When launching Bricx CC will ask for specifics on tower
port (OK), brick (OK) and finally firmware. If selected
leJOS, the brick type allowed will be forced to RCX,
eliminating the possibility for rcx2.0 to be selected, so
brick will not be found. Selecting standard firmware and
rcx2.0 will let the tower search, but (as expected) errors
will occur with the firmware missmatch.

    RCX2 implies RCX2 firmware. If you are using a non-standard
    firmware then the brick type should always be RCX regardless
    of whether you have a 2.0 brick or a 1.0 brick (they are
    identical from a hardware perspective, except for the power
    jack).

    I haven't ever tried connecting to a brick running LeJos so I
    really didn't have much of a hope that it would work. One of
    these days I'll get around to figuring out why it doesn't work
    and how to integrate the Java compiler into BricxCC.
