-**Tip 1:**\\ If you selected a different COM port number when configuring the Moxa adapter in Windows, you will need to select that COM port number in the GUI. However, the GUI only allows selecting up to COM6. If you assigned a higher number than port 6 to the Moxa COM port in Windows, you will need to adjust the preferences file manually to reflect this higher number. For example: If you configured the Moxa adapter to use COM port 10, you will need to enter “seriala COM10” in the preferences file.+**Tip 1:**\\ If you selected a different COM port number when configuring the Moxa adapter in Windows, you will need to select that COM port number in the GUI.

 **Tip 2:**\\ To improve boot times, turn off Appletalk. Appletalk tries to connect over the Modem port or Printer port and it will take a while to fail.  \\ **Tip 2:**\\ To improve boot times, turn off Appletalk.
