HTML Page Problem
John et al
I have had to reset up my RPi + TNC_pi etc after lightning took out the old units.
Everything working fine re the RMS Gate function and OTA access to the BBS functions. But using the Web to access the control panel [Mail Server Pages] is seeing a heap problems. Some page are showing "Cannot be displayed'. Under [users] my call sign does not show any details and very very frequently I get "Sorry - have to restart the session" (I.E log in again). Hmm!
John I would like to give you my URL and log on details to see this but nervous doing this in a public place. I'm qrz so if you email me (I can't find your email address) I'll let you have them. In the meantime I am going to look for the old HTNL pages I hopefully archived somewhere.
Replying to my own post to stand folks down
Went back to OLD HTML pages AND OLD linbpq = Perfect.
Then re-downloaded (whilst in the Rpi) the newer pilinbpq and HTML pages unzipped etc etc and again things worked out perfectly. Last time I downloaded and unzipped on a Windows machine then copied stuff over. I'm thinking this may have introduced some of those DOS/Unix CR/LF problems. Phew - glad this is sorted out. :)
- The polling function that causes the BPQ node to poll local NetRom nodes
every few minutes has made me persona non-grata with the local NetRom
node SYSOP, who doesn't want his system stressed my constant activity -
to no rational or useful purpose.
I tried the commands shared with me by Mike to allegedly get BPQ to cut
this activity out - and at best it works for a few hours and then goes
right back to it again.
Finally, I had to cut out the BPQ32 node function altogether, as this
turned out to be the only way to get BPQ32 to stop this behavior.
The BBS without node support does not show up on local node lists, but
this is a small price to pay, in order to finally get my reputation back
with the local Packet folks.
If BPQ32 ever does get a working option to turn the polling 'feature'
off, I'll be glad to go back to supporting NetRom node services - but
not until then.

I sure we covered this but just to make sure the spelling correct,
NOKEEPALIVES=1 Yes with a S at the end, I usually place it right under the
SYNC or DLLTYPE I don't think it really makes a difference where it is
Now the important part is after adding NOKEEPALIVES=1 you need to clear all
nodes, if you are running the latest version of BPQ32 V 184.108.40.206
Using BPQ Terminal, first type password (all one word) (enter) then type
NODE DEL ALL this will clear all nodes, if the BPQNODES.DAT file isn't
cleared in one way or the other the Node will still continue to poll, if you
are running a previous
Version of BPQ32 shut down all BPQ programs including FBB if you are running
Make sure the bpq32.exe has shut down by using the task manager, then open
BPQ32 Configuration folder, delete the BPQNODE.DAT folder.
Restart programs as usual, the next time BPQ is restarted the BPQNODES.DAT
will be there, so no worries it will start saving nodes right a way.
One exception, AEA TNC'S and possibility MFJ have a function to cause nodes
broadcast to be active, I do not remember the command but it does over ride
the NOKEEPALIVES=1 some how.
I used to have a station in Michigan and with a band opening the polling
would start all over again, very aggravating.
Either True Nodes or NETROMS added to a TNC will cause the polling.
Let me know how you turn out.
