" I don't have a UMAX or Powerport, but I do remember something about using a serial port switchbox.
" I can't vouch for the Port Juggler (I had one and it was such a disaster that I stopped using it over a year ago), but your reader also commented he couldn't get a basic switchbox to work. I don't know what error he is getting, but I have used a A/B/C/D switchbox on my S900 for over a year with absolutely no problems. He might want to check and make ABSOLUTELY certain the cable connecting the Port Juggler/switchbox to the S900 is a straight-thru. I accidentally substituted a non-straight-thru cable one time and lost access to everything on the switchbox.
" Hi: I had Port Juggler on a UMAX S900 G3/275 and it worked fine until I disconnected everything to rearrange my workspace and managed to bend the pins of the Port Juggler's connector while trying to reattach it to the port in the back. When I get the time, I'm going to try straightening out the pins and see if I can get it work. But until my cyberklutziness intervened, it was working fine.
