running AR Cluster and BPQ node.I want to run WIN FBB also using
the bpq.I run ar cluster and bpq starts now when I connect to the
node then type dx it says all ports in use but if I type bbs it
connects to the cluster.I want to fix this before adding FBB to the
computer.also ar cluster is registered in the call KC8FWD-7 here is
my bpq config I am using a KPC 3 plus just bought thanks Mike KC8FWD

HOSTINTERRUPT= 127 ; Interrupt used for BPQ host mode support

INFOMSG: ; The INFO command text follows:

Supporting the FWDBBS (KC8FWD BBS), and the FWDDX (FWDDX KC8FWD DX
The Commands are basically the same as NET/ROM, but to connect to
normal station (not another Node), you must specify a port number

connects you to the associated mailbox,and DX command to the DX

FULL_CTEXT=0 ; 0=send CTEXT to L2 connects to NODEALIAS

; Network System Parameters:
OBSINIT=5 ; Initial obsolescence set when a node is
; in a received nodes broadcast. This value
; decremented by 1 every NODESINTERVAL.
OBSMIN=4 ; When the obsolescence of a node falls below
; value that node's information is not
; a subsequent nodes broadcast.
NODESINTERVAL= 60 ; Nodes broadcast interval in minutes
IDINTERVAL=10 ; 'IDMSG' UI broadcast interval in minutes,
BTINTERVAL=0 ; The BTEXT broadcast interval in minutes,
L3TIMETOLIVE= 25 ; Max L3 hops
L4RETRIES=3 ; Level 4 retry count
L4TIMEOUT=120 ; Level 4 timeout in seconds s/b > FRACK x
L4DELAY=10 ; Level 4 delayed ack timer in seconds
L4WINDOW=4 ; Level 4 window size
MAXLINKS=30 ; Max level 2 links
MAXNODES=120 ; Max nodes in nodes table
MAXROUTES=35 ; Max adjacent nodes
MAXCIRCUITS= 64 ; Max L4 circuits
MINQUAL=150 ; Minimum quality to add to nodes table
BBSQUAL=1 ; BBS quality multiplier, (BBSQUAL/256) ,
; NODE. Used to limit spread of BBS node info
; the network to your required service area.
; APPL1QUAL if used overrides BBSQUAL.
BUFFERS=255 ; Packet buffers - 255 means allocate as many
; possible, normally about 130, depending
; table sizes.
; TNC default parameters:
PACLEN=128 ; Max packet size (236 max for net/rom)
; PACLEN is a problem! The ideal size depends on the link(s) over
; packet will be sent. For a session involving another node, we have
; what is at the far end. Ideally each node should have the
; combine and then refragment messages to suit each link segment -
; there are more BPQ nodes about than 'other' ones, I'll do it. When
; is accessed directly, things are a bit easier, as we know at least
; about the link. So, currently there are two PACLEN params, one here
; in the PORTS section. This one is used to set the initial value for
; sessions via other nodes and for sessions initiated from here. The
; used for incoming direct (Level 2) sessions. In all cases the TNC
; command can be used to override the defaults.
TRANSDELAY=1 ; Transparent node send delay in seconds
; Level 2 Parameters:
; T1 (FRACK), T2 (RESPTIME) and N2 (RETRIES) are now in the PORTS
T3=180 ; Link validation timer in seconds
IDLETIME=900 ; Idle link shutdown timer in seconds
; Configuration Options:
AUTOSAVE=1 ; Saves BPQNODES.dat upon program exit
BBS=1 ; 1 = BBS support included, 0 = No BBS support
NODE=1 ; Include switch support
HIDENODES=1 ; If set to 1, nodes beginning with a #
; require a 'N *' command to be displayed.
; The *** LINKED command is intended for use by gateway software, and
; has been expressed that it could be misused. It is recommended that

; A = allows use by application program

; AX25 port definitions:
; The LOOPBACK port simulates a connection by looping input to output.
; To test, start BPQTerminal and enter: 'C 1 XXNODE via XX0XX'
; In this example '1' is the LOOPBACK port number. The LOOPBACK port
; provided for testing purposes would rarely be included in an
