Forcing/pre-set RTS and/or DTR to user levels
« on: January 26, 2019, 11:43:36 PM »

Is there a way to force these signals in a default state (provided handshake is set to none)?
I know they can be programmed, but I'd like to pre-set them while running standard serial terminal software.

Unfortunately these can't be set to particular start-up states in the device itself and so you would need to configure them from the terminal once the port is open. Many terminals have check boxes or menu options for this which can set/clear the lines manually but only once the port is open.
