    Yes, you can edit the XML file, but it becomes much easier if the port already exits.  Sounds like you do have a port already.   Couple of things first:

      Couple of things first:
         Are you sure the COM1 file is linked to the proper device?
            typically something like /dev/ttyUSB0
             If Com1 points to the INCORRECT device, you can add a second link (COM2) to the correct /dev ffile.
      The port should look something like this:
         <RFPort Name="D710">
            <Protocol>KISS</Protocol>                               You said this was the protocol
            <Device>COM2:9600,N,8,1</Device>               Set the same as you {home}/.wine/dosdevices           
            <OpenCmd>~!!0</OpenCmd>                            These should match the WIKI for D710 KISS mode of 
            <CloseCmd>~!!0</CloseCmd>                            These should match the WIKI for D710 KISS mode of 
      The other part that helps is editing the registry according to the WIKI (don't have access to my Linux box to help here).
      Hope this helps.

      Thanks for your reply. Followed your instruction to the letter but still no coms to the D710.

      After the second command executed I got:

      ln: com1: File exists

      I then fired up APRSIS32 and under configure > New Port I chose KISS and then in the new window I chose COMn Serial but the window this is in is so small and cannot be made larger. I cannot see where I can set the D710 to COM1.

      I used to run APRSIS32 under windows 7 but I cannot remember where the setting for COM1 was then.

      Maybe it is somewhere there but I cannot see it because that window is so small.

      Just wondering if I can set the port to COM1 by editing the XML file???

      Your help is much appreciated,
