Hello All,

I'm trying to see if I can get an AX.25 TNC to work on my IC-7100 via RRC. The 7100 does not have a built in TNC, so I use a software TNC (direwolf).

Direwolf does not know how to key the radio via CAT, so I use a client called "CAT7200" that connects to the com port of the 7100, and generates a new virtual com port that has a few of the CAT commands swapped out so that direwolf knows how to talk to it.

Unfortunately, I get an error message from CAT7200 when pointing it to the virtual com port created by RRC. Apparently RRC does not allow the RTSEnable flag to be called on it's port :(

Is there a possible workaround? Maybe someone knows of a software TNC that works with CAT commands natively? The client is Windows10.
