I would have to say something is not set up correctly with AGWPE. I 
would help if you could give us some information as to the settings in 
AGWPE, what port the computer is using, etc.  I have an KPC3+ and AGWPE, 
so you could probably just duplicate my settings and just adjust for the 
comm port the TNC is connected to.

"One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything. Never!" -- Winston Churchill
