When using the RS232/PPI Multi-Master cable, zero modem cable or Ethernet connections, you can use only the "real" interfaces for project transfer.
"Real" interfaces are interfaces without prior implementation over USB. This means that you cannot use any "USB to serial" or "USB to Ethernet" adapters.
