[aprssig] Re: More thoughts on Connected Packet

Well,
seeing this WinLINK system, the first thing that comes to
mind here is to make something even simpler, and just an 
internet extension of AX.25.

THus the link only has two commands:
CONNECT and DISCONNECT.  Once you are connected on RF 
you get a propmpt like "Icmd:"

That stands for Internet TNC CommandPrompt:

Then you "connect" to Any callsign on the planet
just like you do with packet.  And just like APRS,
any other node that has last heard XXXXX callsign
will then pass through the connection over RF to the
end user.

Thus, just like our APRS Igate system. the Internet
is the longhaul, but it is an AX.25 end to end
connection via RF, but with the transparent internet 
in the middle.

No reason they can't be -- specially if running Linux.   telpac_node
is
trivial to install and run.  It's sitting ready in the background and
nobody
knows it's there until it's needed.
