MULTILINK ML1600 ETHERNET COMMUNICATIONS SWITCH – INSTRUCTION MANUAL 17–11
17.4 Serial Connectivity
When using the serial connectivity with applications such as HyperTerminal, it may be
necessary to optimize the character delays so that the FIFO buffer used in the MultiLink
switches is not overrun. The important parameters to set for any serial connectivity
software is to set the line delay to be 500 ms and the character delay to be 50 ms. For
example, using HyperTerminal this can be set under File > Properties.
Z When the Properties window is open, click on the ASCII Setup
Z In the Line Delay entry box enter in 500.
Z In the Character Delay entry box enter in 50 as shown below.
