Re: AGW vs. KISS over IP

Ignore me - messed up right side AGW port. I Had it swapped with IP.
I knew the data looked strange.
Issue is only logging. KISS IP shows received data, but no TX data when a radio is connected.

I have mentioned issues with log windows and KISS ports over IP. Now I was able to try a few things with 2 active channels on 1 sound card that actually interface with APRSIS32, but as 2 ports. I am confused as to a few things:
1. Why AGW does not TX on the Right channel, but KISS_IP does?
2. Logging acts different in AGW than in KISS_IP.
3. Logging acts differently for KISS_IP if radio is connected to the sound card channel?
Lots of info, but I hope it help find reasons.
I purchased the FePi sound card (stereo output and stereo input board that is a "hat" for the Pi), and the Nexus DR-X (digital radio cross patch). The Nexus provides 2 "data jacks" that are designed to have access to the left LineIn/LineOut and connect them to different radios. The Nexus Pi Distro provides drivers and many digital mode applications - including Direwolf.
With this setup, I run 2 separate instances of Direwolf (separate terminals and configurations).
One uses the left audio channel, the other uses the right.
As I was experimenting with this configuration, I noticed that if I connect to them using AGW, the right side does not go into TX. If I switch to KISS over IP, everything works properly.
I think the TX issue is something in my setup (CONFIRMED!!!).
HOWEVER, in trying to troubleshoot the issue, I setup 4 ports and enable logging on each:
1. DW_KISS_Lt IP 8010
2. DW_KISS_Rt IP 8011
3. DW_AGW_Lt AGW 8000
4. DW_AGW_Rt AGW 8001
1. DW_KISS_Lt IP 8001
2. DW_KISS_Rt IP 8011
3. DW_AGW_Lt AGW 80004. DW_AGW_Rt AGW 8010
If I enable only 1 and 2, clear the log window, and hit <Transmit>
everything looks normal, both TX as expected. Neither post anything to the log.
If I disconnect the radio from the left - Left logs. (Same with only Left connect to radio - Rt logs)
If I disconnect both from the radio, Both log.
If I enable only 3 and 4, clear the log window, and hit <Transmit>Operates as expected.
