But what is the same thing? My idea was a bit more technical: I'll hook a
second PC with two RS232 ports to the other line and with a selfwritten
program I'll make a copy of the transfer. The program should not only copy
the data but also tell me in what order each byte was transmitted in respect
to each other.

The problem is that I have no idea where to look. When searchengines turn me
down, my next step is to ask some friends, what I just did :)
But it seems I have to start soldering a Y-cable and to do some programming.

Oregon Scientific, model AM888.
