Re: Newbie question...

Yeah, and hindsight is always 20/20.  I did the KISS when it was the only mode supported and Kenwood is all I had access to.  And since then, I haven't figured out how to change it without breaking all of the installations out there that are using a KISS-type port.  Eventually I'll get an inspiration.

I would suggest not naming the Kenwood specific configuration as KISS for a start. Most implementations that have a KISS mode configuration have it set to work in KISS mode. Something for a specific hardware configuration like the Kenwood radio would probably be better labelled Kenwood KISS. 

Clarity is a wonderful thing to strive for. 

Hoping everyone stays safe, healthy and sane this non-traditional holiday season.

Good to know that was it.  I really need to figure out how to document the legacy "KISS" mode better somewhere.

Thanks for the info and explanation on "COM4 OK"

You were correct that I had selected KISS rather than Simply(KISS).  Created a new port using Simply(KISS),  [and deleted the old one]  and PERMed  INTFACE KISS  into the KPC2.  Appears to be working on RF channel as well as Internet now.

A lot to learn in switching software.

Thanks for your help and your work on this.
