1542RE: [BPQ32] FBB & BPQ RE: KV7J
- Jan 2, 2009
When we talk about 32 Bit version of WinFbb, there is two versions,
1 WFBB 7.00E 32 Bit
2 WinFbb 7.01-35 Known as 7.01a
the 16 bit and 32 Bit 7.00 series are the same, the one big difference is 7.00 16 Bit
uses 100% of the processor were as the 32 version 7.00E (the only 32 Bit Version)
will run at about 6%
now the other version 7.01a I would avoid, it does have several bugs that are un repairable
unless we can get the source code for the .35
I will write and send you the Port.sys using BPQ as the first port you can then add the Telnet Ports as needed

Thanks for the quick response, Mike. 2130 local here so will not play with it tonight and leave it for the Friday evening or Saturday. I am one of those guys who has to work tomorrow.
Never considered the idea of using those dll's or that type of configuration so I am still way in left field, not even close. I have no familiarity with BPQ.
First quesion, I am currently running WFBB 16 bit. Would it clear things up if I configured and ran WFBB 32?

Good Evening Edward,
This will be a bit confusing, depending on what version of WFBB 16 or 32 Bit you are running,
You need to copy the following from the BPQ32 Related Files:
To the FBB\BIN folder Replace existing, it is best to make BPQ the Port allocated in FBB, if other then 1st port
Rename beacon1.sys to same port, example beacon2.sys etc.
Open FBB Configuration, Communications Configuration (second for last page) Select COM 8, and TFWIN, Save,
Next, Ports Configuration, (last page) PORT 1 Select COM 8 MUX=Number of Ports set in BPQCFG.txt,
WA8DED, Gateway, the rest of the settings, NB Ch etc. set as needed, Save Exit, Ether use File, Scan System Files if FB
Is running or Start FBB, NOTE: if you are using the AGWtoBPQ.EXE Must start First, otherwise WFBB will start BPQ32.dll
The original BPQ/VXD and BPQ selection are no longer valid for BPQ32.
If you have any problems please feel free to contact me.

Subject: [BPQ32] FBB & BPQ
Have been trying for several days to get FBB to play with BPQ with no joy. Am running WFBB and the latest 'g' version of PBQ. Have made the two additions to HKLM, both the FBBUIMask at 3 and FBBAPPL to 3 since that is the port I would like FBB to run under as indicated in BPQCFG.
Have tried to configure BPQTNC2 and feed FBB into it in an attempt to make it think it was seeing a real TNC and also tried configuring VCOM to do the same with the result of WFBB tryiny to start but them stating it can not find the BPQ driver. Have never made it past this error.
I guess the first question is: Is there a FBB to PBQ driver that is not listed in the docs... neaither BPQDLL.DLL or BPQCODE.386 seem to be the answer.
Curreintly BPQ works fine. I have RMs running under it, beaconing, answering external calls and working with BPQTerm. WFBB is operational on its own. It has been running for about 4 years on this computer.
Anyone have an idea? I know I am probably about one keystroke away from having it work but I have just found the proper combination.
