If I have this wrong, then that means I should have the ‘MEEBPQ’ field not as an alias but as the callsign of the BBS I am trying to forward to ??? .. Which also means I can have only, what, 8 or 16 BBS’s to forward to ( amongst ‘other’ applications) ??
My Telnet port etc is fine and works in every other respect …

The APPLICATION line has nothing to do with your external forwarding, it is an internal command.
Ok, the easiest way to set up forwarding is to use your BBS ALIAS, in my case it is WAIBBS, in your case it is MEEBPQ, so in FBB you create your port to forward to MEEBPQ, like this.
IF H 00-23
L B 230
L O 3
C C ZS0MEE 127.0.0.1 8011
And for the LinBPQ BBS telnet port.
CTEXT=Welcome To ZS0MEE's Telnet Server\nEnter ? For List Of Commands\n\n
Now it all depends on how your neighbours will connect to you, if they are using Netrom, then they will not need a password set, if they are going to Telnet to you, you will need to set up each USER in the USER line in the Telnet port, thus for me if I were to Telnet to you, you would have to set
This would allow me to Telnet to your BBS and be logged in direct to your BBS.
John, you might like to confirm I have the ABOVE USER line correct ?
Dick, I will set up a forward script in my LinFBB to you, I`ll send you a password in another email.

Work out your co-ordinates in decimal format and then in your BPQ web page in Chat configuration, in “Map Position”, enter your co-ords there .. Mine are “-26.25536 27.92135” … Once you click on “Update Maps”, look at the above URL again and if you got it right, you should be down on that ‘little’ island down deep south *Grin …
