2007Re: [BPQ32] block node entries
- Jul 20, 2009Ron,
Actually, it looks like John added the blocking
feature in the latest release as 'default'. So,
I do not need to change anything.
Left with the default setting, I should not see
any Node entries other than the ones that I have
setup in the bpqaxip.cfg file. So far, I haven't
even though there are a couple of systems trying
to send me their broadcasts. Given that, it
seems to be working fine.
If I understand things right, the
'DONTCHECKSOURCECALL' option would 'add' a
callsign-ssid to the Nodes table even though
there wasn't any corresponding entry in the AXIP
file which is the opposite of what I am trying
