In KISS mode, the TNC   IS NOT handling the digipeating duties.  The 
program on the PC communicating via KISS is.    To shut down 
digipeating, you have to disable it in the program, not the TNC.   

The whole point of KISS mode is for the TNC to act like a dumb modem.    
There is no command interpreter in KISS mode.  The only "command" a KISS 
TNC responds to is the one to exit KISS mode, which is usually the three 
character sequence of the ASCII characters having the values  192, 255, 
192  .  

Normally a KISS-mode program will issue these automatically when you 
exit the program.    Or you can type them in by hand from a terminal 
program.  Note that you will by typing in the blind since the KISS 
interface normally doesn't echo anything
