Inside, the unit was still sitting in its plastic-wrap on cardboard cradle. There is the more boring pages where it shows you the basic information of the device and the ability to rename or reassign the COM port numbers. It also offers a self-testing page which allows you to test the ports by digital loopback and by external loopback requiring the loopback plug wired to their specifications.
