DTALK with Aries 3.32 & higher firmware

Firmware 3.32 (released Aug 13, 2012) changes the RSMODE default from 0 ( auto detection ) to 1 ( RS 232).

This reduces the risk drive powering up into RS-485 mode and preventing RS-232 communication.

However, this does mean that anyone using ACR9000 and DTALK will need to set the RSMODE back to 0 (auto-detect) or 2 (RS485). This can be done in the terminal emulator in Aries Support Tool software.
