Downloading problems with WiModem 232 and a UDS-10

One thing I will say is that at 9600 baud I typically see transfers in the upper 800's of characters per second (cps) between two 9600 baud systems.  Your system's max transfer speed at 9600 baud is right at 700 cps.  That is really slow (by 20%+), so I am wondering what is causing that.    I called back at 57600 (which should max your system's 19200 baud out) and I got a successful transfer at 1350 cps.. that's a big drop from the normal 1850's you should be seeing with 19200 baud.

So, at this point I guess I need to know WHAT is actually enabling a Telnet protocol.  A ISP or router doesn't, only the device responsible for data transfers, so I guessing it is the UDS-10?

Hmm, well, I don't know. What machine did you have you WiModem 232 hooked up to? I have mine hooked up to a Atari Mega STe, running at 16mhz.

Using that setup, while it successfully connects to everything I've called, it simply will not download from DarkForce without CRC erroring out. I've also been
told by a few of my callers using WiModem 232's that they are unable to download as well.

Not sure about the slow speed. Did you notice the CPS download speed on the picture I posted?
