Dynapath delta 20 DNC Help

Joined
Jul 19, 2022
Hi everyone, im having some issues getting my dynapath delta 20 control (late 80s to early 90s) to communicate with my computer. Machine is a tree journeyman 325 with the rs232 serial port. Ive configured a cable per dynapath to be compatible with hardware or software handshake, i believe the cable is correct because i can send program to the dnc software but it appears as garbage data? (@[email protected]@) I have tried every possible setting that I can think of. The dnc softwares ive tried are DNC4U and easyDNC, Also im using a startech db9 to usb adapter to go to laptop running windows 10. Ive only tried sending from the cnc to the DNC Software because i haven't had any luck past there. Ive used all different baud rates, software and hardware handshake, i am stumped? Hoping its something silly that im overlooking and one of you wizzards out there have overcame the same problem? Using;
7 data bits
Even parity
1 stop bits
Echo off
X1/X0 on and off
Baud rates from 300-9600

Just cannot get anything to work for me? Any help would be greatly appreciated, i know its an old machine, but id love to get it figured out before i pull trigger on a VMC.

Thank you

For what it's worth, I'm using a laptop with the following setup to drip feed and send/receive without issue:

Machine/Control: Compumill 4000 with Dynapath Delta 20
USB to serial adapter: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077TVBF54/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Null modem crossover adapter: https://www.amazon.com/Monoprice-DB25-Null-Modem-Adaptor/dp/B001VL8RK2
NC link DNC software(Free): CAD/CAM CNC | Downloads Page | OneCNC CAD/CAM Software

It might be related to the crossover adapter, I want to say I was able to receive originally as well but couldn't send/dripfeed until I had the pin-out corrected with the adapter. I don't have the specific null modem adapter I listed above, I got one from a buddy, but it just crosses your send/receive pins so any one will work.

Good luck.
