Serial Communication B-168 and Arduino

I have been working with the B-168 the Pololu USB Programmer and Arduino. I am trying to get serial communication between the B-168 and my computer through the USB Programmer. I have connected wires from PD0 and PD1 to the respective RX/TX on the programmer. I am getting nothing. Anyone have any experience with this and could point me in the right direction?

Here are the errors im getting.

at java.awt.event.InvocationEvent.dispatch(Unknown Source)
at java.awt.EventQueue.dispatchEvent(Unknown Source)
at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpOneEventForHierarchy(Unknown Source)

Did you move the mode jumper from the programming mode position to the USB-to-serial mode position? More info here.


Ok now I have communication established but I am getting something that looks like a ASCII return. I will keep working on this.
