I unsuccessfully installed WINE for running a Windows only device to PC application I wanted to use. Crossover may be easier to use. I was a fair hand running KERMIT between devices. If its not super simple I am usually stumped. Is there a "PIL-Box for Dummies" set of instructions for set up and use?

I have not used my PIL-box for a while, but last time I ran it on Mac OS X native. No Windows compatibility thingie is needed.

What you need (apart from the HPIL device emulation software on the host side) is a driver and then (optional) a configuration to improve performance.

Could you expand on this a little? I didn't do my research before purchasing Crossover from the MacWorld store yesterday. I should have figured out that Crossover needs the latest (or nearly latest) mac OS to run. Crossover would not instal on my old system. So the Crossover path is closed at the present time.

Garth, thanks for the useful tips on RS232 over IL, I'll give that a try.
