[aprssig] Fw: Some obscure APRS client questions

Getting back to testing, whether I use back-to-back TNCs or null-modemed serial ports, one end still needs a test simulator that will exercise all the appropriate test cases. Connecting my app to another copy of itself (or any other APRS client app) doesn't prove compliance.

Anybody have such a test driver? Or do we need to write one?

Speaking as a sysadmin of an email server, hotmail is the spawn of
satan; however, you say:

Not two TNCs, two serial ports.  Connect 'em to each other with a null
modem cable.  Lie to the application(s) and say you've got KISS TNCs

OT USB or Tracker2.
