This is a small entry just to show you I have found a method to make communicate Applewin Via USB to a serial Arduino Uno Genuino Serial port. To build it I have used the program in the file I have attached here:

and upload it to arduino rom via Arduino ide. Then I have connected the Arduino's usb ports to computer and Arduino and started AppleWin emulator After selecting Apple //e config and COM6 in my case, you can check your Arduino COM port under the Arduino ide menu. After this I have loaded this PROTERM.dsk

disk on AppleWin and made it start. How you can see from this video:

the leds on Arduino blinks in yellow for receive and transfer date. I hope this little experiment can be useful in future for other products like, who knows make communicate directly the emulator with a Floppy disk drive for the Apple II, a modem etc.
