Getting Real Close
- Thanks to all of you that have helped me thus far. I am getting real
close to having what I want but I have one last step that is just
driving me nuts. I will give a system over view and then explain the
I have two computers running. One runs MSYS packet BBS, while the
other runs BPQ32 and Dxnet.
They run stand alone fine and tied together SORT OF.
Msys Machine is a Win98 Machine. I chose win98 as a platform because
I intend to run some rig control software with it as well. That is
not an issue at the moment.
Msys runs just fine. I currently have two serial ports in use. One
with a KAM for vhf user port and HF traffic port. The other serial
port is connected to the second machine via null modem cable.
On machine 2 BPQ32 runs just fine and the nodes between MSYS TheNet
and BPQ update as they are suppose to. Communication between the two
Machine 2 currently has two serial ports and an ethernet port. One
serial port is connected via null modem to MSYS machine. The other
serial port is connected to a KPC3 controlled by AGWpe. AGW is used
because DxNet runs on top of it. I can connect to DxNet via the UHF
radio tied to AGW.
Here is what I can do at the moment.
Msys computer... Works fine as stand alone BBS
BPQ computer ... Works fine as stand alone and talking to MSYS
BPQ computer ... Telnet Input works fine through AXIP port
BPQ computer ... DxNet and AGWpe work going to UHF backbone tnc
The part I am missing is the connectivity between Port 1 (MSYS - BPQ
Serial)of BPQ and the AGW/DX Port.
The goal is to allow a user that is on 145.05 the BBS/NODE user port
to be able to connect to BPQ and then on to the DxNet.
Like I said, stand alone is working ok. Just needs refinement. I
think I am overlooking something really simple for the missing part.
I have a diagram of the system if needed.
