Yeh, there are two kinds of com port pin outs, the ati straight and the intel cross wired one, and you can't always tell which one your mobo has.

If you have an external 9-pin port, meaning one that wasn't on the board, you have to make sure that they get a true serial port, and not a USB to serial port thing or a port without the cross wires. Some of these legacy devices won't work at all on those.

I hooked it to a Win 7 64 computer and heard nothing, nada, zilch, except that sad long suffering tone when it says DoubleTalk Ready when I switch it on. smile. It has its own internal drivers for dos, that was its great feature, didn't need a certain baud rate, duplex or half duplex, whatever, sent from VocalEyes.
