Using "Instrument Manager", "My Configuration", "Refresh" did in fact show
serial1 and serial2, and since then we no longer get an error message about
"...not configured...Error 801", but we still have no serial communication

can establish serial communications without any problem (using a motion
control package). Any further suggestions are greatly welcome.
