Yup, the serial port is on. Initially, it was set to COM2, but I used
Device Manager to manually set it to COM1, then delete it. Next time Win95
started, it assigned it to COM1. I tried COM2 as well.
I've disabled IrDA using IBM's ThinkPad program (not a good interface
IMHO), but Win95 still detects it, so I have to disable it. There are no
I even started Win95 in Safe mode, and removed the four(!) IDE controllers
and all the extra devices, and let those get detected next startup.
When I use HyperTerm, it can open only the port I have configured. No
other ports can be opened. That port can only be opened once at one time,
and still no data transfer or handshake signals appear on the modem
