        Jim The following is a standard bpq32.cfg Kiss Port, the com port number to be used is IOADDR=1 For Com 1 =3 for Com 3 etc. the BAUD Rate is SPEED= Since you

          The following is a standard bpq32.cfg Kiss Port, the com port number to be used is IOADDR=1 For Com 1

          =3 for Com 3 etc. the BAUD Rate is SPEED=

           

          Since you did not mention if your TNC’S were a multi port I assume you are using 4 different TNC’S.

          If a TNC is a multiport TNC the IOADDR= will be the same for that TNC, you only use Channel=A  and Channel=B, etc.

           

          Remember to set the TNC’S in KISS mode before starting BPQ32 and/or Programs used by BPQ32.

           

          If you have any problems let me know.

                  I just tested your configuration, all works fine, two things I see however
                  they will not
                  Stop communications,
                  (1) you have FULLDUP=1 (Enabled) this can cause packets to collide.
                  (2) UNPROTO= Statement is missing, the only effect this will have is no
                  BTexts from BPQ32
                  will be sent.
