RE: [BPQ32] Re: New Telnet Server with WinFbb
MessageOk,You can't manually telnet to FBBPORT - the connect has to come from FBB. Although F6FBB calls his protocol telnet, in fact it is a raw TCP session, and doesn't follow telnet rules.The format for the forward file is:C C VK2DOT 192.168.1.4 6300
V VK2DOT$Wvk2dot$WBBSThe last field the the application name of your BPQ BBS73,John

Thanks John, Sorry about the hornets nest we disturbed!!
Going back to Question 2:
I have set - TCPPORT=6301 & FBBPORT=6300 in BPQ32 Telnet Server.
Using a different PC & type telnet 192.168.1.4 6301, add my USER & PASSWORD - We goto the BPQ32 command line. & all is OK
If we type telnet 192.168.1.4 6300 from another PC or from a Fbb BBS
P C [This is the Telnet port on my Linux/FBB]
C C VK2DOT 192.168.1.4 6300
If using manual telnet to BPQ32 - telnet 192.168.1.4 6300, you have to add an extra <cr> before USER & PASSWORD, then we go to BPQ32 command line, NOT to BPQMail.
