It's not PuTTY, it happens regardless of what terminal emulator you use. I may be wrong, but I think hitting return on the connection causes the UDS1100 (Ethernet to serial adaptor) to trigger an ATA command that makes the BBS believe it has just received a modem connection?
TT030: 4MB/16MB + Crazy Dots, Mega"SST" 12, MegaSTE, STE: Desktopper case, IDE interface, UltraSatan (8GB + 512Mb) + HXC floppy emulator. Plus some STE's/STFM's

Yep, you must hit a key, <return>, whatever...before the Lantronix UDS will respond. I've talked to
Lantronix about this - just some simple fix that would announce that a connection has been made
but they've not been very helpful.

I'll start putting that rather important tidbit of information in my winner announcements.

Thanks for calling btw! :)

PS You know its odd - under Linux I do get a connection msg.

Folks, recently I did an inactive user "purge" on DarkForce. Any account that hadn't
been active for longer than 2 years was deleted. We had over 750+ users listed, but
only about 200 or so that are actually calling. Some of those accounts hadn't seen
a call in over 10 years...

At least 1 person (jens) who had called in that time frame was accidentally caught
and deleted as well.

So if anyone has any problems, just let me know and I'll fix it. Thanks!
