    Hi everyone. I have kind of an odd setup and I'm running into trouble. I have 2 systems running packet radio, and both work fine.

    System 1: Ubuntu
    Using Winlink/KISS/Soundmodem on Wine with Baofeng HT.

    System 2: Raspberry Pi (Rasbian)
    Using Pat/Direwolf with Baofeng HT.

    Both work fine. The problem I'm running into is when I want my Winlink on Ubuntu to connect to Direwolf on the RPi. I have them communicating and the system sends frames, but the frames don't look right and I'm not sure how to troubleshoot.

    Here's the output from Direwolf:
    KB0SRJ-10 audio level = 47(22/15)   [NONE]   ___||||||
    [0.5] KB0SRJ-10>KE0KAI:(UA res, f=1)
    [0L] KE0KAI>KB0SRJ-10:(DM res, f=1)
    [0L] KE0KAI>KB0SRJ-10:(RR cmd, n(r)=0, p=1)
    KE0KAI audio level = 75(20/10)   [NONE]   _||______
    [0.1] KE0KAI>KB0SRJ-10:(RR cmd, n(r)=0, p=1)
    KB0SRJ-10 audio level = 65(24/14)   [NONE]   _|||||||_
    [0.4] KB0SRJ-10>KE0KAI:(DM res, f=1)
    KISS client application 1 has gone away.
    The part that doesn't look right to me is that when the gateway responds with a "UA", my system sends a "DM" but then continues as if it's ready to respond. If I'm understanding correctly, that causes the gateway to then send a "DM" and disconnect.

    The only things I changed on Winlink to instruct it to work with Direwolf are:
    Packet TNC Model: From Ackmode to Normal
    TCP Host: From localhost to {Hostname of RPi}
    TCP Port: From 8801 to 8001

    That's the extent of the changes.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Sorry for the late response, and I can't help - but have you tried the Direwolf group (I think it's a yahoogroup or or something like that). There are plenty of "power users" there.
