• Recieving Tics

    From Nicholas Kill@1:261/38 to All on Sat Apr 29 12:43:33 2006
    Ok, I'm set up with how I want Tick to run. The config is set, but I have no clue how to start receiving tic files at my BBS. Any help would be appreciated.

    Reguards,
    Nick

    You need to get yourself connected to a distribution hub. I carry and distribute the whole FileGate distribution from here, and could add you to my distribution list. If you're interested, send me a netmail message at 1:342/5 with your connection information (are you available via internet, etc) and we'll see what we can set up.

    That would be great, if you could work this out with Nick.. He's one of my downlinks but we all know what moving more files off this system is like :( My poor dsl line is so darn overloaded.. Anyway, I'm hoping Nick takes you up on this :)

    Hmm.. I never noticed till just now I can't quote someones tear/origin
    line with Synchronet (well, I don't have to cut it out of replies either).
    I see you are using LXpoint, where can I get info about that package?

    dsl to slow for fidonet, hehe :-)

    Well, it's a 3Megabyte line with only 256K upload speed, and about 56K download
    speed.. you take that 56K and split it up over a bunch of users picking up files, and my web and ftp server, and it really really stinks :( I've complained to tds.net several times (for what we're paying for this line, it's PATHETIC!!) and they say, "nope, everything is working FINE".. Lol. It's so bad some days I have to take down the web server for awhile :(


    htick should have some kind of dupe file checker just like hpt have for echomail

    Yes, it should. BBBS has a dupe file it creates with the CRCs for that purpose. You can control how long you want to track dupes, so that's good.

    It's a Linux package, and you can download it from http://www.fidogate.org/pub/feddy in RPM format.

    I use it a bit differently here than most because it is set up on the same server as my main BBBS system. I find logging into BBBS to read my mail is just such a pain that I use LXpoint for all my FidoNet message reading and writing. I much prefer the LXpoint message editor than trying to work within BBBS. I have written a perl script to directly process the BBBS message packets destined to the point system, thus bypassing the need for a point-side mailer or connection to the main BBS. A similar script takes any new messages entered through LXpoint and "uploads" them to BBBS for actual sending through FidoNet.

    To be honest, I can't remember the last time I logged into BBBS. <grin>

    I guess what kills me is they are charging us "Business rates".. & actually forced us to put in a "business telephone line" as opposed to Residential telephone so we could run servers.. absolutely criminal in my mind!

    sounds like you need to drop by dslreports, run some tests and point your provider to those results if they really do back your standing that the line is
    slow... not only point them to those results but even possibly beat them with them if you have to... printers and personal visits can do wonders ;) i would definitely have one of their guys come by and accurately test the line...

    remember, try the tests with one machine directly on the net and again with your normal network setup... why? it may be possibly that something is wrong with a router in your location... wrong setup, not beefy enough for the traffic, etc...

    no doubt! this is also one of the reasons (business rates) that i never took to
    advertising my bbs... in many areas, advertising something indicated that it was a business, period... i've also run into the situation, years and years back, where more than X phone lines in one location was considered a business... i gotta wonder what they'd think, today, with the four lines currently in this location and a total of 6 or 8 billed to this location O:)

    I could understand that even.. I mean if someone used advertising to make $$$..
    But over here, there is no "test".. just if you want to run servers, you have to get a business line, and pay business rates.. really crummy.

    back, where more than X phone lines in one location was considered a business... i gotta wonder what they'd think, today, with the four lines currently in this location and a total of 6 or 8 billed to this location O:)

    Yeah, know what you mean.. before they forced this business line on us we just had four good old res. lines for the BBS and for voice (telephone).. oh well

    dslreports has everything testing wise as well as support wise that you'll ever
    need for broadband support... set up a user account and have at it! i've used it for many years while working on friend's and client's machines and connections... they can even tell you how to switch some units from "active" to
    "passthru" where the connection stuff is actually done by your machine/firewall
    instead of the "modem" doing it all ;)
