- Dec 18, 2005A new beta release of BPQ32 is available in the files section:
This release adds a new feature, BPQTNC2, providing a TNC2 like
interface to the switch via virtual communications ports. However at
this time the feature only works with Windows-XP. It it is expected
this feature will be extended to Windows-2000 soon. Later BPQTNC2
will be enhanced to add a real communitions port functional with
The purpose of this new interface is to allow user programs which
expect to communicate with a real TNC2 via a real communications port
to use BPQ32 without program changes.
BPQ32 has become very solid. I have been running it around the clock
with multiple programs accessing it via the AGWtoBPQ interface for
months without failure.
You should not hesitate trying it.
AR-Cluster sysops who have been using the prior BPQ32 with the OCX
interface will find a significant advantage in moving from that to the
new AGWtoBPQ interface, in that they can now close BPQ32, reconfigure
it, restart it, all without dropping their telnet users. This is not
possible when using the OCX interface. Additionally AR-Cluster can
now initiate connections to remote radio users, something that with
the OCX interface would often crash AR-Cluster.
When the virtual serial interface is extended to Windows-2000 a new
beta will be promptly released.
