Honestly, I'd work on getting the drivers for that card working, serial/parallel connections through a NULL modem cable are a pain, and slow. Also you must have a null modem cable, not a standard one. Know anyone with PcAnywhere version 8.0? They used to include a yellow parallel null modem cable in the box.
