Sounds good to me.
Another trick for your collection... You can make a Y on the
RS-232 cables so a second box can listen to a local clock.
(Only one side gets to talk to the clock, but both can hear it.)
It works just fine - the listen-only side hears the responses
from the side that talks. At least as long as the other system is
You can also use a scope to check the timing. :)
