Thanks for looking up the MAXFRAME in the D700.  That is good news.

But back to the THD7, although it is in general a TRANSMIT commmand, it
could have something to do with internal BUFFER size, and so it might
only ACK one packet at a time and not wait for as many as 7 before sending
a combined ack.  But you may be correct.  It may only affect transmit, but
it was the only thing I could think or that 1) is different about the THD7
than conventional TNC's and 2) that may cause the effect he was seeing..?

I would love to learn more about it too..  anyone?
