I need a usb to serial RS232 DB9 adapter to connect a printer. I bought an adapter with a very common-used Prolific PL2303XHD chip, but I have many many troubles with flowcontrol. I tried to switch to hardware than to software but this adapter always fails to manage flowcontrol and fills the printer's input buffer. I'm quite sure the problem is in this adapter because I also try with a pci serial board and with the same configuration the connection works stopping its flow while the printer are printing a long job. I tried to change the usb adapter, I bought another one, but inside I found the same chip and obviously it has the same problem. Do you have any experience with flowcontrol and usb-serial adapter? I can use both XON/XOFF or CTS/RTS flowcontrol.
