3. On-line viewing and changing the configuration.
4. Screen freeze.
5. Up to four (4) simultaneous connections (with separate sessions) in individual windows.
6. Full-screen "zoom" capability to enlarge session windows.
7. Paging forwards and backwards within each window.
8. Window snapshot (writing the current, viewable screen contents or the entire scroll-back buffer to a file).
9. Optional continuous logging of screen output to a file for later viewing or printing.
10. Beaconing (sending station ID w/ short message manually and/or at pre-defined intervals).
11. Upload and Download of ASCII files.
12. Local Mailbox.
13. Separate display of stations and nodes recently heard along with the times they were heard (and the paths to them if in 43+ line mode) with real-time updating.
14. Automatic connection to stations heard by entering a letter for a station in the "heard" list.
15. Ability to clear the stations heard and nodes heard lists.
16. Display of I/O statistics (CRC errors, framing errors, etc.) with real-time updating.

25. Others may repeat through the station to other stations (digipeat).
26. Unattended operations mode. This allows anyone connecting to the station to:
All but the disconnect (bye) command may be disabled, and the disk drives that the remote station has access to can be
restricted, both via the on-line configuration.

I have no first-hand experience with a Baycom modem, so all I can respond to this question with is that I have been told by several people that they have been successful in getting EzPacket to work with a Baycom modem. In case you have this same question, EZPKTCFG.GIF is an excerpt from the EzPacket User's Manual. I cannot guarantee anything, but hopefully this will help you.

Yea, so it only runs at 300/1200bps and works with Baycom & PMP modems, but it works great, it's intuitive, and it's free, so quit your #$@&*% complaining! kidding

I used to charge $5.00 for this, but it's just not worth my effort anymore to print and mail copies, so here it is for you to print. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader (free) to view and/or print the manual.
If you have comments or questions about EzPacket, e-mail me at
