I'm currently testing unixnpi under WinNT, running at 115200. Works without
problems (I'm currently transferring the WordNewt dictionary...). You need
cygwin ( installed, then it's simply a matter of typing "make" on the commandline
:) The only change was that I need to modify the file unixnpi.c, line 57, from
        strcpy(newtDevInfo.devName, "/dev/newton");
        strcpy(newtDevInfo.devName, "/dev/ttyS0");
because it seems not to be possible to link the device to /dev/newton under

Hmm. Someone should write a GUI wrapper for unixnpi. No, don't look at me :)
