Resolved. Problem was a common parallel to USB adapter cable does not work
when connected between the SASI Sat Tracker and a USB port on my laptop.
Before I knew what was happening, the G5500 slewed to the limits in both
axis. In the mean time, I'm looking for a different interface to use between
the G5500 control unit and computer USB ports. Uni-Trac maybe, if
they're still available.
Thanks for the bandwidth.
