How to connect a robot to a computer? I have a Fanuc S-5 robot that I need to connect to a PC. On the manual it says that it can be done with a CRT/KB using Karel programming. I have built up a cable connecting the CRT/KB port on the robot controller to the computer but the PC fails to see it. Is there any software I can download or any other way to "introduce" the robot to the computer? Thanks.

@brandiex: Are you sure that the Rx and Tx signals are crossed in the CRT/KB cable? If so, try setting up a terminal window at 9600bps and sending: ESC+'['+Function Number+'~' to activate a function. Refer to your manual for other commands.
