I may have misunderstood your question, so please don't be offended if I
tell you something you already know.
You say you are using Packet Engine Pro, but don't say which terminal
program you are using with it.
The AGW Packet engine, written by SV2AGW, and is just that - a packet
engine. You need a terminal program as to talk to the engine and supply
the data to be transmitted.
For the ISS, a great piece of terminal software is UISS. It runs great
with the AGW packet engine.
UISS is written by OM6MU and you can down load a copy as long as you
send him a card (cardware). You can find it at:
SV2AGW also has a terminal program you can use with his packet engine.
And of course UIView works with the engine too. Others as well, I'm sure.
