Peter and the group,
As the BBS is designed to work as a BPQ32
application, it will have access to the full node facilites, including
ax/udp, that BPQ32 provides. Issues such as the Baycom drivers would be
part of the base BPQ32 development, rather than the BBS software. I did
in fact start looking at a Baycom Serial Modem driver last winter, and
it should be possible to write one for the W2K/XP platform, but only
for machines with real (ie not USB) serial ports, and these are getting
more difficult to find. I do have a Baycom Parallel port 9600 modem,
but I'm not sure if I have an interface spec for it.
FIle Export/Import will be included in some
form, but I haven't decided exactly what yet. Likewise I haven't
decided yet what SMTP/Telnet facilites to include. I'd love to see an
all amateur network with no need for linking over the Internet, but
accept that is not possible at the moment. If we have to use the
Internet, I don't feel telnet is the right choice, but as my software
will have to interface to other systems it may be unavoidable.
My original intention was not to include 7+ and
related stuff such as REQFIL/REQIR, as I suppose I see the system as
primarily for messaging rather than file transfer, but this has been
mentioned by a few of you, so I hay reconsider.
I'm not sure what you mean by with or without
