I didn't see anyone try to assist..sooo...
Many questions.. What software both the tracking and the operating system??
What doesn't it do?
I have a similar set up with Yaesu rotor, LVB tracker with USB interface and
I am using SatPC32.  
You MUST configure your computer port to work with the tracker.  My system
also controls my Icom 910.  That I set up with a USB port and configured it
as noted in the software.
I am not a software engineer but have configured many PC's to work with this
Awaiting your answers and maybe someone else can chime into your query.

Subject: [amsat-bb] LVB Tracker / 5500 rotor / USB-Serial Port coversion

I am struggling trying to establish a proper USB - Serial port conversion on
my laptop. Can someone tell me which software is best for this conversion
and what are the pitfalls. I have tried the FTDI Drivers as described in the
LVB Tracker Box Manual without success. With so many LVB Trackers in use I
am sure there is a way, but I have not found it yet. I may be doing
something wrong during the installation of this software and I can not
figure it out. Any suggestion will really be appreciated and tried.
