Program the FT232R
As default, the FT232R acts as serial port. But Tucnak uses Libftdi to access it in bitbang mode. Default VID:PID must be changed to distinguish Davac from other USB serial ports.
I'm pretty sure you can use ft232r_prog. But I have no experiences with it. If you try it, please let me (OK1ZIA) know, I will update this information.
Unplug all other FTDI devices and press the Program All Existing Devices button.
Install USB drivers
You have nothing to do, It will work automatically. Only on specific distributions you may have to set permissions to USB device, which is normally done by udev script.
Under Windows 7 or newer, use Zadig. On XP use 2.2.
Click Options, List All Devices.
Keep libusbK and press Install Driver.
