1. I am in dire need of step by step directions to get it working. Every port setting, 1-8 says port in use. I occasionally connects on port 5, but just times out.
2. Can the mini be connected directly to the serial port on my desktop, then plugged into a 6 wire CAT5 to the panel's onboard plug? If not, how can I do it, the computer is some distance from the panel. There was, or still is a Napco GEM-RS232Kit for Cat5. Is this the way to go, where can I get one at a reasonable price, or is there a better way?
3. Thinking seriously about going with a P9600, anybody have one for sale at a very reasonable price?
Thank you all.
