i want to connect my 6500 to AT-AUTO   using my COM PORT 
will I need  serial interface    between the computer and the tuner?
trying to use DDUtil    config com #1    in repeater 1  
9600 baud  (as in at-auto) and ck palstar  

but do i need a interface in the rs232 line 

flex 6500   1.3 software 
windows 7  on i7 machine 
latest  DDUtil 3.0.9

i have nothing else  running with DDUtil 
the only other  i have in  ddutil   is  :
features, radio slect   checked signature  and  port com7 
from  smart cat  com7-17 (shared)

    Yes, you will need a physical com port from the computer to the Palstar. Ddutil has detailed setup instructions online. Just read the Ddutil manual.
