But I have one C2N232 left, which I could use for testing c2nload. Good news: I managed to work around some bugs of USB to RS-232 adapters. Adapters based on the Prolific PL-2303 should now work on GNU/Linux and Windows, and adapters based on the FTDI FT232 should work on Windows XP. The Linux ftdi_sio driver doesn't seem to implement any flow control, or even tcdrain() or a properly blocking write(). The driver has not been updated for some 2 years. I guess most FT232 users are only using it for receiving data, which should work better. The Linux pl2303 driver works with CTS/RTS handshaking only. On Windows, both adapters work with XON/XOFF handshaking. I will release new versions of the software as soon as I get a chance to test it with a C2N232I.
