Yes, it is identical. I was the original beta tester on the

it "the Frisbie port". :-)

You may need a null modem. Try swapping pins 2 and 3.
I can send you an genuine Andromeda DB25 adapter if you give

They changed between the original Rev. A and final Rev. F
boards. Which one do you have?
I can send you a copy of the manual, complete with all my
editorial comments written on it.
