MessageOk, Andy,The "Enable Chat" in BPQTerminal allows users to connect to your BPQTerminal to talk to you. Now that there is a chat server, maybe I should either remove or rename that option. You are not the first to have problems with it.73,John-----Original Message-----

That was it! Thank you!
I wasn't aware that having the "Enable chat" option would cause that to happen. Chat is now functioning normally and my "portable packet netbook" is running as planned.
Thank you for producing and supporting such a quality piece of software. It has already saved me many hours trying to get an HF/VHF packet node/BBS/RMS station up and running. The amount of features BPQ has is amazing given how simple it is to set up and operate. Getting to turn off RMS Packet and RMS Winmor was an unexpected bonus!
My primary BPQ station will support amateur emergency communications and traffic handling in central Virginia. The 2nd install that caused my problem is on a netbook that will provide a chat node at emergency and public service events.
Again, thanks for your software and your support. I hope I can add something to the community of users as I gain more experience with BPQ.
