Is anyone running a PK232MBX modem with their 6000 series Flex?

Is anyone running an older modem with their 6000 series? I have an AEA PK232MBX modem that will soon have the latest firmware and DSP upgrades installed and, while I have a cable to connect it to my FT-897, I'd really like to be able to connect it to my 6500. The PK232MBX has a 5 wire connector on the rear to be connected to the radio and the pin outs are 1-Receive Audio, 2- Microphone Audio, 3- Squelch Input, 4- Ground, and, 5-PTT. 15 pin jack on the back of the radio, I can line up most of those and the 8 pin mic jack on the front is close but doesn't appear to have the same signals. So, is there anyone running these two devices together?

    I connected mine to the 15 pin accessory jack in the back.  Look at pint 2,3  for audio out, pin 1 for TX in, Pin 14 for PTT and pins 5, 6, 7, 8 & 10 for ground. But soon put it back on the shelf and went with the PC based decoders and used DAX and CAT...

    I'm using Fldigi for a lot of things (RTTY, PSK-1 and lots of RX stuff like FAX), WSJT-X for WSPR and JT-65
    I'm sure if you put out a query on what Digital software folks like you will get a lot of input. I just play a little not and then.
