Software For BayPac Modems



      To help you get started with your BayPac Modem, we have put together
this list of compatible shareware and commercial programs.

     In this document we will tell you who makes the program, what modes they 
have to offer, and where you can get your copy!  We will tell you how to 
configure each program for use with your BayPac modem and make comments about 
configuration or operation.  At the end of this document you will find a list 
of incompatible programs and the reasons why each of them will not work with 
the BayPac. 

     Tigertronics in no way endorses or supports any of the programs listed 
in this document. We have compiled this list only to aid you in locating 
programs that are known to work with the BayPac series of modems.  As you
should expect, some programs will work better than others.  Many work better
or worse depending on your specific equipment configuration.  We recommend
that you download and evaluate several programs to determine which works
best in your particular application.  This list represents only a sampling of
the software that is available.  We will make an ongoing effort to refine and
update this list as we become aware of suitable programs.

     We would appreciate any comments you may have about programs that you are 
using with the BayPac.  We welcome all comments - Pro or Con!  We would like 
to add your comments to the list, for all to share (if appropriate!

Introduction

     Before we get started, here are a few notes on how this information is 
put together.  The programs in this document are listed in alphabetical order 
by program name.  If the program is from a commercial source then the 
company's name will be listed.  If the program is shareware then you will 
find the word "Shareware" instead. 

     To find out where you can get your copy of the program, look for the 
"Source:", followed by one (or several) numbers.  These numbers reference an 
Internet Web Page, a telephone BBS number, or the authors address (Sources are 
listed at the end of this document). 

     The "Comments:" line will give you the information that you need to
configure the program, along with any tips and suggestions that might be
helpful.

     The "Min Requirements:" line tells you what the computer hardware
requirements are for each program (as per the programs documentation).  

     The last thing that we need to mention is that the BP-2M has many 
different "Modes" which allow it to operate with the various programs.  The 
number that you see following the line "BayPac Mode:" indicates which Mode 
you must select in the BPMODE program to be compatible.  Programs that 
support 9600 baud packet will show "BP-96" instead of (or in addition to) 
the Mode number.  Please note that the BP-1 and BP-2 modems will only run 
programs that use Mode 1 (1200 baud packet).

AGWPE.ZIP		AGW Packet Engine  -  Freeware 

Source: 1		BayPac Mode: 1, BP-96

Comments:		NOTE: All links to the AGW packet programs now go 
			directly to the authors web site.  This will insure 
			that you get the latest version of each program.

			The AGW Packet Engine is the heart of the AGW series
			of packet programs from George Rossopoulos, SV2AGW.  
			The packet engine acts as the interface between the 
			modem and the other AGW applications (see below). 
			The packet engine supports multiple modems and 
			multiple simultaneous connections.  This means that 
			you can have a BP-2 and a BP-96 connected to two 
			different stations, each transferring a different 
			file, at the same time! In addition to downloading 
			the AGW Packet Engine, you will also need the AGW 
			DRIVERS, and one of the AGW packet programs listed 
			below.

			To install the AGW Packet Engine and drivers, unzip 
			AGWPE.ZIP to an empty directory on your hard drive.  
			Next, unzip DRIVERS.ZIP to your "Windows\System\" 
			directory.  Finally, read the AGWPE help file for 
			detailed directions on setting up the program.

			Note:  When selecting the modem during setup, you 
			should select "BayCom Serial" if you are using a 
			BP-1, BP-2 or BP-2M.  Select "BP-96" if you are 
			using a BP-96/BP-96A.

EZPACKET.ZIP		Ez Packet v2.3 - Freeware
Source: 28		BayPac Mode: 1
Comments:		Ez Packet is a really neat packet program for DOS. 
			It performs very well, and it requires less disk 
			space than any other DOS packet program - less than 
			160k for all files, including the on-line help!.

			Configuring the serial ports can be a little 
			confusing with this program, so we have already
			setup the program for the most commonly used port 
			COM2.  To configure the program for another port, 
			all you have to do is replace the letters "2F" in 
			the port settings (0x2FC, 0x2FE and 0x2FB) with the 
			appropriate letters for the port you are using.  For 
			COM1 use "3F", for COM3 use "3E", and for COM4, use 
			"2E".  After you've configured the program and are 
			ready to run, you can access the on-line help at 
			any time by pressing Alt-H.

                        not tested this program.  However, many of our

Source: 20, 27          BayPac Mode: 1, 2

Comments:               This is the last freeware release of Super Packet.
                        The installation and setup of this program is complex,
                        however it is easy to use once you get it up and
			running.

Min Requirements:       IBM compatible XT or Atari ST, 640K, Mono

TFPCX271.ZIP            TFPCX  v2.71  -  Shareware

Source: 21, 27          BayPac Mode: 1, 2

Comments:               TFPCX is a RAM resident (TSR) program that receives
			and decodes packet transmissions.  TFPCX is almost
			always used as the front end to other programs (like
			Graphics Packet, Super Packet, etc.), however it can 
			also be set up to act as a VERY SIMPLE stand alone 
			terminal program.  This latest version of TFPCX has 
			many new features including support for 9600 baud 
			packet (see our BP-96A) and DAMA operation. Please 
			see the programs documentation files for more 
			information.

			NOTE: We have found that TFPCX may not load on some 
			newer Pentium computers (it locks up). If you 
			experience this problem, then try using the TFX 
			driver below (if your program supports it).  Also 
			note that programs employing this driver work very 
			well, but perhaps not quite as well as BayCom.

Min Requirements:       8MHz IBM compatible XT, 640k

Supports:		300, 1200 & 9600 Baud packet. Graphics Packet, Multi-user 
			BayCom, Super Packet, TOP, and TSTHOST are just a few

Source: 22, 27          BayPac Mode: 1, 2

Comments:		TFX is a new RAM resident (TSR) program that receives
			and decodes packet transmissions.  This program is
			similar to TFPCX in that it is used as the front end
			to other programs (like Graphics Packet, Super Packet,
                        etc.).  The TFX28.ZIP archive file contains several
			different driver programs.  The file TFX_PORT.COM
			supports BayPac 1200 baud modems, while the file
                        TFX_PAR.COM supports the new Tigertronics BP-96A
                        (9600 baud) modem.

Shareware - Doing Your Part!

     Most of the programs on this list are Shareware.  Simply put, Shareware 
means that you are welcome to download and use the program at no charge for a 
limited trial period.  After the evaluation period, if the program meets your 
needs and expectations and you plan to continue using it, you are asked to 
send a small registration fee to the author. 

    Some of these programs represent "man years" of effort and rival their 
commercial counterparts.  By marketing these programs as shareware, the 
authors are able to bring you outstanding products at rock bottom prices.  
But, Shareware only works if you honor your part of the agreement.
