Re: Packet Terminal Program

Hi Bob and all,

Yes, YAPP is a very simple program (and also provides a very 
good format for sending binary files).

I use an old DOS program called 'paKet' that is both easy to use, 
yet also has lots of features (including a YAPP compatible transfer 
protocol). It is totally uncrippled shareware, available at:

I'm not sure about software time-stamps though.  What kind of TNC 
are you using Bob?  I think all Kantronics has time stamping 
available with the MSTAMP command (or CSTAMP to time stamp 
connects and disconnects).
