Re: OTRSP Protocol Setup

Thanks for the tip about VSP Manager. I've emailed K5FR.

VSP manager is free to hams from K5FR. Contact him for downloading instructions.

That's what I use for controlling my YCCC SO2R+ box.

Out of curiosity, why won't N1MM support named pipes?  Just asking with respect to technology / tradeoffs, not complaining about features/prioritization. 

VSP appears to cost $99. Before I purchase a copy, is anyone aware of a cheaper licensing option?  

On an unrelated note, is there a way to send arbitrary hex or ascii to an arbitrary serial port using an N1MM+ macro, ignoring active/inactive status, etc., but possibly useful for other applications. Similarly, a macro to make a GET request on a URL would be pretty cool.

Larry misspoke.

You set up a virtual serial port connection pair between N1MM+ and the
YCCC SO2R, just as outlined in the YCCC SO2R box manual. N1MM+ does not,
and will not, support a named pipe.

VSP Manager works very well for setting up the serial port connection pair.
