I have a problem with wtRotators.


In Controllers/Add I select prosistel, add port COM4 and fill with the
antennas info


When I press OK button the notebook reset, after a big blue display with
some text appears for less that 1 second so I couldn´t read it.


Now my computer is bad. Always I want to open Win Test or ARSVCOM with the
RS232-USB cable connected appears this blue windows and notebook reset.

address because packets destined for that address never leave the PC (they
don't go out over the network).   So instead, you should be using the
