That says:
] NCU buffer for the speed is only 5 bytes long (plus the null terminator).
] NCU tries to talk at 11520 if you hack the registry

I'm not too worried about the buffering because I got NCU running at
Realtime priority on a 800Mhz Win2000 machine, so I think the speed will be

However, I can't get NCU to even try at 115200. If I put this number in the
registry, NCU quits immediately after startup. Apart from NCU, is there
another Windows program that might work at 115200?

I confirm this: if my Newton is connected to the power adapter, I can
successfully download things as big as 4Mb.
