If it were just a display name, that would have happened a long
time ago. But there is no "display" name. The name in the
drop-down is the actual port type that is stored directly in the
XML configuration file and is used to switch to the proper section
of code to support the port.
So, changing the "name" would invalidate all of the port
configurations that currently ask for "KISS".

thought, but it's never just that simple.
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

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

Thanks for the info and

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.
