Summary: X.25 problems

                        ORIGINAL QUESTION
Has anybody configured Sunlink X.25 to allow downloads via x,y,z modem over
the public dial ports ? If so, could you tell me what you had to do ?

Turns out the problem is with Sunlink X.25 v7.0. This version does not fully
implement the 1988 X.25 standard and as such does not allow setting of
parameter 21. This parameter controls parity on the X.25 line. Once that
parameter is set properly ( in this case no parity [s21:0] ) everything worked
just fine.

        AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
You have an inventive mind and are inclined to be progressive. You lie
a great deal. On the other hand, you are inclined to be careless and
impractical, causing you to make the same mistakes over and over
again. People think you are stupid.
