11283RE: [BPQ32] TermTCP for Andriod
- Sep 12, 2013Thanks, Dave.The legend on the return key should change to "Send" (or something similar - on one of my devices is shows an image of an envelope!) when the cursor is in the input box.I had considered adding a "Send" button to the top row, but had hoped to avoid it. It is beginning to look like it may be needed for some devices.Once I get all the basics working, I'll look into adding things like a monitor and multiple hosts.73, John

Subject: Re: [BPQ32] TermTCP for AndriodJohn,
Thanks for all the time and effort you put into this project.
I have installed BPQTermTCP on my ASUS ME172V 7" tablet running Android 4.1.1. The tablet supports two different on-screen touch keyboards, ASUS Keyboard and Google Keyboard. The tablet behaves the same in either keyboard mode.
I can connect normally and receive 'Connected To TelnetServer' as expected. I can enter text on the input line and edit normally. I touch the on-screen carriage-return key to send the text but it is not sent. There is no response from the BPQ switch and the input line is not cleared. (Maybe a dedicated SEND button???)
The only comment I would make on the interface is the one host setting. We had discussed the eight selections for Windows and I am sure this is a limitation on the Android implementation. I can access the BPQ web page using the tablet so I do have a functional connection. However, I would like to use the BPQTermTCP app since it is much more direct.
That's my feedback on the thread. Thanks again, take some time to go sailing...

Subject: [BPQ32] TermTCP for AndriodThe saga continues!I've borrowed my daughter's Nexus 7 (Andriod 4.3) and this verison works on that and my HTC phone (Andriod 2.3).Just to be clear, this program is designed to work with BPQ32/LinBPQ, connecting to the port defined in FBBPORT. It may work with other systems, but that isn't supported.73, John
