      K4GBB needs to check his V Statement in your forwarding block, he is probably missing the

      Period Example:   V .N9PMO$WPassWord$W


      The Period stops the echo and starts the Handshaking upon connection.


      I will send you the Kiss stuff to your E-Mail Address.

      Well. It's up and running just fine. I have one forward protocol error with one

      BBS and the rest work fine. I would say it's not me. BPQ 410D is sweet

      and working with FBB. The telnet port is working just fine.


      This is also running on a machine with my CC Cluster AND AR Cluster

      DX nodes! They all are playing nicely together.


      The only thing left is the RF ports. Mike! Got an example KISS port

      for 410D?? It's been years since I ran a kiss port as I had the DRSI all

      the time.

      After running WinFbb 7.01-35 also know as 7.01A for a couple of years I finally gave up and switched

      To WFBB 7.00E 32 Bit with BPQ32U latest Version 410D, to many BUGS in 7.01A.

       I also use Telpac for Winlink connections, AGWPE isn’t needed as the BPQ32U has an AGWtoBPQ look a like

       for programs needing AGWPE but if you want, AGWPE can be used with BPQ32U, for me AGWPE is just one

      less program I don’t need running.


      One problem with all of the 16 Bit WFBB 7.00E, G and I is the processor usage is 100% where as the

      32 Bit 7.00E runs nicely at 6%, if you are running W2K or XP a couple of changes need to be made

      to make the Maintenance (Housekeeping) program to work.


      As to a list of active BBS’S yes you are right it is hard to find, I will be more then happy to help you out

      With all needed Programs and Files for BPQ and WFBB.


      BTW most Winlink Uses/Nodes are switching from TELPAC to ether Packlink or RMS BETA.

      Hey guys/gals,

      I'm seriously contemplating a new PBBS for my area here in Northern
      Kentucky and have a few questions maybe this group can help answer for me.

      Is there a good list of current PBBS's out there for the USA? I've
      looked around some on the net, but I haven't really found a one-stop
      listing. I find some single state lists and most of them are really
      old lists.

      I've lightly perused over some of the documents out there, BTW the
      best are found here on this group. I gather there are some bugs in
      FBB when used with BPQ32? Just curious what these are in brief?

      Anyone on the list willing to give me some do's, dont's, and things to
      watch out for with BPQ32 and WinFBB?

      Latest version of WinFBB (which looks to be 7.00i) good to use, or is
      one of the prior versions better? Sometimes the latest and greatest
      isn't always the greatest ;-)

      I gather the Win32 WinFBB is pretty much Alpha software and the Win16
      stuff is much more stable?

      Can I, or better stated, has anyone ran WinFBB and BPQ32 alongside
      WinLink on the same TNC/Radio? AGW the route to go for this if it's
      possible? Would kind of like to offer a WinLink telpac station for
      the area, but maximize existing equipment if possible.

      I'd probably have to go with a VHF/UHF local port and forward via the
      internet. Pros and cons of this? How would I go about, or who do I
      contact, for forwarding arrangements and so forth?

      Thanks in advance for your patience with my questions!
