Echomail is tossed into .PKT's which Binkd sees and sends out, whereas netmail gets tossed into another directory into .MSG files.
FastEcho may be thinking your outbound is in FD or arcmail attach but you'll need to have it in BSO mode for binkd to be able to send it.
So I seemingly have Telegard all setup and can now send & receive
echomail via Telegard <-> FastEcho <-> Binkd. The only issue I just now came across is with Netmail.
Still having trouble getting SGMail to connect...much less BinkD. Still giving me errors when attempting to connect with the hubs. Along with that...still having problems with TG/2 taking the strings to connect from SGMail.
In terms of netmail...have it set up as a JAM base...but told FE under System/FEUtil Parameters to set "Include USERS.BBS" to "NO".
For FE...here's what I got for FE:
From there...am at a loss on the proper string to pass to TG/2 & make SGMail restart itself after running FE. Just heads back to the folder &
a command prompt.
the way of advice. I'm using netfossil & Net2BBS in Windows 10 32bit
and it seems to do the job.
c:\tg\nf\nf.bat /n*N /h*H c:\tg\telegard.exe -B115200 -N*N -Q
System/FEUtil Parameters to set "Include USERS.BBS" to "NO".Yeah, I found those settings early on. I was posting test echomail messages and FE seemed to ignore all of them until I switched that to No.
To pack the netmail which then tosses it into the C:\tg\echomail\out folder into a .PKT for binkd to send.
Going through all of this again REALLY makes me appreciate how easy
Mystic makes all of this.
I'm not familiar with OS/2, does it use .BAT files?
Again, I don't know if OS/2 uses batch files, or if SGMail works the
same, so maybe barking up the wrong tree.
TELEGARD -B%1 -X%3 -N%4 -C%5 -Q
Using this...TG/2 says it can't find the node & drops to the command
What's the .bat/.cmd file look like?
OS2BATFILE.CMD 57600 something 60 1 ARQ
Where %1 = 57600, %2 = ?, %3 = 60, %4 = 1, & %5 = ARQ
Which then should translate to:
TELEGARD -B57600 -X60 -N1 -CARQ -Q
So Telegard would be loading a new connection at 57600bps on node 1. It would have an external event in 60 minutes and the modem would be operating in ARQ mode. I don't know that we need the -C flag when using telnet.
Not sure if that would be required or not? Do you have a sysop.log in tg\logs that provides any clues?
That's why I was trying to run Lora...but couldn't get it to answer the phone automatically or import my message/file bases.
another machine running Frontdoor and Maximus for OS/2. Can't get a key for Frontdoor as well but fun to test with.
FWIW, I got a FrontDoor key about 6 months ago (might have been 12) - by emailing. Dont recall the mail now, but I got it from the website.
I have Lora ver 2.41b3/demo running on OS/2 Warp 4.52 and it answers the phone correctly with SIO2K. I have not been able to locate a key for it
In terms of Lora...it was setup with SIO2K...but would tell me the line was ringing...but wouldn't answer it. When I told it to answer the line...the BBS was usable. Would you be willing to provide your modem settings for me to check against mine? Know it's something stupid I
In terms of a key...talked with Robert Wolfe over on the OS/2 echo on FidoNet. Sean Dennis suggested I contact him...since he has a freeware version for OS/2 he mentioned about putting up for people to grab. As
soon as I hear back from him...will let people know in here.
My modem config is:
manual answer YES
answer command ATA|
limited hours NO
starting time 00:00
ending time 00:00
identical in setup. Both use SIO2K. On one VM I can pretty much tell
SIO2K to use port 2325 and the modem will answer correctly and pass the connect to Frontdoor. On the other VM if I try to use any port other
than 23 SIO will answer but never pass the call to the bbs. It will

OS/2. I have another machine running Frontdoor and Maximus for OS/2.

Saw in a previous message that you got a key for FD by sending him a letter. Got my FE key this way...but didn't know he was doing it for FD
as well. How hard is FD to set up for telnet...since I used to run it
back in the day. Thing is...I have dox which tell me how to work with FE-TG/2...so if FD would work...would use that.
The noncommercial version of FD was free, wasn't it? I started off with FD, then moved over to BinkleyTerm when I went to OS/2.
start wading through Bink for OS/2. I looked at the config file once and it looked like the learning curve might be steep.
It wasn't too hard. Switching from an ArcmailAttach mailer to BSO was a little tricky - make sure you tell your tosser you're changing mailer types! --- SBBSecho 3.11-Win32
I ran Frontdoor/RA back in the 90's using OS/2. The problem I see with Frontdoor today is that I can't get a key to enable all functions or to run multiline. I just use FD now to answer the phone and pass it to Maximus. I would probably be better off using Binkd for OS/2 to pass
Are there any resources out there which will show you how to setup BinkD as a frontend?
Are there any resources out there which will show you how to setup Bi as a frontend?To be truthful I have not looked. I think the way to go for me is with OS/2 is to have BinkD and Lora. Or Maximus.

With Lora having a tosser/front end...don't need BinkD. Maybe someone can tell me what's going on by this log from playing around with it this evening:

I can send you this version if you like.
I run binkd like this..
/usr/local/sbin/binkd -DC /usr/local/etc/binkd.conf
The -D causes binkd to daemonize. You may not want that until it is working for
you. When it's daemonized it runs in the background unseen. You have to read the log file to see what it is doing. The -C causes binkd to reload the config whenever you change the binkd.cfg or any included config
files so you don't have to stop and start binkd if you make changes to
the config. It'll just keep
Looking at the nodelist, a node line like this I think will work for

I found the source code for 2.99 for OS/2 at this URL:

I took the plunge today with BinkD. I can sucessfully poll my Mystic bbs now. Now to connect it to either Maximus or Lora.
Binkd has seen quite a few changes recently and it is now upto
1.1a-111. I can send you this version if you like.
If you can...please do.
That's what my node lines look like...except for the real *.cfg...the password is there...rather than 8-*'s.

Am I missing something either in Fastecho or Binkd with netmail, or
would I need another utility to toss .MSG files into .PKTs for Binkd?
Ideally I would like netmail to be that same JAM area in Telegard so I
can read them there instead of having to remember to check elsewhere.
send-if-pwdThis not a bad keyword to use but be aware of what it does. Binkd will
mail to a node if it's an insecure (no password) session. It's good if
you always send mail to known and password protected nodes.

1.1a-111. I can send you this version if you like.
Is your binkd still giving you trouble?
If it is it might be something about OS/2 I have forgotten. I recommend asking in the binkd area. There are a few there who can help you with binkd and OS/2.
Did find the binary for 1.1.27 & seems to run better...but still won't connect to any hub. If I can get the free version of Lora compiled &
connect to the Bink port on my Mystic board via dns name in the
bink.cfg. I have to use the ip address and the port number to connect. What error are you getting trying to conncet to your hub?
Here's the errors. They are different than before:

Not sure what is happening...but will have 4 days to look into it
after I get off tomorrow.
On linux signal 15 is SIGTERM, a signal sent to terminate a running program normally. I don't know if signal 15 is the same on OS/2. It must be some kind of error if the program is termianting at that point though
I could only guess what.
Tommi Koivula on probably others could help you with an OS/2 setup in
the BINKD area. Tommi actually has recent OS/2 builds of Binkd availale for freq.
Blue White also has an OS/2 binkd setup and might be able to help.
