491Re: Trouble with "Real" Port
- Jul 8, 2006I am running everything on on win98 box. I have serial port 1 in KISS
mode for the VHF TNC, and port 2 for the HF TNC, and port 3 for the
scanner interface to the radio.
There is no port 4, and ports 5 and 6 on are a PCI expansion card, and
both ports are connected via a null modem cable.
I define port 5 as a "Real" port in BPQTNC32, and then I set Winlink
to use port6.
Seems to be halfway working. Characters are getting dropped. This
seems to be the only problem I am having. I have tried lowering the
FIFO buffer, and I have also tried lower baud rates.
