Autobaud with Motion Architect

The user guide steps through setting a stand alone product up for a baud rate of 1200, 2400, 4800, 9600, or 19200 baud while using a terminal. This can be used on other terminal packages, but NOT on Motion Architect's Terminal.

The reason why: When Motion Architect runs, it rewrites the UART (which controls baud rate) for 9600 baud only. So even if you go into Windows and change your COM port's baud rate, Motion Architect will change it back to 9600. When pressing the space bar, as per the instructions, you will always receive a *9600 back.

To make it work, use DOS6000 or Xware. They work as advertised in the user guide.
