Dave: I don't think it matters how you connect to the internet; if you only
have one com port with the loopback plug installed the flow is one way, from
DXTelnet into NA ( or CT). If you have 2 free com ports and a null modem
cable you can have 2 way communication. Assign one port in DXTelnet as the
AUXCOMM and set the other up in NA ( making sure the baudrate, etc
matches). I have an Ethernet connection to a DSL modem and only one free
port; using the loopback plug I only have one way (DXT>>NA) communications.
As soon as I get the other ports installed I'll double check the 2 way talk.
