I realize this isn't a complete solution either but in the UI-View32
directions it strongly, and in several places, recommends running the TNC in
KISS mode which will not use any of the settings in the TNC (including the
HID setting). I did mention that fact in my original email also.

Bob, I doubt that UI-View32 users are the cause of a high percentage of the
HID packets seen. If they are following the setup instructions (Yeah I know,
some don't), they will not be sending out HID packets even if their TNC has

Yes, that is all that is required.  But I think statistically,
that asking all users to make such a change usually
works out to about a 5% success rate.  So it really won't
solve the problem wholesale like we would like.  But
thanks.  Yes it would be nice if all users did this...
