Please remember there are really two programs. The V4Chat and the
V4TNC. While now they are currently at the same rev 0.3.0.1 they
won’t always be so. The V4 TNC will eventually be used by other programs
...it is the virtual TNC and its updates and revisions are separate from the
others. The last release did change some minor things in the V4Chat as well.
(read the revision history if interested).
If you have a problem it is important to follow this procedure. I will
repeat once again for all those that are new:
1) Sync your computer clock to the internet (bring up the clock and click
the internet tab) This isn’t perfect but it gets you within a few seconds or so.
(This allows me to more easily debug two logs one from each end of the
2) Be sure you have the V4 TNC debug log enabled (read the help if you
don’t know how).
3) When you have a problem not the time as accurately as possible UTC Time
is ALWAYS used. Then describe the problem in some words as clearly as
4) Send me the V4 TNC debug.log for the date and indicate briefly what your
setup is: “Runnning WIN XP with SP1, 1000 MHz Pentium, 512 Meg Ram, SignaLink
USB sound card and TS-480 etc”
Then send the debug log AS AN ATTACHMENT to me:
rmuethingATcfl.rr.com. If both ends of a problem connection can send me
the log it is MUCH better ...I can see both ends...they are time synchronized
and logged to 10 ms.
If you can do this we can make progress... I need to see some things in
this last release that have to do with the auto calculation of round trip time
that I could not duplicate well with the simulator.
73 and Happy Fourth!
