Direct connect Adam to PC via Adam Link Modem

This is relatively easy to do. This web page (http://www.jagshouse.com/modem.html) describes how to create a simple circuit to simulate a phone line. Once you have this you can plug the Adam Link modem into it and it into a PC. On the PC start HyperTerminal (or other terminal program).

To connect:

  1. On Adam set modem parameters using AdamLink to 8 characters, 1 stop bit, no parity
  2. On PC type ATE1X1 then enter to the modem. This will enable modem commands being echoed to screen and tells modem to ignore lack of dial tone
  3. On PC type ATDT123456789 then enter to dial modem, a long number gives you a few extra seconds to get to the Adam
  4. On Adam select Answer then select Online

Once you have connect the connection will remain if you reset the Adam to load CP/M or SmartBasic
