Depending upon your computer's operating system, you have a couple of options. Proscan works on Windows 8.x. Butel's ARC 250 will work on operating systems before 8.x.

Here's the cabling set-up I use:

1. Plugable USB to RS-232 DB9 Serial Adapter
Amazon.com: Plugable USB to RS-232 DB9 Serial Adapter (Prolific PL2303HX Rev D Chipset): Computers & Accessories
2. Null Modem Adapter (from Radio Shack)
3. Gender Adapter (from Radio Shack)
4. 6 foot Serial Cable (had it for years and don't remember where I got it, but I'm sure Radio Shack would have them).

ProScan
