AGW Packet Engine

Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 and 8.1
AGW Packet Engine does not need installation. You download the zip file and unzip the program in a clean directory. If you unzip the program under the documents directory then it works ok under any windows version.
This program does all the traffic between the packet applications (AGWFWD, AGWTERMINAL, AGWCLUSTER and others) and your TNCs. It runs as an Icon. It has the capability to handle 100 tncs and 100 applications at the same time. For the moment works with external tncs in KISS mode, Baycom Like serial modems for 1200-9600, DRSI cards (4 sharing the same IRQ line 8 Radioports), Baycom USCC cards, Sound Cards with the PSA chipset 1200/9600, OE5DXL,YAM, OptoScc, PetScc . New drivers for new hardware will be available as soon as I get the Hardware!!! It handles also the special dual port tncs of Kantronics (KAM,KPC96 etc.) and AEA (PK900 etc). This program has the capabilities to handle different applications it does that only if each application has a different call. Eg agwfwd.exe with SV2AGW-1,Agwterminal.exe SV2AGW, agwcluster.exe SV2AGW-3 etc. That way with just a tnc you work like you have two or three or four different tnc and TRCVRs. In case you have more than a tnc then each program can work all the tncs at the same time. You can eg. Chat with a friend with the agwterminal.exe in tnc1 (e.g.. vhf 1200bauds) and also receive a YAPP form tnc2 (eg. UHF 9600bauds). And also receive your mail from tnc1 and cluster dxspots also from tnc1. The combinations are unlimited. What the program doesn't do is that of gateway for other stations. Other stations cannot gateway from your tncs. Also it doesn't serves as a digi . This is done for two reasons. First I don't like the idea "every tnc and a digi". Leave it for clubs and special packet teams to decide if we need a digi or not. Second because I have to write a lot of code and I can't do it right now. Maybe in the future if I receive many requests for those operations . AGW Packet Engine can also use the native build in TCPIP protocol over Packet Radio.

Hint and Tips
1.For the first time Packet Engine has no RadioPorts. You must Configure each TNC. Select the Program And Press The Right Mouse Button to display its System Menu. Then Select Properties and in the FindPort Dialog press the Button [NEW]. Such a way you create a new RadioPort.
2.If your TNC is a DUALPORT model then after the first configuration you must run again separately for each radioport the Properties Dialog to configure each radioport commands (TXDELAY,FRACK etc).
3.If in trouble then erase all the *.ini files and start from scratch.

Ralph Mines (KC2RLM), wrote this tutorial, not just for SoundCards but for all configurations with Packet Engine.Thank you Ralph. It is also available in Francais and Portugese.
