Thanks for the quick response, I see from your examples that my problem is addressing I had been using SB ALL INSTEAD OF
SB ALL@ALL THAT MADE THE FORWARDING WORK. I have had the DOS
board since about 1994 with the decline of packet I never had anyone to forward to. A couple of years ago I joined this group down loaded the 32 bit version of winfbb along with the g8bpq which worked effortlessly in the DOS version, anyway I now forward to my second station which is 20 miles away. I have one station at home and the other at work( I am self employed ) I do have another question about the 32 bit version winfbb 700i I donot have a server directory and I cannot find any server programs my systems complains that the wp server didn't start, although addressing does come from wp
I am particuly interested in the multi server.
thanks for your time and if anyone has info please jump in
