Thanks for coming back to me Jason
Familiar with cpan etc all good there
Thanks for the heads up on the perl module.
I will look see what goodies lurk there
I should be able to back to back the two TNCs I have and test them over audio
Got two pi's and TNCx
Ok on your LCD I found the same
Yes I assume on Wednesday we can give one Pi a TCP/IP address and the other one as well and use the TNCx boards to ping
Ax0 is the kiss interface from memory
Need a kiss attach statement
Do you know of a command line ish kiss to Igate software
Set up a simple ISS Igate.
Can also do it with SDR dongles
I can do perl to Igate that's easy
Will have a go
