Seeeduino stalker programming problems

I’m new with seeeduino. I bought a stalker, but I have difficulties in programming it.

  1. To interface it with the pc I’m using a MAX3232, wich has demonstrated to work with other applications. I didn’t connect the DTR pin: where should I connect it ?
  2. I loaded the example “blink” in arduino.exe and compiled it
  3. I selected arduino 2009 with ATmega168
  4. I selected the right com (com9 in my case: it works with other applications and the same MAX3232)
  5. I press “upload” in the arduino.exe. A green led lights immediatly up. A red led blinks once and lights up definitively after more or less 1 s
  6. I actually see square waves (0-5 V) at the rx pin of the stalker (the one near the ground), but I don’t see any led blinking
  7. I see nothing at all at the tx pin (the one after the rx, near the +V)
  8. The arduino.exe, after a while, tells me that :
    avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
    avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51

Could please someone give me a hint of what should I do to program the stalker ?

Thanks a lot in advance

Please use the FT232 instead of MAX3232 for USB2Uart transform
