MAC OSX High Sierra (10.13)
There is a connectivity issue with C-PEN Core for MAC / TS1 / MAC OSX High Sierra.
The problem is that unlike previous versions of OSX the operating system allocates the TS1 device if it is connected prior to C-PEN Core starting up. Whether this is a bug or a feature in High Sierra is yet to be established – but it is reported to Apple.
This should force OSX to release the TS1 allocation and allow it to connect to C-PEN Core.
