[nos-bbs] Confused KPC-3 KISS mode

Everything was working great -- then I tried to fix it.
Went to add the "COMM" commands to automatically put my KPC3 into KISS
mode for JNOS. I had the param 255 setting in onexit.nos to take it out
when JNOS shut down so it was only naturally that JNOS should start it up.
Of course I started out following the settings in "help comm" and that's
apparently for the AEA or older KPC TNCS. A few more bogus param
commands later and my KPC3 is acting weird. An outgoing ax25 connect
transmits ok -- but the received packets coming back from the KPC3 to
JNOS are apparently in some polled kiss mode. JNOS trace shows a
<polled> flag and 8 or so "." bytes before the data. If tried the tnc
commands for polled xkiss and checksummed xkiss but nothing seems to
work. I'm about to pop the case and do a hard reset -- pretty sure
that will fix it. Still I'm curious about what mode this is and if
there is a way to fix it from the TNC command prompt.
It's strange there's no hard reset (that I can find) anymore from the
Anybody have any suggestions here?
