Re: Does Winlink do more than text messaging?

Winlink on Linux (RMS Gateway at this point) is open source and there is work progressing on an open implementation of the Winmor TNC. I also know that there is interest in an open source client application similar to RMS Express.

Winlink actually utilizes standard TCP/IP for the bulk of what it does; it can be used to send attachments like is done via normal email though there are size limits for that. The only thing that is technically proprietary is the use of Pactor; the Winlink development team is too small to devote time to development of Linux applications and maintain the Windows software too.
