Roger, 

We are getting there.  I uninstalled Version 6 and installed version 5.24.

The TUNE (transmitting) button works!!!  I wonder if we were clicking the wrong button in version 6.  Were we clicking TX or TUNE? 

In version 5, TUNE works, TX does nothing.

RCForb Connects!  From the remote client, I can tune the radio, change bands, change filters, etc. 

I can transmit in tune, but not send CW.

I get am error message on the Client --- Message (CW) is not allowed.

In version 5, I don't see a window for DM780 or anything like it for sending CW.... 

Perhaps a CW interface needs to be established so RCForb can use it?

Hmmmmmmmm.

Version 5 supports Winkey (which I don't have).  In any case, Win Key connects thru a serial port.  My one and only serial port is in use by HRD.

Time fer Version 6 again?

I'm stumped and I have to go to work....

Yeah, That's it.  The CW interface is awkward/non-existent for a K2.

Even if we get this working, I would need to send the HRD folks $50 to permanently activate the software.

Quite frankly, I'd rather send Remote Hams $50 for a working K2 driver.

I will probably just go back to the K3 driver and put up with Pool wait read timeouts.

Thank you for all your help.
