Hello all

 I'm looking for a packet program to use on my laptop.  I have only USB ports and my RS232 adapter works but only on com 5.  I have Winpack running just fine well I have the demo running.  $80 seems a bit steep for that software.  Does anyone know of a packet terminal program under $40 that will work on com 5?

Thank you and 73's

Winpack was made by our friend Roger Barker, who just passed away. It's a terminal mode only program and doesn't use the host mode, like Pacterm for Windows does.
