9784LinBPQ Mail Import
- Feb 24, 2013RIchard,A normal user can upload a message, but only a BBS can use the <call construct,. as I see that as a security issueI've implemented an IMPORT Filename command, which requires SYSOP status, and reads all the messages from Filename. The format is the normalSP/SBSubjectBody/EXSP/SBSubjectBody/EX..There is no mechanism to drive this from a timer at the moment.I've just uploaded the files - version 22.214.171.12473, John

Thanks John, looking forward to that version .. Would there be a way of something similar to FBB where a directory is also used to hold a text file which gets ‘sucked’ into LinBPQ?? .. Why I ask is that I have written PHP and Perl scripts to automate a lot of things, using a ‘mail.in’ directory .. Must admit I also have scripts for telnet sessions (much cleaner) which connect and pass text to FBB – works well – and FBB doesn’t require that the connection must be from a BBS – a user can connect and upload a text file …

The windows version had an import option. It isn't in the current LinBPQ, but will be in the next version.
I would like to ‘import’ messages/bulletins from ASCII text files which were created by a LinFBB BBS (ZS0MEE) to LinBPQ .. The only way I can see it being done is by a telnet session to LinBPQ .. In FBB one can copy a s uitable text file to a directory and on the next minute FBB will ‘suck’ the contents of the text file into its system ..
But when I do try a telnet session, LinBPQ complains that I must be a BBS !! .. The very first line e.g. “SB SARL @ ZAF $ENG20130224 < ZS0MEE” is what triggers the error message . Apparently the “<” is the culprit ..
I can log into LinBPQ with a telnet session but when I try typing ‘[BPQ-126.96.36.199-IHJM$]’ to fool LinBPQ into thinking I am a BBS, LinBPQ isn’t fooled !! …
Any thoughts on this problem ???
