Ok thanks for that. I guess I don't understand the sysop mode in BPQ. How do I get into it via RF?

Thanks for the thought of adding an unhold function.
I did a goggle for kaZehk but could not find anything about the remote system.
Could you send me in the right direction so I could use it until you get the update finished

And I'm not convinced that the Windows platform is really reliable enough to run a remote BBS. However, I'll look into adding unhold to the command line sysop facilites, and some form of remote sysop authentication. The system used for remote authentication of rig control commands is pretty secure, but requires the two machine clocks to be syncronised, which isn't easy without an internet link.73,John-----Original Message-----

Subject: Re: [BPQ32] Re: unholding held msgsIn 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 node.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.73 DE Charles, N5PVL----- Original Message -----From: JerrySent: Thursday, February 03, 2011 10:42 AMSubject: RE: [BPQ32] Re: unholding held msgs
I believe he said internet was not an option at this location… 73 Jerry
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 radio.

Best I can tell "unholding" messages and the hold flag on new uers has to be done on the local BBS console. I think T-type messages are the only messages that can be status manipulated on RF....beyond the usual K #, KM and etc.
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 over RF.
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.
