I know that the octopus is coming with its own firmware and its own 
software libraries to control it from the PC.

Nevertheless my goal is to first gather some experience with the 
ATmega128 that it contains. Therefore I loaded my own AVR program 
instead of the firmware.

Actually the program does not behave as I am expecting: My program is 
just be able to send characters and to receive some. To see the result I 
write the bits "PORTC = 0xEF;" which drives the LEDs.

My Code was successfully charged on the Octopus Board.

For the application I have a Hterm on PC instaliert.

The Octopus Device ist recognized on my Pc. Because on System>System 
Control>Hardware-Manager  I can see "LibUSB-Win32Devices" --> "OtopusUSB 
Interface Converter and I/O Extension".

although that, when I write the name of the port "LibUSB-Win32Devices" 
or "OtopusUSB Interface Converter and I/O Extension" on my Hterm, he 
doesn't recognize it. I don't know witch Port the Octopus have. Or I 
must proceed in another art.

Please help me I am a beginner and want to work mit Octopus.

thanks for reading.

There is an octopus forum here---> http://forum.embedded-projects.net/
where your questions will be seen and answerded by octopus experts.

so long

I posted my problem there. It has a long time but never reponces.
And when I peruse the "Octopus" forum, I find there only problems which
were never answered.
