This is a list of all the parameters (DISP Z) that I have tested, totally successfully, with a PK88 and WinPack. Most of them won't have any affect on the performance of WinPack, but I haven't got time to sit and filter out the non-critical ones.
**** PLEASE READ AND TAKE NOTICE OF THE NEXT BIT!!!! ***** ***** NB NB NB ***** You MUST MUST MUST set JP3 correctly in the TNC to get the PK88 to work with WinPack. It is a 3 pin header, you MUST put the jumper on the two pins nearest the front of the TNC - the default is that it is on the two pins nearest the back. The setting for WinPack will also be correct for Paket, TPK, and most other modern packet software.
Once you've set the jumper, the default settings in WinPack Comms Setup for the connected and disconnected strings, and for "DCD shows con" (Yes) will be correct.
The default PK88 settings for AWLEN and PARITY are 7 and 3. To initially get WinPack to talk to the PK88, you may need to set WinPack to 7 databits, even parity. Once you have established communication, send the commands AWLEN 8, PARITY 0 and RESTART to the TNC - the screen will show some rubbish. Now set WinPack back to 8 databits, even parity.
See "TNC/Computer" on my TNCs page for an easier way. - IPL
Regard these settings as a good starting point - they work! Add things like BTEXT, set PACLEN and MAXFRAME to suit local conditions, etc.
Have fun! 73 - G4IDE.
