Bobby,

What version of MacAPRS are you trying to use?

Since you mentioned that this was a new PowerBook, I assume you are  
trying to run the Carbon (i.e. OS X compatible) version.  I may be  
wrong (haven't been keeping up), but I don't think the serial  
interface is yet working on the Carbon version.  It only supports  
Internet connections.

To run with a serial connection, you will have to run an OS 9 version  
under Classic.  This should work OK.  I have used Keyspan adapters as  
well as adapters based on Prolific and FTDI chips.  You just have to  
make sure you have the correct drivers.

Hope this is helpful and sorry if I've stated information that you  
already know.


73,
Greg
