In the past, I have used the system secribed by
KA7EHK extensively. It works very well, and you can of course update the
password string from time to time for added security. A password string 256
characters long that you match six or seven random characters at a time over
the air would be pretty difficult to hack. - I never had a security problem,
and at one time remote-SYSOP'ed two BBS stations in addition to a FlexNet
The remote node SYSOP setup was easy... The node
computer had a copy of BBS software in it that acted as a file server, and
remote reset switch. It was not used as a BBS, I only used the remote SYSOP
tools to maintain another bit of software in the same machine.
It's a sort of standard, I can think of three
packet programs which use that system, off-hand. There are more, especially if
you count the xNOS variants seperately.

Why not just use a program like TeamViewer and remotely
log into the computer and operate as normal? Couple of us use this all
the time. You can put Ham Radio Deluxe and even control the

I think some of reasoning
behind this is for security concerns. Anyone could forge a sysop call into
their TNC, log in on RF and do damage. If the message was held due to
inappropriate content, then you don't want to accidentally be reading it
Guess in your case this sucks ;-) Maybe John can do some
form of sysop password that uses a challenge/response type system (does no
good to send the password over the air).
I'd also like the ability to
manipulate rig control while on remote. Most of the time I do my BBS work
while on MSRDP or LogMeIn remote sessions, but there are times where telnet
is more practical for me.
