I finally managed to pick up a Omnitronix rs232 interface. I can link up to other BBS systems via Telnet using tcpser. For some reason Quantumlink refuses to even connect or budge the tcpser to "found match number" or something like that. Novaterm works like a charm, but I fail for the quantumlink side.
When I did try the java version, it closes out after quantumlink tries to establish a connection. Thats a step further, but the config file for it on the website is broke. Does anyone have this file so that I can try and see if quantumlink will work with the java version of tcpser?
After several tries to connect, it finally connected.
Here is what I got...
I am using Windows XP.
(After trying and changing a few things, TCPSer does work on XP. You will just have to change quantumlink to other command driven modem and use ATDT 551212 to connect.)
I wondered if I needed the Java Version in order for it to work, so I gave it a shot. The config file provided was not working. It would not answer or talk back to my commodore, so I just decided to edit the config file myself using the one that came with tcpser4j archive.
In order to get this to work, you have to set the modem type on Quantumlink to "Other command driven modem"
After you have set that, when you are in the screen, type ATDT 5551212 as you do, and having tcpser4j setup on your PC, it will start to do the sounds that its connecting and talking back. After the PC says the commodore says connect 1200, press F1 to start linking, and WHALA! It worked....
If anyone else has trouble linking, then let me know. Hope this works out for other people having trouple linking to Qlink.
What exactly did you do to get this working? I have tried everything, but tcpser4j wont do anything. It doesn't respond to anything i type from Qlink connection screen. I too have terminal software working excelent. (but not via tcpser4j though...)
