You'll have to enable the rotator fx in satpc32.

Then, when the program starts, serversdx will give you an error
(defaults to com 0). Cancel it. It will be on the toolbar at the
bottom of the window. Click on server sdx, select setup, tell it com
port and speed (9600 8N1 IIRC). Click ok, restart satpc32. It should
find the tracker.

Troubleshoot com port problems using a loopback test. Use a female
jumper from tx pin to rx pin on the DB9. Open your fave terminal. Talk
trashy to yourself. See it? Good! Not? Start down the troubleshooting

Have fun!

When I start the SATPC32 program, I get an error message "Port 1 could not be found".  According to the device manager in my PC, the Keyspan 19HS has COM2 assigned.  I selected COM2 for rotor setting.  I think I am supposed to select the same COM2 for ServerSDX.  But, I never get ServerSDX box on the screen.  Appreciate any help you can give me.  Thanks.
