When shipped from the factory the MicronEye has been set to operate at a baud rate of 153,600 bits/second. Also the MicronEye program expects the MicronEye to go in slot 2. The baud rate will not normally be changed by the user. However, since a slot may currently contain another card it is helpful to be able to specify an alternate slot for the MicronEye. It is usually desirable to save the current setup to disk after modifying the slot or baud rate since these changes are fairly permanent in nature.
