Sorry, guys. I should have been clear about the version I am using. - I am
running WinFBB 7.01.35 alpha right now, the 32-bit version.
I have never seen any evidence that the housekeeping function is working on
my copy of WinFBB32 - or the copy that I had before that.
Is anyone else experiencing the same problem with 32-bit WinFBB?
My problem with 16-bit WinFBB has been in trying to find archive files that
are not corrupted. After dowloading bad archive files from three different
online sources, I gave up and went back to using the 32-bit version.
BPQMailChat handles my activity on the SkipNets just fine, but I need some
of FBB's features for the HamRadioNet stuff, to keep it on the up and up. -
I'll keep fooling around with it until I get both BBS systems talking to the
same switch, at the same time.
Right now I am having to do one network at a time - by shutting down one BBS
program, changing frequency and then bringing up the other BBS program. I
have two HF rigs now, so I'm wanting to run both networks at the same time
24/7 , and not have to change things around twice a day.

Hi CHarles. If you can get DosFBB to run in a
dos window, you can interface it with the switch by using the
bpq16.dll that john has in the related files folder
of bpq32. you rename that DLL to TFWIN.DLL and put
it in your fbb directory. Then setup your port.sys
to use the TFWIN interface rather than ay serial
ports. Then you use BPQ to do the serial comms with the tnc.
This works like a charm with winfbb16 but I am not so sure
dos fbb will run in a dos window under 98.
If you want to debug your FBB16 to houseclean, take
another long look at runfbb.bat in your fbb/bin directory.
It has some important paths that need to be set. When
fbb does message filtering, white pages updates, and
housecleaning it loads and runs a bunch of MS-DOS
programs to do it. I think the paths to those need to
be setup in runfbb.bat
Good luck and best 73,
