OK, thanks for the info zukow…
I had a genuine FTDI cable, and a non-genuine FTDI cable that I thought was a Prolific cable…
Now I have found a couple of genuine Prolific 2303 cables I have got it to work…Windows 10 64 bit:-
To get the Prolific 2303 USB cable to work on Windows 10 I had to download an older version of the driver (V 188.8.131.52 [24/09/2008])
Faulty (new drivers) have an exclamation mark next to the device in device manager!
Here is a link on my website, if anyone needs it:-Profilic_Win8_x64_x86.zip
To upgrade (well, downgrade) the driver…
Plug in the Prolific cable…
-> Device Manager
-> Expand Ports (COM & LPT)
-> Right click on the Prolific COM port (i.e. “Prolific USB-to-serial Comm Port (COMx)
-> Update Driver Software…
-> Browse my computer for driver software
-> Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer
-> Have Disk…
-> Browse to the above extracted zip
-> Select “ser2pl”
-> Double click on the available driver
-> Wait for driver to install -> close window.
Exclamation mark should now be gone…
I used Realterm, set the COM port to the Prolific cable and speed to 19200. (click on change and open port)
Here is a link on my website, if anyone needs it:-Realterm_184.108.40.206_Signed_Wrapper_setup.exeMorphOS 3.9:-
I used Term 4.8 from Aminet.
Here is a link on my website, if anyone needs it:-Term.lha
In Term change the settings…
-> Set serial device to “serialpl2303.device”
It's then possible to type in either terminal program and text will appear in the other terminal program.
Looking in MorphOS prefs...
This will show if the Prolific driver is installed and working, and the correct bindings to use in Term…Hardware...
-> Two Prolific 2303 cables
-> Red wires not
-> Black wires connected together (0V)
-> Green and white wires swapped over (i.e. Rx to Tx, and Tx to Rx)
Well, I hope that might help another user… :)[ Edited by Symbola 16.02.2017 - 19:33 ]
