Hi

If you are using a console connection you will need a terminal emulator. There are quite a few out there but windows usually ha a built in one called Hyperterminal - start menu -> Accessories -> hyperterminal.

Open this up, select the com port (usually com1) and then when it comes to the settings just change the baud rate to 9600.

That should work.

Thanks man!
