[NTLK] Problem with connecting my eMate to my Mac

Hello everybody, 

my name is Fabrice Braun from Munich in Germany and I'm new on this mailing list. I recently fulfilled a wish of my heart and finally bought a second-hand eMate (I've had a MP120 for 25 years ;) 

To make sure you don't get too comfortable in this hot weather, I have a problem that I would like to share with you ;)

I connect my eMate with a serial cable, which is connected to an Ugreen USB-to-serial adapter, to my iMac (Mac OS Mojave, 10.14.6). I'm using NCX (3.0.2.) to access the eMate.

This basically works, I have managed to install Serial 115200 on the eMate to increase the transfer speed. But since that time, I strangely enough can't transfer anything to the eMate anymore. The eMate shows up in NCX and I can take screenshots and a make a backup, but when I want to install apps on the eMate there is a problem: The transfer starts, but when the loading bar is about a third of the way up, it always stops. This means that I can't install any more software. There is enough memory on the  eMate (more than 500 KB) and I tried different transfer speeds, but nothing helps.

Does anyone have a tip despite the heat ;)?
