Wow ... the DMV wants to phone home to 1983 now ...

Code:
mess64 dmv -slot1 k202 -slot3 k211 -slot7a k235 -bitbngr socket.127.0.0.1:10000 -window


- HW Virtual Serial Port 3 providing COM3 on 127.0.0.1:10000
http://www.hw-group.com/products/hw_vsp/index_en.html

- HTERM listening on COM3 set to 9600/N/8/1
http://www.der-hammer.info/terminal/

- Boot DOS, use CONFIG, set COM1/AUX to above values

- Load ASCOM

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/55419307/NCR%20DMV/ascom.img

Set COM1 to above values ... hint: No parity is called SPACE parity here, set protocol to XON/XOFF

Set remote operating mode ... aaaand ...

You don't actually need a virtual serial port, just connect to the port with PuTTY.

Ah nice, I didn't know that, thanks ... I was thinking along the lines of LapLink, so my solution is possibly more universal.

Doesn't MARK and SPACE mean "parity bit always 1" and "parity bit always 0"? Or am I confusing them now? I admit it has been some time since I had to deal with that smile

Ascom is offering these choices

I got some more DMV manuals ... nothing fundamentally new, but the setup procedure for the HDD (Winchester) is described.

A diagnostic module turned up on Ebay ...



I've updated the relevant archive with pics and the ROMs which appear to be newer than the others.
