hi Tom - It sounds like the problem is when you are trying to use packet
and want to use one PC as the connection to packet, and then have the other
two connect to that PC. Right?

I don't do packet often, but I have figured out one way that works for me.
I run the VE7CC ccuser program on the "master" PC and set up filtering
there how I want it. ccuser then acts as a server for all 3 PCs, and takes
writelog out of the server role. Here:


It looks daunting but read the docs, it's easier than it looks.

Then I connect the master via telnet using the IP address
The ":7300" is the default port in ccuser for connecting packet, if my
memory is right. (If not, use the right number ;) ) You may need to enable
telnet in ccuser. It's in the Ports menu.

Then using ipconfig in a command line or drilling into the network setup, I
find out what the IP address is of the master PC. In the other two PCs I
then connect to packet via telnet using that address; e.g.
Don't forget the port, whatever it is.

I'm doing this from memory, apologies if I have a detail wrong. Read the
ccuser docs. ;)

This works for me and hopefully is what you were looking for... 73 jeff wk6i
