RE: [BPQ32] RE: LinBPQ BBS forwarding ..
I’ve always had it like that John (V bbscallsign$Wpassword$WBBS$W) – I have no issues with that … I can also access the LinBPQ BBS by typing just ‘BBS’ from the command prompt …
Looking at Peter’s example, it suggests (to me) that FBB BBS is forwarding to ‘WA1BBS’ and the APPLICATION line has ‘WA1BBS’ in the field that I thought was the ‘alias’ field ???
Correct me if I’m wrong : The application line is to display ‘BBS’ with the help command and allow the command ‘BBS’ to be used ?? .. That means that ONLY ONE application like this is needed, not an application for each BBS being forwarded to ?? .. In other words, applications are not used to forward to BBS’s …
Peter, to make me happy, can you try and do a FBB BBS forward to my LinBPQ BBS please ?? ( www.ham-radio.co.za port 6302) … That way, if it works I know that my other FBB neighbours can also change over to my LinBPQ BBS … I think I’ll have to set you up as a telnet ‘user’ in my telnet port section .. email me with a password Peter …

This is what I’ve always had in my BPQ config file as I understand it – the ‘MEEBPQ’ being the ‘alias of ZS0MEE BBS …
“APPLICATION 3,BBS,,ZS0MEE,MEEBPQ,255” …
If I have this wrong, then that means I should have the ‘MEEBPQ’ field not as an alias but as the callsign of the BBS I am trying to forward to ??? .. Which also means I can have only, what, 8 or 16 BBS’s to forward to ( amongst ‘other’ applications) ??
My Telnet port etc is fine and works in every other respect …

Could you include your APPLICATION line for LinBPQ - that could be the missing link!
Sorry, I should have thought of that, Hi.

Peter, go to http://guardian.no-ip.org:88/bpqmap/ChatNetwork.htm ... Notice where you situated ???? … On the equator !!!!!!!
Work out your co-ordinates in decimal format and then in your BPQ web page in Chat configuration, in “Map Position”, enter your co-ords there .. Mine are “-26.25536 27.92135” … Once you click on “Update Maps”, look at the above URL again and if you got it right, you should be down on that ‘little’ island down deep south *Grin …
