That worked. Also I was using UI-VIEW at some stage also to send the TNC
into KISS

It seems when you leave UI-VIEW it exists KISS

So I used UI-VIEW to get into KISS, then turned off the TNC and exited

I then made the changes as below and it worked

Maybe i should be using this ?


; PE1DNN 25.12.2002:
; Simplified KISS.INI, just try a number of ways to get the TNC to KISS,
; if it succeeds then the TNC will ignore the rest anyway...
; Try each method twice just in case there are synchronisation problems
; Try different methods; TF, TAPR/AEA and KAM

No, DIGI_NED sends some data to the TNC to switch it to KISS. It looks
like the TNC doesn't interpret the commands to switch to KISS but instead
transmits them...

Maybe you can switch the TNC to KISS manualy before starting the floppy to
see if that helps.

In the directory KISS you will find a KISS_DNN.INI, this contains the
commands which are send to the TNC to switch it to KISS. Aparently it
doesn't send the right command for your TNC. Just change it with a text

Oh, that's easy, just erase "dnconfig.bat" in the root of the floppy. This
batch just sets an environment value which is used by "run.bat" in the
digi_ned directory.

Kind regards,
