I'm trying to set up here and confounded by it all. Got the D7's TNC to show the hello message in Hyperterminal, can't get any data to decode from the local flexnet node, ht shows nothing when I hear the tone bursts.

Looking for some help familiar with *flexnet* and the D7's packet mode.

FlexNet is AX25, just like ROSE, NetRom, X1J, etc... If your system won't decode FlexNet, it won't decode the others, either.

Your best bet is to find another D7 owner who is familiar with the drill for operating packet.

I may be wrong, but it seems that I read somewhere that the D7's TNC is a "KISS" TNC... If so, you will need packet terminal software than can talk to a KISS TNC. Hyperterminal won't do that.

I don't know about Flexnet, but the big issue with the built in TNC's are limited buffer size.  You can use a simple terminal program to interface with the radio/TNC (I have used hyperterm and Kantronics Pacterm with mine) but if the packets start to get long, you might overload the buffer and lose data.

That's the only information i can offer on the subject.
