[ct-user] Interworking Win CT & DOS CT on a loop network

I asked about this before going to 5U for the contest and never got a chance
to post on the response to the lst that a few folks asked for, but as you'll
see below, Ken told me that CT Win does work fine in -loop mode. I can
confirm that - we ran one laptop this year with Win CT and the rest with DOS
CT on a loop network and all was well with the world!

Thanks everyone for the QSOs from 5U5Z.


Andy, G4PIQ.

CtWin works fine in -loop mode. I took an XP laptop to HC8N last year and
that is what we used to tie packet into the network. Just create a shortcut
to start CT and add the appropriate switched to the program line. For

"C:\Program Files\K1EA Software\CtWin\ctwin.exe" cqww  -vga -loop

If you use Win CT you can select telnet as the packet connection and connect
to your favorite cluster. NT networking can use Ethernet or a serial port,
depending on your hardware.
