting that communication dropped off somewhere between V5.0 and V5.4. But I'm sure I've seen a client using 5.41 and maybe even 5.61.

Update: Cable issue - I'm chasing a CSi Model 630 Cable if you have one hiding in a cupboard somewhere, long forgotten by the passage of obsolescence [smile]

v5.61 works with 2120. But v5.7 is out and that won't work with 2120 or 2130. Yes you read it. Time to upgrade.  I'll stick with v5.61 until the end of the year then bite the bullet to go 2140.  The dollar is getting better too. rgds

Turns out it is my 9-pin to 25-pin D sub cable.

Anyone have a spare?

Rusty or Ted?

It is a "standard" 9-25 adapter, may still exist in the museum part in a old PC shop if that still exist. I should have one that is not a cable but a thingy cast in plastic but maybe not so much help.

Thanks Oli, I've found one that is not wired correctly, so it appears not all are the same [smile]

Pin-out for 2120 attached. I'll start scouring the Thrift shops [smile]

Depend on if you use the original 25/25 first and then just an adapter. Drawing indicate 2 and 3 shifted and it may then be a "null modem" cable you are looking for and then it may replace the complete mess by just a 25/9 cable. So worst case you need to go the hard way and buy a 25 and a 9 DSUB connector and 7 pole cable. Have fun. You could look in a old modem box maybe there is a cable left in it.

Send me a message which your address and I will mail it out.

The CSI 9/25 pin com cables for the 2120's that I'm using are a model A639 (I have a spare if still needed).   Make sure the problem isn't your adaptor.  I currently use Trendnet TU-S9 USB to serial converters with my Asus laptops.  I found that the Belkin adaptor that I used with my old Dell laptop wouldn't work with the newer Asus units.  It'd connect, but was so slow... it'd probably take a whole day to load a small route with just a few machines.
