I apologize I am confused.. You telnet in with CCGMS and it works fine? But when looking at the BBS side it is garbage? I'm lost sorry...

@bucko Sorry.... 

If I call my BBS via telnet (using a linux terminal window) with Image 3.0 running on my 64:

  • the modem answers the call
  • Image 3.0 detects the call
  • "HIT BACKSPACE OR DELETE KEY" is observed on the telnet/terminal (end user) side along with some random (garbage?) characters
  • the prompt keeps repeating (no matter what I hit)
  • This is at 1200 baud (that Image and Wifi Modem are both set to). 

Conversely, if I load up CCGMS on my 64 and then try to call my BBS via telnet from the linux terminal window:

  • the modem answers the call
  • both the CCGMS terminal and the linux terminal appear normal -  anything I type on my telnet terminal is clear and observable at CCGMS and same holds true for anything typed out at CCGMS (displays properly at telnet terminal session).

Does that help?

I gotcha now... Sorry about that.. To me that sounds like the Linux Terminal is throwing garbage into the line, Image unless it encounters a Backspace at that prompt will just sit there and keep repeating it. Not sure what changed over the years to make it that way, but that is it.. If CCGMS is working with try using another term like SyncTerm in Linux and see how that works.. If that works fine then I would chalk the garbage up to Linux not playing nice... I have never used the terminal in Linux to dial out with so I don't know how to re-produce it. If you want to lay out the steps to do this in Linux I will give it a shot to see if it happens to me..

So I attempted with SyncTerm - same observable. See attached pic.

Also another note: After closing Syncterm which should have killed the connection, the BBS continued to "receive" information on the line and kept trying to process it as a login. 

Again, not seeing this if I use a telnet session to "call" CCGMS on the 64. In that case I see a clear connect, clear text receipt and send, and clear disconnect. It's gotta be a setting in the modem init config??

current modem init config is:
atr0v0e0s0=1s41=1s2=27a6502x1

1. MAX BAUD 1200

2: DTR Hang-up

3 Auto Answer

4: ATH AFT/ESC

5: Local Off Hook

6 ATH w/0

7: ATH in Init$

8 ATX Value =1

9: Normal DTR

10: Bell (ATB1)

11: RS232: Normal

12: No Caller ID
