    i compiled and installed ser2net 2.5 successfully on winXP under cygwin. the program runs silently and opens a listen port as expected. here's my ser2net.conf:

    127.0.0.1,4711:telnet:600:/dev/ttyS0:115200 8DATABITS NONE 1STOPBIT

    the sending device (mini pc) is connected with null-modem-cable to the only 1 serial port on the windows box (RS232). here's what i'm doing:
    1) starting ser2net
    2) connect to listenport with telnet (on localhost)
    3) power on the mini pc...
    4) ... here i've expected output from mini pc. but no luck. tried several combinations but never saw anything.

    can someone give me a clue what i've missed? that would be great!
    thanks in advance.

    IMPORTANT info:
    when using the windows program "Hyperterminal" i can communicate with the mini pc, so it is sending/accepting stuff.
