OK, I think I understand it. I was aware of the limitations on WinXP and
running CW out from NA to the rig. While I don't do a whole lot of CW
'tests right now, eventually I will be. I suppose that I can do CW "the old
- fashioned way" <grin>. My main concern was two-fold : one, to link up two
'puters in a network to use NA and two, to be able to connect to the 'net
for access to a telnet cluster. I have NA talking to my K2, so that is OK.
I did look and see that there were I/O boards still available that had 2
serial ports on them. I thought that I with a minimum of 3 serial ports on
each machine, I could use one for rig control, one for the NA network and
the other one (on each machine) would be used for the WinTelnetX in/out. I
do have a dual serial board that was in an old machine here that I may
"experiment with" and see what I can do. While I don't have the second rig
yet, I can see if I can use the dual I/O board to loop back WinTelnetX.
Hopefully that will give me telnet access in/out as well as rig control.
Will have to do that later on in the week after I get the SSB board in and
checked out in the K2.
