I am using the 1258 pair for my Yaesu 857D.  The Yaesu is at a tower connected to my YT-100 tuner.  No problems there.
I am exhausted trying to get any form of memory control for the Yaesu to work.  HRD, Chirp...(would try FTBasic but locked without purchase) I tried a Linux Ubuntu box there with the Yaesu RT USB cable.  Hours of settings using chirp......no go. 
I have read in this forum where the control end can simply connect to a computer on com 2 and I can set the 1258 to Logical parallel with Com zero.  I have used FTBasicMMO tool (free) to monitor the usb port on the front of the unit and data just pours......but evidently nothing intelligent.  I have purchased a serial com to usb converter.  Also no luck.

Surely.  Surely, there is a specific manner to make this work.  I don't care what adapter I need or what software....I just want the thing to work.  I have the I/O connected to read the led on the YT-100 Tuner and even push the button.  That works great! Full Remote head, no problems. 

Please assist with absolute, detailed, non assuming instructions to make this work.

Thanks very much,

I am trying the Valley Systems Cable.  Will report how it goes.
