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

A simple stupid question. What you describe sounds very like what might 
happen if the TNC were NOT configured for KISS mode operation. Is it 
KISS or is the TNC set up as a normal terminal-mode TNC?

If the distant station is receiving a successful connect message from 
the JNOS TNC, something is wrong because a KISS TNC will not, by itself, 
respond to anything on the radio side unless the computer (JNOS) 
commands it.
