    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? _____ From:

      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.

       

      Thanks,

      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!

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

                Wallah!!! 20 Meter port up running a 1278B in KISS and also using a USB to serial adapter! I have got to re-wire the cable to the Yaesu FT-840 I used though.

                  Wallah!!! 20 Meter port up running a 1278B in KISS and also using
                  a USB to serial adapter! I have got to re-wire the cable to the
                  Yaesu FT-840 I used though. Right now I have it on my FT-2000!
                   
                  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.

                    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.

                    Wallah!!! 20 Meter port up running a 1278B in KISS and also using

                    a USB to serial adapter! I have got to re-wire the cable to the

                    Yaesu FT-840 I used though. Right now I have it on my FT-2000!

                     

                    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.

                    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.

                      Wallah!!! 20 Meter port up running a 1278B in KISS and also using

                      a USB to serial adapter! I have got to re-wire the cable to the

                      Yaesu FT-840 I used though. Right now I have it on my FT-2000!

                       

                      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.

                        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!

                          OK, here is my only snag. Which isn't that big a deal it's just going to
                          make me use two TNC's when I was hoping to do it with one.
                           
                          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.

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

                            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@... 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.

                              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.
                                 
                                 
                                 
                                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

                                  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.
                                   
                                   
                                   
                                  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

                                    modems, did the trick.

                                    DOS FBB-BPQ and 16 bit FBB-BPQ, I'm finally in the 21st century.
                                     
                                    I'm sure going to miss those DRSI cards and external HF modems

                                    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
