Outpost and PacFORMS are the standard client software used in Santa Clara County ARES/RACES. Outpost provides an easy to use, e-mail-like user interface for sending, receiving and managing packet messages. PacFORMS provides an HTML representation of many standard county forms and optimizes the sending and receiving of forms-based information over a packet network.
This program installs both Outpost and PacFORMs and includes optimized configuration files for the county BBSs and several popular TNCs. All users of the Santa Clara County packet network should use this version of Outpost and PacFORMS.
