If it's anything like the other Lucent/HP boxes, the serial port talks ASCII.
You should be able to talk to it with a terminal emulator program or direct
from the shell.
What OS are you using? I can't help with Windows. With *ix, I'd do "cat
/dev/ttyXX" on one window and "echo "xxx" > /dev/ttyXX" on another. Use stty
to adjust baud rate.
Was it ever working in your location? Was it ever working in some other
My quick guess would be that it did a survey at another location and is
having trouble getting started because it "knows" the wrong location. If so,
once you can talk to it you can tell it to do a survey...
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
