[nos-bbs] JNOS, KPC3+, Windows XP

I recently installed JNOS 2.0f and the SWSVPKT packet driver on a
Windows XP machine to which is connected a Kantronics KPC3+ (on COM1,
in case that becomes relevant.)

If at another station I tune to the frequency that the above setup is
on, I can see it broadcast its beacon (I have it set to do so every
five minutes, but it only ever seems to send once.)  If I try to
connect to the JNOS station I receive a successful connect message
from the TNC, but I never receive a login prompt or JNOS prompt of any

JNOS is indeed up and running on the server - the packet driver is set
up correctly and I can telnet in.  When connected via telnet I can use
the "connect" command to connect to my other packet rig.  Once
connected the messages that I try to send from my telnet session on
the JNOS server do not come through, but anything I type from the
secondary station do appear on the JNOS side.

I'm hoping that I'm just missing something in my autoexec.nos, or that
somebody here who has experience with a similar setup could give me
some pointers.  My current autoexec.nos (a slightly edited version of
what was generated by the installer) follows.
