Post updated to reflect current state: 1. "TELCN for nano" ZIP contains two TIFILES formatted files: a. NANOS - source for the nanopeb patch b. TELCN - a program to patch TELCO at run-time. The nanopeb serial port can only be accessed when the card/DSR is turned on. Although this follows TI convention, the step is not required for other RS232 cards, hence the 'incompatibility' with most direct-access serial programs. To use this patch place TELCN in the same folder/disk as TELCO/P/Q. Start Telco by running TELCN. TELCN will patch the necessary three routines and transfer control to Telco when complete. I originally hacked the patches into the telco files using Birdwell's disk utilities but maintenance/upkeep is a real pain so I used the more 'interactive' approach. Note: this patch does not change any of the Telco files, it only changes the program in memory. My testing has been limited to terminal-based testing with my (sometimes flakey) nano and a 14.4k modem. I did not try to "fix" the DTR hang-up feature. A proper cable is required as detailed in other topics. Since the question has arisen in other threads, Mass Transfer 7.4 and TIMXT also work with the nano. The latter requires the F18A. 2. "TELCN for Ubergrom UART" ZIP contains two TIFILES formatted files: a. UBERS - source for ubergrom patch b. TELCN - program to patch TELCO at run-time The ubergrom UART patch functions with Telco's terminal mode only; the file transfer routines rely on the RS232 circular interrupt buffer on a per-module basis. I have determined that it is not feasible (for me) at this time to try to update all of the file transfer modules. If someone comes up with the source code for Telco, I'd be happy to take a stab at it. UART speed is locked at 38.4K. It is possible this speed will need to be reduced to a lower baud rate for usability when connecting to systems that transmit at high speed. Edit: attached the telco complete package Tursi provided in another Telco thread for completeness since it is the image I used for testing.
