Not totally different - just a different presentation.  The existing
scheme does indeed provide access to JNOS via the web but it's still
just the command line interface.  (Note to self - turn on JNOS web
access...)   The TNOS version provides a true point and click Web

I need also to revisit this.  It might be the same.  I'd like to
attach a local TCP aprs interface, from UI-View or Xastir for example,
and use the regular JNOS commands there.

Maybe that's going to work.    Was that with the VC Express tools or a
commercial version?     I'd like to make use of some of the JNOS

Free..   Pretty much the same as the *NIX capabilities I'm assuming.
I also don't know how much of the Windows interface that provides...
I'd love to see JNOS talking with MSAgent...
