1012Full DCD signal but will still transmit

      My BPQ ports will transmit on top of someone even if the TNC shows it having
      a full good DCD. IT will just tromp on them anyway.
      In the old BPQ (which is on my dead machine) I seem to remember a port
      command to stop that. What was it?

      Hi Dave, I use N 4 in my telnet forwarding files and it works fine. If you use N 4 on telnet forwarding then it can figure out what protocol to use on a forward connect.

      They have been able to connect to me until I changed this yesterday. That's when the problem faired up.
      I moved the bbs.sys, forward.sys and the /fwd files to the new bbs so they are the same as they have always
      been. it's got me puzzled.

      In the Forwarding of the WinFbb configuration Tool, check the Box,
      Do Not Use Checksum with X-Protocol, Make sure you have a period
      in front of you call sign in the V Statement
      V .yourcall$Wyourpass word$W, if you are forwarding to a J or Tnos
      station use V $Wyourcall$Wyourpas sword$W
      The period stops the Echo and start the file Tranfer, the $W for
      sends the needed CR for the handshaking between FBB and Jnos, also
      if it is a J or TNos Station uncheck all the X-Protocol boxes in the
      forward, J ot Tnos is not RLI Compatable (X-Option) I forward to two
      JNos stations by Telnet with no problems..

      getting past the initial first connection without compression
      usually clears the matter up. After you have synched in with your
      partner, then enable compression again.

      on their end. NOS must be prepared to accept FBB style compression
      by a sysop command.

      > It took me ages to get this to work, and I was never quite sure
      what I changed to get it going. I suggest first you make sure that
      your BPQ32 installation is working, say using BPQTerminal. Then
      import someone's working FBB configuration. As you probably know,
      all the important FBB configuration is held in the registry, in key
      [HKEY_LOCAL_ MACHINE\Software \WinFbb]. WinFBB exports it's
      configuration as a regedit-compatible text file. So all you need to
      do is get someones file, rename it with a .reg extension, and double-
      click it. Of course you will then have to change callsigns,
      identities, etc to suit your station, but at least you will be
      starting from a working system. It might be wise to remove any
      existing WinFBB entry from the registry first (usual warnings about
      using regedit apply!).
