I finally got this connection going, and thought
I would document it for myself, and put it on the
reflector in case anyone might find it useful. Thanks
to W0YK for setting me off in the right direction.
I'm no expert at this for sure, and there may be better
ways to do this, but this one works for me.

Wintelnetx to TRLog
This describes how to connect a windows computer running Wintelnetx to
1. Connect the two computers together using a serial port on each
machine. Use a null modem
cable to make the connection. The text below assumes that the windows
computer will connect
to na2na.net and output data on com1. Make changes as required.
2. In TRLog, set EIGHT BIT PACKET PORT = TRUE
Set PACKET PORT to whatever serial port you are hooking up.
3. On the windows computer, my computer/control panel/system/device
com1 to port settings 2400, 8, none, 1, Xon/Xoff. If the TRLog computer
is running Windows,
do the same on that machine.
3. On the windows computer, start wintelnetx
4. Setup/add new/com port:
5. Setup/add new/network connect:
my call inet
route from na2na
route to com1
check the two way box
7. File/save as
Save as trlog.ini in the folder Wintelnetx/ini
8. Connect the windows computer to the internet
9 In wintelnetx, the drop-down box should show the choices ALL, COM1,
10 select com1, and hit the CONNECT button. A com1 window will open and
show the com
11. Select na2na in the drop-down box and hit the CONNECT button. A na2na
open, and, after logging in, dx spots will start appearing on the windows
hopefully, in TRLog.
The next time you start wintelnetx, do file/open, look in the
wintelnetx/ini folder, select trlog.ini,
and all the parameters will load automatically. Hit the connect button
for the port and for the
Trlog mailing list
