      If you can type commands to the TNC and see the results, then your
      data communications connections to the TNC are working. It sounds like
      whoever manufactured the TNC screwed up and put the wrong connector on
      for the port type. Kenwood did that with the D700.

      Whatever the case may be, if you can type and it responds, it's working.

      The radio will never transmit into your computer though. The radio
      transmits out the antenna port, and unless you connect the antenna
      port to your computer somehow, that won't happen.

      The only transmitting into your computer should be from the TNC, and
      if you swap pins there, you won't blow anything up.
