With the release of the new FSL A321 I see a lot of discussion on some forums requesting CPDLC.  The native Hoppie client works but its very slow and awkward to use. 

I have installed TopSky into Euroscope which supposedly allows you to use CPDLC right from the tag but have no idea if it works with Canscope or how to properly set it up.

Just a question for others, do you know if this works?  If not is it possible to make modifications so it will work?

You can also try this one Mark.  We did some testing in Moncton but have to do some more yet to see if it's feasible.

I have vSMR installed and have used it but it is rather slow and awkward.  I think Topsky uses the tags but not sure.  Apparently its much easier.  Anthony B got it working today (at least to some degree).

Excellent.  Think they are all slow due to the hoppie network it uses.
