Putty & Prop Plug -- what is the highest Baud rate feasible?
I'm messing about with a serial driver I'm writing and I'm trying to push the speed up to it's maximum Baud rate. I'm using a Prop Plug (circa 2009 ish) and Putty for my terminal software.
Now, Putty seems to be very happy writing out data at 2,000,000 baud, but push it any further than that and the actual rate measured suddenly falls back to what appears to be 115200 Baud.
I think that the Prop Plug is not to blame (because all the bytes do seem to appear, just at a much lower rate than expected).
Can someone just quickly check to see how fast they can run Putty's serial Baud rate?
I'm using 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, no flow control.
If it turns out to be a bug / limitation in Putty then I'll have to find a faster terminal program, which is fine I guess.
