So I think what I want is point node setups for this. But I really don't know where to even start.
For sure! I think many of us do this.
There are several methods you can use, but one easy way is to setup an echomail node for your point in Mystic and have it "toss to a directory" rather than use binkp or another transport method. The packets just get copied directly to your point's inbound directory and then mail gets picked up in the corresponding outbound directory by your Mystic system.
The only thing I do differently on my systems is I let BinkP handle it all.. I have a different port number for my point systems, and Mystic is my Hub for all of them.. Currently, I run a Mystic, Synchro, C-Net
Yeah, that makes a lot of sense to me as well, especially if you have boards spread out over different hardware, as I do right now. I've setup shared folders to do the directory toss in the past, but when you have different operating systems and so on, just keeping it on bink sounds
like the way to go.
Let me ask you something.. How does that folder system work for you?
When I first put up my C-Net Amiga board, I was considering going this route as I had issues getting a front end running with it. I was going
to have a shared folder on my Server and point both boards to it to pick
It seemed to work OK. I was using that method with PCBoard a while back.
I did have some issues with netmail not working properly, but that may have been a configuration or routing issue.
I'm running D'Bridge with Renegade as a point system right now, moving
the mail with binkd, and to be honest, I don't want to change the setup because it's working so well.

I have a Renegade point system with D'Bridge as the front-end and I just set that up to use bink with my Mystic system and it works fine. I'll probably use directory tossing at some point when I get everything setup the way I want it.
Thank you very much, I think this is exactly what I was unsure of! Once I configured the echomail node for my point all the other pieces fell togethe for me. I've now (more or less) got OpenXP working even though I haven't entirely figured out how to use it yet.
binkd server for that. Are there even Windows builds for the classic binkd? didn't dig too deeply so I ended up grabbing Argus for Windows.
So, if I understand correctly, D'Bridge is basically that, a bridge between the BBS and a binkd server? Passing echomail between the two in formats tha they can work with?
