Hi Larry -

Progress=85=85to a degree.  I had improperly loaded the FTDI driver for =
Linux and when I reloaded it, I am now able to open the com ports with =
WinSDR.  However, no data is coming in.  When I look at the log file, I =
see the following message:  DLL: Reset Board - NoUsbDataError=3D0 =

I checked all com ports from Com1 through Com9 and I get identical =
messages. =20

I will recheck my system settings tomorrow and see if I can figure out =
why there is no signal coming in.

I am getting a VERY RAPID education on Linux - not too hard, just =
