• BSO Style Mailers

    From Russell Tiedt@5:7105/1 to All on Sun Nov 12 06:54:24 2006
    Hi,

    I need a BSO style/type mailer as BinkleyTerm no longer wants to compile here.

    Suggestions please, need it to support a node in Zimbabwe with a"strange" setup, want to run it with Squish.

    Thanks,

    Russell

    What kind of problems are you having getting it to compile? What platform?

    I've successfully used ifcico (which can handle both POTS & IP calls
    & is packaged in Debian) with the Husky project programs (hpt, etc), so
    that may be something to look at... (If there are issues with how they
    name outbound directories, just use sym links...)

    Don't have current version of source for that, but if it has Debian packages, then I should be able to "apt-get install" it ... ,

    Symlink ifcico -> husky or husky -> ifcico ... ?

    Don't have any error msg's handy, trying to compile on Debian and or Slackware

    Hmm, you know there is a package in the apt repo that has binkp precompiled.

    Hi Russell!

    .... as BinkleyTerm no longer wants to compile here.
    Which version?
    All versions I have source for "bsrc_xr6", "btxexh6", "btxexh7".

    I have two out of 3 of those, as wel... Tried a comple of the most recent (which, admittedly, are not very recent...<g>), & ended up with errors;
    looking for a curses library, if I recall correctly...

    Yep; package name = ifcico


    Symlink ifcico -> husky or husky -> ifcico ... ?

    it's been awhile, & don't recall for sure; basically, I don't think they create/name zone outbound directories quite the same. Think I basically let hpt create the outbound directories the way it thought it should, then created symlinks as neccessary to ensure that binkd & ifcico could see the same directories...

    Okay, got btxe_xh6/7 to compile here, got libncurses5-dev installed here, required buy husky(?), but problem was caused by script to remove DOS carrige returns in makefile not working as advertised, try'ed another similar script on the makefile and it now compiles, at least both btxe versions ...

    Right, just gotten it installed, but the config file example is overkill for a FidoNet POTS only point, with BinkD to the main system ...

    Hmmm .... you don't happen to have a cut down version of the config file handy do you? <grin>

    For ifcico, you mean? Rather depends on what you mean by "cut down"...<g>

    I do have examples of a single config file I use for ifcico by itsself (for pots, IFC, & ITN calls), which I normally name ifcico.conf. it's not exactly short (the version I'm looking at is 249 lines) but that's because it's got a lot of the original configuration remarks in it... Don't think I have a copy of it online publically right now, but I could make it or something like it available for freq (and/or ftp, http); and/or available via email or something...

    Yes, ifcico and crashmail, tho I figure I am nearly finished with the crashmail.perf file, but the way the routing in crashmail works still puzzles me ...

    It has also just occured to me that if I use ifcico, I have no need to use BinkD as MBSE BBS can handle ifcico protocol ...

    I don't need the bits for e-mail and news ...

    For e-mail rusty@rusty.org.za should work fine ...
