    Hey everyone, got a Kenwood TM-D710G with built in TNC that I use on our local 2 meter packet system. I always ran a windows laptop with PuTTY to connect to it. Well that computer went bad and it was replaced with a Mac Mini.

    What software is out there to connect my mac to the built in TNC of my Kenwood?

    Thanks and 73 from WV8MAT

    You'll be much better served if you re-post your question to the Mac OS sub-forum under "
    "Computers, Hardware, and Operating Systems"

    I'd be very interested to know what results you experience by finding the Mac OS device name and using the screen command to connect to it.

    From Terminal command "ls /dev/tty.*" and "ls /dev/cu.*" ? If you're using a Keyspan serial-USB adapter, the device name will likely contain USA19H or similiar.

    If you are able to identify the TNC based on the above command(s), try this Terminal command:

    screen /dev/xx.usbserialxxxxx (actual device name) 9600
