RE: [BPQ32] WinFbb connection to BPQ32
Sorry for the confusion with port.sys, there is no need to use the VCOM
in BPQ32, this is why you use the
TFWIN and WA8DED selections for the BPQ32 Port, I know this gets a bit
confusing as many that
Install WinFbb 7.00 series by nature would select BPQ VXD in the WinFbb
And BPQ in the Ports Config, the BPQ VXD and BPQ selections were used
with the DOS version
Of BPQ Code, (No-Longer Used) without the source code for WinFbb John
Make the needed changes to WinFbb for BPQ32.
John had to make the changes in the TFWIN, and the WA8DED.DLL'S now
renamed to TFWIN, TFWIN32..DLL
For the 32 bit version of WinFbb and bpqded32.dll
For WinFbb to communicate with BPQ32, the following is set:
In the Communication Configure section of WinFbb, select ether COM 8 or
10 then select TFWIN
Then in the last Config window of WinFbb Ports Configuration, select
Port 1, select WA8DED, then
Select in the drop down window for the COM: 8 or 10 this will be the
port you selected in previous
Window, Communication Configure, now you can use any PORT x how ever if
you use a PORT:x
Other then 1 you need to make the change in the Beacon1.sys.
I did make a mistake in my instructions referring to the bpqded32.dll,
this should be copied to the
Windows\System32 Folder for W2K and newer, for W98 and ME it would be
copied to just the
The TFWIN.DLL and tfwin32.dll (only for 32 bit FBB) are copied to the
FBB will be able to connect to BPQMailChat threw BPQ32 node, or you can
use FBB to telnet into
BPQ32 Telnet Server then FBB, this is also true for users, BPQMailChat
can Telnet Inbound the
User just would need to poll your BPQMailChat.
I hope this helps.

Subject: [BPQ32] WinFbb connection to BPQ32
Mike, we have been reading all of your documents on the connection
between WinFbb and BPQ32 but we are a little confused.
1: In your example of PORT.SYS - you use Telnet port 6300 & BPQ32 port
of COM1: --- Can we use a BPQ32 Virtual port for the connection between
BPQ32 & WinFbb.
2: As per example in 1: above - With WA8DED on both ends of COM1:
connection, can we communicate between BPQ32 & WinFbb using the COM1:
port [without a TNC on the end of the COM1: port]
3: We have only 2 forwarding users left, who use Telnet 6300. So can we
still use WinFbb as per your setup, & forward from the VK2DOT-2 WinFbb
to my PQMail BBS via cOM1: port. Then to all my other forwardin partners
from BPQMail BBS.
