      Hey guys/gals,

      I'm seriously contemplating a new PBBS for my area here in Northern
      Kentucky and have a few questions maybe this group can help answer for me.

      Is there a good list of current PBBS's out there for the USA? I've
      looked around some on the net, but I haven't really found a one-stop
      listing. I find some single state lists and most of them are really
      old lists.

      I've lightly perused over some of the documents out there, BTW the
      best are found here on this group. I gather there are some bugs in
      FBB when used with BPQ32? Just curious what these are in brief?

      Anyone on the list willing to give me some do's, dont's, and things to
      watch out for with BPQ32 and WinFBB?

      Latest version of WinFBB (which looks to be 7.00i) good to use, or is
      one of the prior versions better? Sometimes the latest and greatest
      isn't always the greatest ;-)

      I gather the Win32 WinFBB is pretty much Alpha software and the Win16
      stuff is much more stable?

      Can I, or better stated, has anyone ran WinFBB and BPQ32 alongside
      WinLink on the same TNC/Radio? AGW the route to go for this if it's
      possible? Would kind of like to offer a WinLink telpac station for
      the area, but maximize existing equipment if possible.

      I'd probably have to go with a VHF/UHF local port and forward via the
      internet. Pros and cons of this? How would I go about, or who do I
      contact, for forwarding arrangements and so forth?

      Thanks in advance for your patience with my questions!

        After running WinFbb 7.01-35 also know as 7.01A for a couple of years I finally gave up and switched

        To WFBB 7.00E 32 Bit with BPQ32U latest Version 410D, to many BUGS in 7.01A.

         I also use Telpac for Winlink connections, AGWPE isn’t needed as the BPQ32U has an AGWtoBPQ look a like

         for programs needing AGWPE but if you want, AGWPE can be used with BPQ32U, for me AGWPE is just one

        less program I don’t need running.

         

        One problem with all of the 16 Bit WFBB 7.00E, G and I is the processor usage is 100% where as the

        32 Bit 7.00E runs nicely at 6%, if you are running W2K or XP a couple of changes need to be made

        to make the Maintenance (Housekeeping) program to work.

         

        As to a list of active BBS’S yes you are right it is hard to find, I will be more then happy to help you out

        With all needed Programs and Files for BPQ and WFBB.

         

        BTW most Winlink Uses/Nodes are switching from TELPAC to ether Packlink or RMS BETA.

          A good concrete list is hard to come by Jeff. But to get some sort of
          idea of who is connecting to who, visit this web page:

          http://fwnet.jp/?WWW_MENU=m030200

          The information presented is accurate and dynamic, it changes from
          time-to-time, It is however incomplete. Not every forwarding
          partnership out there is displayed.

          Several files that come packaged with FBB are outdated, they will not
          function correctly on a newer O/S. There are updated replacement
          files you will need to obtain. The files you will need will depend on
          which version of FBB you choose.

          Personally, I have been using FBBv7.00e for years. It is very stable
          with BPQ32. Again, certain files will need to be replaced, but once
          configured and running, you really don't have to do much with it.

          Yes, you can run Telpac (or their BetaRMS telpac replacement) with
          BPQ32. You can configure things to run with AGW but AGW isn't
          required.

          I am sure once you are up and running and wish to solicit internet
          forwarding, I don't think the moderators will scold you if you do so
          on this group. There are quite a few BPQ32/BBS Syops that subscribe
          to this group and would be glad to forward with you.

          If I can be of any help to you Jeff, you can email me direct or
          continue to post your questions here. That is what the group is for,
          to help out where help is needed.

              Latest version of WinFBB (which looks to be 7.00i) good to use, or is
              one of the prior versions better? Sometimes the latest and greatest
              isn't always the greatest ;-)

              I gather the Win32 WinFBB is pretty much Alpha software and the Win16
              stuff is much more stable?

              Can I, or better stated, has anyone ran WinFBB and BPQ32 alongside
              WinLink on the same TNC/Radio? AGW the route to go for this if it's
              possible? Would kind of like to offer a WinLink telpac station for
              the area, but maximize existing equipment if possible.

              I'd probably have to go with a VHF/UHF local port and forward via the
              internet. Pros and cons of this? How would I go about, or who do I
              contact, for forwarding arrangements and so forth?

              Thanks in advance for your patience with my questions!

                K4GBB needs to check his V Statement in your forwarding block, he is probably missing the

                Well. It's up and running just fine. I have one forward protocol error with one

                BBS and the rest work fine. I would say it's not me. BPQ 410D is sweet

                and working with FBB. The telnet port is working just fine.

                 

                This is also running on a machine with my CC Cluster AND AR Cluster

                DX nodes! They all are playing nicely together.

                 

                The only thing left is the RF ports. Mike! Got an example KISS port

                for 410D?? It's been years since I ran a kiss port as I had the DRSI all

                the time.

                After running WinFbb 7.01-35 also know as 7.01A for a couple of years I finally gave up and switched

                To WFBB 7.00E 32 Bit with BPQ32U latest Version 410D, to many BUGS in 7.01A.

