Hello,

I have recently received a portable word processor (dreamwriter 400) as a sort of castoff. It works, and I would like to use it, but I have no manual to guide me. I can figure out the processor itself, but it is supposed to be able to communicate with a PC via a serial null modem hookup. I have the serial cable and the modem (it has a variable baud rate setting) in the PWP seems to be working correctly but when I hook it up nothing happens. I believe that I have to have some sort of software on my computer for the two to communicate. Does anyone know what program I might try? The compnay that produced these (in Canada) is out of business so the only oprion is a generic program.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks
