HP 110+



#9

Hi,

I have recently aquired a HP 110+, and it has a HP-IL Interface on it. I was wondering if there was any HP-IL software that will run on it (Trans41?). I software packages that can act as a controller, talker, and emulate mass storage functions. Does anyone know of any software (free, preferably) that will perform these functions on this system? If so, where can I get it?

I can't seem to get Trans41 to work on it, so unless you have a solution to that, I don't think it is an option.

In adition, since I rarely mess with these devices, does anyone know how I would go about transfering a application to it? Also, (off-topic somewhat) does anyone know of a standard terminal application I can get for this little laptop that can communicate with CISCO routers? (This requires little more than the basic functionality you find when setting up a connection in windows HyperTerminal.


Thank you, and I appologize if this is a little off-topic

Hi Ray, you may be interested by my Emu41 ported to the HP110+, see:

Yes, that would be excellent. My main question is, how would you go about transfering files to this thing? Through the serial port?

Help appriciated,

If you mean transfering the Emu41.exe and ROM image files, you can use serial port, or (easier) HP9114 disc drive if you own it.

Note that Emu41 for HP+ is a special version (regular Emu41 will not run properly). Contact me for availability (see my email addr on my site).

Ok, I think you've sold me... However, I can't seem to figure out how to USE the serial port to transfer data. I have no clue how to use the built in Terminal Utility... Help please? (I'm clueless when it comes to serial, what programs and/or cables would I need?)

Thanks in advance.

One thing to be aware of is that the HP110 and HP110+ serial ports, while being DE9 sockets, do not use the PC/AT pinout. You need to make up a special cable.

The 'HP end' really needs to be a moulded plug cover to fit correctly, so I ended up buying a DE9 plug to DE9 plug cable, cutting it in half, and soldering DB25 plugs to the cut ends. Of course you might need null-modem adapters, etc as usual to link this cable to a PC (or whatever).

I can look up the HP110/110+ (they're the same) pinouts in the service manual if anyone needs them.

That would be a great, if you could get the pinouts for me. Thanks for your help.

OK, here you are. 1=DTR, 2=TxD, 3=RxD, 4=RTS, 5=CTS, 6=DSR, 7=Gnd, 8=CD, 9=RI
It's wired as a terminal (DTE), so pin 2 (for example) is an output.