                 I also use Telpac for Winlink connections, AGWPE isn’t needed as the BPQ32U has an AGWtoBPQ look a like

                 for programs needing AGWPE but if you want, AGWPE can be used with BPQ32U, for me AGWPE is just one

                less program I don’t need running.

                 

                One problem with all of the 16 Bit WFBB 7.00E, G and I is the processor usage is 100% where as the

                32 Bit 7.00E runs nicely at 6%, if you are running W2K or XP a couple of changes need to be made

                to make the Maintenance (Housekeeping) program to work.

                 

                As to a list of active BBS’S yes you are right it is hard to find, I will be more then happy to help you out

                With all needed Programs and Files for BPQ and WFBB.

                 

                BTW most Winlink Uses/Nodes are switching from TELPAC to ether Packlink or RMS BETA.

                Hey guys/gals,

                I'm seriously contemplating a new PBBS for my area here in Northern
                Kentucky and have a few questions maybe this group can help answer for me.

                Is there a good list of current PBBS's out there for the USA? I've
                looked around some on the net, but I haven't really found a one-stop
                listing. I find some single state lists and most of them are really
                old lists.

                I've lightly perused over some of the documents out there, BTW the
                best are found here on this group. I gather there are some bugs in
                FBB when used with BPQ32? Just curious what these are in brief?

                Anyone on the list willing to give me some do's, dont's, and things to
                watch out for with BPQ32 and WinFBB?

                          To shut down bpq, I exit fbb then right click on the bpq icon, select
                          bpq.exe, click on
                          the red X.

                            Thanks all. Now to get the other port of it to work at the same time.

                            To shut down bpq, I exit fbb then right click on the bpq icon, select
                            bpq.exe, click on
                            the red X.

                              If you need to vary the Pacl per port this can be done in the BPQCFG.TXT just remember to run

                              The BPQCFG.EXE without BPQ/FBB running to compile the BPQCFG.TXT to the BIN.

                              To shut down bpq, I exit fbb then right click on the bpq icon, select
                              bpq.exe, click on
                              the red X.

                              That s all I ever did also. I (BPQ) port in FBB and then all the ports in BPQ to handle the radios. Connect to the BPQ node, then tell it what port to connect

                                I will send you my port.sys I have only 1 BPQ Port allocated in WFBB to handle all the BPQ Ports

                                If you need to vary the Pacl per port this can be done in the BPQCFG.TXT just remember to run

                                The BPQCFG.EXE without BPQ/FBB running to compile the BPQCFG.TXT to the BIN.

                                To shut down bpq, I exit fbb then right click on the bpq icon, select
                                bpq.exe, click on
                                the red X.

                                  OK, I added the new KISS port to bpqcfg.txt. re-ran bpqconfig. It still shows

                                  the old port. Have I been at this too long today? What an I missing?

                                  K4GBB needs to check his V Statement in your forwarding block, he is probably missing the

                                  Period Example:   V .N9PMO$WPassWord$ W

                                   

                                  The Period stops the echo and starts the Handshaking upon connection.

                                   

                                  I will send you the Kiss stuff to your E-Mail Address.

                                  Well. It's up and running just fine. I have one forward protocol error with one

                                  BBS and the rest work fine. I would say it's not me. BPQ 410D is sweet

                                  and working with FBB. The telnet port is working just fine.

                                   

                                  This is also running on a machine with my CC Cluster AND AR Cluster

                                  DX nodes! They all are playing nicely together.

                                   

                                  The only thing left is the RF ports. Mike! Got an example KISS port

                                  for 410D?? It's been years since I ran a kiss port as I had the DRSI all

                                  the time.

                                  After running WinFbb 7.01-35 also know as 7.01A for a couple of years I finally gave up and switched

                                  To WFBB 7.00E 32 Bit with BPQ32U latest Version 410D, to many BUGS in 7.01A.

                                   I also use Telpac for Winlink connections, AGWPE isn’t needed as the BPQ32U has an AGWtoBPQ look a like

                                   for programs needing AGWPE but if you want, AGWPE can be used with BPQ32U, for me AGWPE is just one

                                  less program I don’t need running.

                                   

                                  One problem with all of the 16 Bit WFBB 7.00E, G and I is the processor usage is 100% where as the

                                  32 Bit 7.00E runs nicely at 6%, if you are running W2K or XP a couple of changes need to be made

                                  to make the Maintenance (Housekeeping) program to work.

                                   

                                  As to a list of active BBS’S yes you are right it is hard to find, I will be more then happy to help you out

                                  With all needed Programs and Files for BPQ and WFBB.

                                   

                                  BTW most Winlink Uses/Nodes are switching from TELPAC to ether Packlink or RMS BETA.

                                  Hey guys/gals,

                                  I'm seriously contemplating a new PBBS for my area here in Northern
                                  Kentucky and have a few questions maybe this group can help answer for me.

                                  Is there a good list of current PBBS's out there for the USA? I've
                                  looked around some on the net, but I haven't really found a one-stop
                                  listing. I find some single state lists and most of them are really
                                  old lists.

                                  I've lightly perused over some of the documents out there, BTW the
                                  best are found here on this group. I gather there are some bugs in
                                  FBB when used with BPQ32? Just curious what these are in brief?

                                  Anyone on the list willing to give me some do's, dont's, and things to
                                  watch out for with BPQ32 and WinFBB?

                                  Latest version of WinFBB (which looks to be 7.00i) good to use, or is
                                  one of the prior versions better? Sometimes the latest and greatest
                                  isn't always the greatest ;-)

                                  I gather the Win32 WinFBB is pretty much Alpha software and the Win16
                                  stuff is much more stable?

                                  Can I, or better stated, has anyone ran WinFBB and BPQ32 alongside
                                  WinLink on the same TNC/Radio? AGW the route to go for this if it's
                                  possible? Would kind of like to offer a WinLink telpac station for
                                  the area, but maximize existing equipment if possible.

                                  I'd probably have to go with a VHF/UHF local port and forward via the
                                  internet. Pros and cons of this? How would I go about, or who do I
                                  contact, for forwarding arrangements and so forth?

                                  Thanks in advance for your patience with my questions!

                                    I can't seem to use the "other" radio port in my 1278. I added a second
                                    port in bpqcfg.txt file changed the "channel" from A like port one to "B"
                                    to tell it to use the second radio port of the 1278. It doesn't. It still uses
                                    the same radio port. The 300 HF baud port.
                                     
                                    This is all I had to do with the DRSI cards was change the channel. I
                                    guess it doesn't work for a 1278?

                                    I will send you my port.sys I have only 1 BPQ Port allocated in WFBB to handle all the BPQ Ports

                                    If you need to vary the Pacl per port this can be done in the BPQCFG.TXT just remember to run

                                    The BPQCFG.EXE without BPQ/FBB running to compile the BPQCFG.TXT to the BIN.

                                    Dave, I have been watching your messages about using two ports with BPQ. I run an old KAM with BPQ and both ports work just as they are suppose to. If you

                                      I have been watching your messages about using two ports with BPQ. I
                                      run an old KAM with BPQ and both ports work just as they are suppose
                                      to. If you would send your bpqcfg.txt file to kb8dm@... I will
                                      take a look at it and compare it to my configuration file.

                                      Again as always your must complile the txt file into bin.

                                      Karl

                                        Been running BPQ for 20 years Karl. I understand the compile thing.
                                        I will send it though. Maybe I'm missing something.
                                         
                                        It come up and compiles with two ports. Shows two ports. I can
                                        connect to it thru the bbs or BPQ terminal. Pick either port 1 or
                                        2, it doesn't matter. It still uses the same port on the TNC.
                                         
                                         
                                         
                                        Thanks for the help.

                                        Dave,

                                        I have been watching your messages about using two ports with BPQ. I
                                        run an old KAM with BPQ and both ports work just as they are suppose
                                        to. If you would send your bpqcfg.txt file to kb8dm@kb8dm. com I will
                                        take a look at it and compare it to my configuration file.

                                        Again as always your must complile the txt file into bin.

                                        Karl

                                          2, it doesn't matter. It still uses the same port on the TNC.

                                          Dave,

                                          I have been watching your messages about using two ports with BPQ. I
                                          run an old KAM with BPQ and both ports work just as they are suppose
                                          to. If you would send your bpqcfg.txt file to kb8dm@kb8dm. com I will
                                          take a look at it and compare it to my configuration file.

                                          Again as always your must complile the txt file into bin.

                                          Karl

                                            I may be wrong, but I think that the 1278 is a single port TNC with the the ability to select an HF or VHF modem (like the TNC220), not a dual port TNC with separate HF and VHF channels, like the KAM.

                                            Been running BPQ for 20 years Karl. I understand the compile thing.
                                            I will send it though. Maybe I'm missing something.
                                             
                                            It come up and compiles with two ports. Shows two ports. I can
                                            connect to it thru the bbs or BPQ terminal. Pick either port 1 or
                                            2, it doesn't matter. It still uses the same port on the TNC.

                                            Dave,

                                            I have been watching your messages about using two ports with BPQ. I
                                            run an old KAM with BPQ and both ports work just as they are suppose
                                            to. If you would send your bpqcfg.txt file to kb8dm@kb8dm. com I will
                                            take a look at it and compare it to my configuration file.

                                            Again as always your must complile the txt file into bin.

                                            Karl

                                              Dave,

                                              I have been watching your messages about using two ports with BPQ. I
                                              run an old KAM with BPQ and both ports work just as they are suppose
                                              to. If you would send your bpqcfg.txt file to kb8dm@kb8dm. com I will
                                              take a look at it and compare it to my configuration file.

                                              Again as always your must complile the txt file into bin.

                                              Karl
