ArduinoISP RTS and DTR

I am trying to use ArduinoISP on an Arduino Nano instead of an FTDI to program an ESP8266 because I can't get an FTDI chip nor breakout easily. I am following the Blink instructions located here and it requires that I connect to both the RTS and DTR pins of an FTDI chip. I can find definitions and locations using ArduinoISP for the MOSI, MISO, and SCK pins but nothing on which pins are RTS and DTR, which the Blink connections require. Does anyone know how I access those pins on an Arduino Nano?


You are correct! I found that if I just took the Arduino chip out of service by routing RESET to GND I could use the tutorial here to upload sketches!
