RE: [BPQ32] RE: LinBPQ BBS forwarding ..
John, I know we have been down this road a few times before - I only use the example for testing, nothing else …
You mention “BPQTermTCP”, where can I get a copy so I can try it out (I assume on a Windows machine) …
That’s why I set up Peter (LinBPQ) as a BBS and asked him to try and connect using his FBB BBS – I don’t have any luck from my local end … But he says he has hassles connecting, but then it may have been that I hadn’t set a password yet – I have now – just waiting for him to get up and read this lot - *Smile ..
You say you used BPQTermTCP and connected to my telnet session BBS on 6302 ??? … Interesting …

As I've said before, you cant connect to a port configured using FBBPORT using a normal telnet client. It for for connects from FBB or BPQTermTCP only. I can connect to you using BPQTermTCP. With a normal telnet client you can get the prompts by hitting enter a few times, but you won't be able to connect.
Peter, it is port 6302 …. Try a “telnet www.ham-radio.co.za 6302” and see what I mean when I say you have to press <enter> two or three times to get each of the LinBPQ BBS prompts up … I have in the meantime entered your password as you wanted …
Let me know what you find …

I’ve always had it like that Jo hn (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 & #8230;

I do not seem able to telnet to your LinBPQ BBS.
# BBS : ZS0MEE.SRJ.GAU.ZAF.AF
IF H 00-23
L B 230
L O 3
C C ZS0MEE www.ham-radio.co.za 6302
The password is set as per my email to you earlier.
I did also try port 8011 but that never worked either.

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 …
