Troubleshooting Connecting/Disconnecting Realtime

Hat tip to Rebekah Lockwood – this is her advice:

My Diamante used to do that often. If I unplugged, wrote stuff, then plugged back in, there was a 50/50 chance it would dump. Support told me to do this, and it worked flawlessly. Takes a few extra seconds.

Before you unplug, hit Alt+Shift+E. Uncheck COM port. Unplug machine, go write in chambers or wherever. Come back. Plug in, check COM port. It should dump. It’s been many moons since I’ve had to do this, so I hope I haven’t forgotten any of the steps or gotten them out of order.
