I am new to programming doors also.  But, the System Operator of the system
I enjoy scarfed me a copy of X00 and Quick Door software.  I went and
snarfed a null modem cable and hooked it up between COM1 and COM2 and run
Remote Access on COM1 and use my terminal program on COM2.  BTW, I do this
with Desqview.  Makes it a heckuva lot easier than uploading the new
version of the program just to find that the last bug you fixed caused three
new ones to appear!
