    RS-232 port #2, how to use

    I am having problems with my #1 RS-232 port sending programs. I'd like to try port#2, so how do you activate it for communications.

    Thanks----Mike

    [QUOTEI'd like to try port#2][/QUOTE]

    Port #2 is for auxiliary axis communications.
    Say a rotary axis driven thru a stand along box.
    I don't think you can use it for loading / unloading / DNC to the main control.
