I have a DR-7400, Flex 6500, and Farallon 9087 cable.  I have read the great posts for set up using the ACC port, DIGU, a Cat control port per the description.  My set up matches the screen shots from the posts.   Problem I am having is I am not keying the radio (No PTT).  I am using the latest RMS express, A pactor winlink session that initializes using Flex Radio control.  The radio control is working correctly - just missing the PTT function.  Running Smart SDR v2.3.7.  Any ideas?  Thanks in advance - Steve KM4CJ

Post your screen shots, Steve. I use my 7400 with my 6700
on a daily basis. Let's try to figure it out.

Yes - please post your screen shots. I use a DR-7800 with a 6600M (stand alone and RMS Trimode) with the same cable and it was basically plug & play after you set up the CAT cable. (SmartSDR v2.3.9.112)
