Thanks for the reply. Somebody told me that you were "sailing the
world" now you
have retired, so I do hope you had a great time.
I tried again with the Cluster, but I found it difficult because FBB
also uses AGW and BPQ
so the two were in conflict! I do have the Satgate machine, so I think
it best to run the Cluster
on there, and talk to the BBS over the LAN with BPQ.
The problem with forwarding. I start a session with GB7VLS,
running the older FBB
version. All goes well for a while and then it all stops, no apparent
reason why. My BBS
is trying to send, the STA light blinks but the PTT does not key. I
have found that if I leave
it for several minutes, it reverts back to normal, but it takes a long
time. I was wondering
if it was a timer within your node software causing this?
Incidentally, I have been told that N5IN is now writing some of your
new node code,
I am running the 4.09U, latest version.

I don't think you should have problems running the latest 32bit FBB
on the same machine as AR-Cluster. I've run it here, although only
in a test rather than 'live' environment.
When you say you have problems forwarding to a BBS running 16 bit
software, is that DOS FBB, WIN FBB or something else? If you could
send me a trace of it going wrong, I may be able to help.
