Re: Newbie question...

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".

Can't the displayed name just be changed to KISS (Kenwood)?  So the only change is what the user sees when selecting KISS.
 
That's my 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 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.
