      Sounds good but I'm using back to back TNC's. This is a test setup with server and client in same room. Do you really think that 1200 back and forward would take 15 seconds for a LM to say "No messages"?
      My experience from using outside RMS BBS sites is a lot different.

      > I notice that when I connect to my BBS or Node there are some latency issues. e.g. Listing messages may take 10 or 20 seconds and using ? to see my options when connected to node also takes some time. This is with a very clean B2B TNC connection so no Rx/Tx lost packets etc. I know the pi isn't the fastest gizmo on the block but would have expected a little crisper response ot such simple requests.
