AGWPE-compatible Programs

The chart below shows some of the programs and utilities that will work with AGWPE. In addition, the AGWPE site has information about a few other programs. Click on the "AGWPE configuration help" next to a program for additional help on this web site. Otherwise, visit the program's web site listed in the last column.

If you're having trouble getting a particular application to work with AGWPE, first make sure AGWPE works with the  AGW Terminal Program . If AGWTerm won't work with AGWPE, then you have a problem with AGWPE that needs to be resolved before it will work with the other program; see the troubleshooting guide.

AGWPE Interfaces

AXIP

link AGW Packet Engines and other applications together via TCP/IP
see  http://www.qsl.net/lu7did/   and
http://www.qsl.net/lu7did/bin/axipdrv/axipdrv.txt

See this page for Keith G1GXB's description of how to use AXIP to link to X-router

KISS-Mode TNC Emulator

interface WiSP, JNOS or other KISS-mode programs and MixW to AGWPE
see  http://www.pearsoncomputing.net

TelMgr

access AGWPE via a Telnet connection
see  http://www.qsl.net/lu7did/telmgr.htm

XGlue

 interface AGWPE to PC/Flexnet32 and thus to programs that work with Flexnet
see  http://www.qsl.net/lu7did/xglue.htm

HW VSP

http://www.hw-group.com/products/hw_vsp/index_en.html
is a software driver that adds a virtual serial port (e.g. COM27) to the operating system and redirects the data from this port via a TCP/IP network to another hardware interface, which is specified by its IP address and port number. Untested with AGWPE, but seems like it might act as a serial port bridge to link a non-compatible packet program to AGWPE.

Winlink Utilities -

 

Airmail to AGWPE Linker

Airmail is a program that can connect to Winlink RMS gateways.You can download Airmail at :http://www.siriuscyber.net/ham/

Airmail can not connect directly to AGWPE, but there is a page on this website that discusses how to link the two:
AGWPE with Airmail

The Winlink 2000 system is used to send email via radio to the internet.

Paclink

Paclink is intended for use with the Winlink 2000 system. Paclink interfaces with most popular email client programs (such as Microsoft Outlook Express and Mozilla Thunderbird ) and provides connectivity to the Winlink system via telnet, VHF packet radio, and HF Pactor. The info and download page is at: http://www.winlink.org/ClientSoftware

There is AGWPE configuration help within Paclink. Use the Paclink menu to call up "Help", and within the Help "Contents", look under "Configuration" where you will find topics on "AGW Engine Properties" and "Packet AGW Channels".

In addition, Jon Perelstein WB2RYV has written two excellent guides for interfacing PacLink to AGWPE on a Vista or Windows 7 machine:

RMS Express

RMS Express lets you compose, send and receive messages using the WinLink 2000 system. RMS Express can not connect directly to AGWPE, but there is a page on this website that discusses how to link the two: AGWPE with RMS Express
