Fbb problem showing .HLP and .ENT file

Donnie WD1F has some trouble to get the english.hlp and the english.ent files to show up in fbb. He found the solution.

All the files are there with the right permissions.

I found my problem and it wasn’t easy. In case others have this issue…
The issue was: Pressing H would not give me the help file. After getting it working I see I was missing other things as well like lots of the welcome text.

duckduckgo.com search showed EMSGSIZE (Message too long) had to do with packet sizes allowed. Made me think it may relate to max packet length setting in axports
The fix was:

in /etc/ax25/axports…
name Call speed paclen window desctiption
1 WD1F-1 9600 128 2 144.01 MHz (1200 bps)

I had to set paclen to 255 like this:
1 WD1F-1 9600 255 2 144.01 MHz (1200 bps)

Linfbb maintenance scripts modified.

Brain n1uro has write a script to getting reports sent to you nightly from your maintenance.

/usr/lib/fbb/script/maintenance/20_epurmess

/usr/lib/fbb/script/maintenance/20_epurwp

I have some trouble to get things going so i change some line in the scipt.

I have change the line

to

fbbgetconf needs a option.

Output off the script.

 

Forward from linbpq through uronode to fbb.

There were some problems getting the forward from linbpq through a uronode to a linfbb bbs. I spent a while testing to see if we could get things going. It actually works pretty well.

I have add the following connection script to linbpq

ATT 3 stands for attach port 3, and port 3 is in my system the telnet port.

Furthermore, in uronode.conf I have created an Alias with the name BBS. So if the command BBS is given in uronode, you will be connected with linfbb.

We can test whether the forward script does what it is supposed to do. Let’s start the forward in Linbpq.

Log file of Linbpq

Okay looks good.

Fbb start file

 

Linfbb port.sys

Voorbeeld van port.sys die ik gebruik voor pi8lap

 

monitor script F6fbb

Brain N1URO heeft een script geschreven om te kijken of fbb nog draait.
Ik heb dit scriptje op geslagen in de directory van fbb. /usr/local/etc/ax25/fbb

Heb het opgeslagen als “fbbcheck” nu is het mogelijk om het via een cronjob elk uur aan te roepen.

Edit het bestandje /etc/crontab en voeg het volgende toe.

Nu wordt na elke 15 minuten na het hele uur gekeken of fbb nog draait zo niet wordt het herstart.

Hier onder het “fbbcheck” script.

Tnx to Brain N1URO

Ik heb zelf een kleine toevoeging gedaan aan het script. Nu kan ik ook zien hoe lang fbb al draait en wanneer fbb gestart is. (gewoon leuk 🙂 )

Ziet er zo uit.

 

Examples forward JNOS/BPQ/LinFBB

Here below some examples how the configuration of the forward in different systems works.

Thanks in particular to Bob (VE3TOK) and Gus (I0OJJ) for example configs !
