Okay, you packet junkies, I have a question about the internal TNC. It have an MFJ-1270B that I am using to connect to my 710G. On the 710G I have CONOK ON and BBS ON. I can connect to my 710G but then I get an RNR after connection (Receive Not Ready.) This is because I have nothing connected to me serial adapter on the 710G, it's just sitting there, and the serial buffer gets full. But... shouldn't the 710G be able to operate stand-alone and accept a small number of BBS messages without being connected to a computer? I thought it had enough internal memory to store BBS messages. Is there a way to flush the serial buffer when a computer isn't connected? Maybe I misunderstand the BBS ON option.
