6718Re: [BPQ32] New install of BPQ: mailchat problems
- Sep 30, 2011Hi Jim,
You cannot run RMS Express at the same time as you run Winmor TNC for BPQ. They may be sharing the same port number, so RMS Express will conflict with BPQ trying to use that port. You are best to go download the WINMOR TNC from the Winmor yahoo group. Extract that to a Winmor TNC folder in BPQ. You may want to change the default port number of Winmor TNC for BPQ so that if RMS Express is started, it does not conflict with the winmor running on BPQ.
Hope that gets you moving forward again....

I've now managed to get a decent set of basic functionality running.
I can send and receive messages via RMS or peer to peer with airmail users. I think I got this pretty well working / figured out.
My issue presently is with the winmor stuff. I've got RMS Express installed, and its able to start the winmor TNC and things look all ok with it. However, when I configured bpq to do winmor, it tries to start it; I do get the winmor connection monitor window pop up, but I also get a nice "windows error reporting" message about the winmor TNC. If I double-click the TNC myself, I also get that. yet, RMS express works. I tried copying the exact TNC from rms express over to the winmor folder in bpq, but no luck.
Is there some magic / is this a known issue?

That was in fact my issue, thanks!

You need to go through each tab in the main config dialog, and save it, even if you haven’t made any changes to that tab.
Tomorrow, Oct 1 is Simulated Emergency Test (SET), for which I'm in
the process of setting up the equipment I plan on using that day.
We make extensive use of winlink in our region (Eastern Washington
state), and in the past I've always found the existing winlink
software programs insufficient as they're always missing a piece here
or there. After reading more about bpq and bpqmail, it looks like
that might actually be the "silver bullet" to the winlink problem. as
such, I'm trying to set that up now (Yea, I know...last minute).
My goal is to get:
BPQ with 1 packet port (TNC)
1 winmor port
BPQmail running for minimum 1 user
That one user will be accessed over local network with POP/SMTP on
BPQmail will allow for delivery of messages to WL2K infrastructure, or
when a specific route is set up, direct Peer to Peer.
So, to this end, I'm working on step one: getting packet working.
I've got a basic BPQmail node running, and I'm able to connect to it
and connect to other nodes through it, make connections from the
BPQterminal, etc. Its announcing nodes as I expect, and all that
appears to be working correctly.
So, now I'm trying to get bpqmail minimally functional. I've launched
it, and it alerts me that the config is incomplete, so I click OK,
enter all the config data, and try and continue. It then alerts me
again that config is incomplete, and opens the config when I click OK.
the BBS Call is highlighted (WI7EOC). I've got BBS Call set to
WI7EOC, SYSOP call to WI7EOC, H Route set to #EWA.WA.US.NOAM, Base
Directory left to default (which is accurate), BBS Appl Number 1, BBS
Streams 3, and port numbers for pop3 and smtp port with "enable remote
access" checked. FBB UI unchecked, refuse bulls unchecked, and nntp
I also noticed that anytime I press "tab" in the config window boxes,
it takes me back to BBS Call and highlights everything in it.
So, I don't know what its complaining about...How do I get it to
accept my config?
