I finally got term running by using a termrc file give by Darb on IRC but
my response time is really bad. I would prefer to have a little slower
rate if the connection wasn't so jerky...ergo. it scrolls-stops-scrolls
sort of thing. I am using a US Robotics Sportster 14.4K PC/FAX
The connection succeeds with V32/LAPM/V42
Port rate= 38400-fixed with RTSCTS flow + compression and modem autobauding
The termrc file says the BAUDRATE=0 Is this right, it works?
I got a little better response when I set compression=off ...so I am just
using the modems own compression and I increased window=10 and set the
restransmit time=100(20ths of sec). Window size of 2 with timeout=50
caused the connection to fail. Window 3-6 with timeout 100-150 work also.
It seems that the modem transmit the data in blocks of 3.5K when using
error control...could this be a problem? I can't figure out how to reset
the modem for smaller data blocks?
Should I turn modem compression off and fix the baud at 9600 with the
serial port rate still at 38400...and use the term default, compress=on?
What I want to do is tredir a port to my machine (this works) so mutiple
internet users can access a game client/server. The game is text based
but competition at game updates can be fierce.
Would it help if I changed the default priority values of the clients to
favor the tredir?
