Hi Andrew

Sounds to me like the TNC is not initialising at boot up.
I've had this experience with KPC-3s. Thay can be difficult.
Found the best way was to set up the TNC first using the floppy that 
comes with the TNC to get all the parameters and baud rate set then go 
to the other program knowing how it is set. Make sure you have the 
correct initialisation coms rate set before starting. (Note that KPC 
uses INT KISS to get into Kiss mode which is different to most other 
TNCs). Should work then.
The first one I tried was very difficult to switch between modes (i.e 
getting it out of KISS) without resorting to the original floppy or 
Pacterm. The second one died from a progressive firmware fault. I 
haven't been able to acquir a third one to try.

Hope this helps
