    Default Mori-Seiki SH-503 Mapps i (Fanuc 16i-ma backend) Comms settings need some decoding.

    Hi guys. I am having some difficulty figuring out what some of these settings mean.
    I understand that the fanuc/mapps system has a parameter channel setting of 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4 where 4 directs the cnc to read/write backend memory from/to the memory card and 3 directs the cnc to read/write via rs232C.

    But even after setting that to 3, there is a port 1 and port 2 option. Are those two different physical connectors? The only rs232c port I can find anywhere is right smack in front of the operators panel.

    Also, can anyone help me understand xon/xoff vs rts/cts as the rts one never shows up on any of the terminal (dnc interfaces, hyperterminal etc...) interfaces yet there are usually a "hardware" or "software" handshake option. Do some of the options on the screenshot attached indicate if some of those settings are hardware or software handshake applicable?

    How can I tell if my code has a cr symbol and a line feed if all I ever see if the text on the next line?

    What the heck is cs off and cs on? None of my manuals describe anything on this screen. My manualz don't even make mention of the "remote" option at the top.only one machine has this remote option amd the other ones dont. The screens are identical other than that. What does this remote function do? I hope Indon't require that to be able to drip feed. So far I cannot drip feed from the memory card. But I can read and write to it. Next task is to read and write from a computer via rs232.

    Model wait?

    Null out = 0. What are those two?

    The stuff on the right I have seen as variables in a dnc setup before either.

    And lastly eia iso ascii.... I only ever see UTM8 or something like that as an option on Hyperterminal. Anyone know the ins and outs of these settings?

    Thanks for the help guys!!
