Yeah.  Some people here will tell you to do the "OPEN COM"
thing... well that usually works and you always have to
open the com (for a terminal programme) or at least
normally and if (big IF) you're wroking under a fossilized
modem (ie a door in  a BBS) then you have to do this "ECHO
ATZ > COM1" so it goes directly to the comport and not
through to the other side...  I just learned that a little
while ago.
