Hardware, Cabling, Installations / Line level to mic input

I have a remoterig connected to a Yaesu FT-857D. Is there a configuration that would allow me to connect a line-level input instead of a microphone, with a separate PTT switch?

I'm using a RemoteRig with a Yaesu FT-857, on a local LAN. The setup worked great for a long time, but now I can almost never get the radio to turn on. When it does turn on, after a few minutes it will turn off. Here's what I know:

- When I press the power button on the radio head, I hear a beep and a click, and then nothing.

- I can access the web interfaces for both the control and radio side of the remoterig from my desktop computer, which is on the same LAN.

- From the web interfaces, all of the remoterig settings look correct, and I haven't changed them since it was working.

- The DNS Status for the control side shows the correct IP address for the radio side.

- If I disconnect the radio base and head from the remoterigs and hook them together directly, the radio works fine.

Got any idea what's wrong or how to troubleshoot this problem?

I'm using a remoterig with a Yaesu FT-857D in the remote head configuration. Until today it has worked fine. But, this morning I discovered that moving either the radio's volume control or big tuning knob causes the radio to power down.

If I remove the remoterig and connect the head directly to the radio's base, it works fine. So, the problem has something to do with the remoterig.

The only thing I changed this morning was to use an rtSystems ADMS program on my computer to configure the radio's memory. (This was done with a CAT to USB cable supplied by rtSystems.) Suspecting that might have caused the problem, I did a factory reset of the radio. Unfortunately, the reset did not fix the problem.

I checked the remoterig's configuration screens, and everything is correct.

As I understand it, I can connect a Yaesu CT-62 cable between the radio's CAT connector and the remoterig radio COM2 port, and then connect a USB cable between the remoterig control unit and my Windows computer, for logging and computer control of the radio.

How should I configure the remoterig units for this to work? Also, is there any special configuration I need to do on my computer?
