  Aha!  Another person with the exact same problem.  BTW, I was using 3.51.

  Here's the fix:  check your serial cable.  I was using a generic Macintosh-
modem cable.  However, this particular cable didn't carry one line (I forgot)
and some others were not connected correctly.

  Check the numerous postings here in the past about the serial port hook-

  Once I made a new serial cable for the unixpc-mac connection, it works

  Say, MGR on my macintosh is interesting with the programs running on
the 7300..
