Jnos start with screen

Jimmy K3CHB, Was looking at how he could get a restart option in Jnos in combination with “screen”.

Below how he did it.

Startnos

Nos.loop

 

Jnos snmpd

Autoexec.nos

sudo apt-get install mrtg
mkdir /var/www/html/mrtg/jnos
cd /var/www/html/mrtg/jnos
sudo nano mrtg.cfg

Mrtg.cfg

sudo nano /etc/cron.d/mrtg

Direwolf 1.6 D (Mar 1 2020) FX.25

I did some testing with a friend of mine PD2NLX. We have tested the (new) FX.25 protocol (32 and 16 Bytes) This is AX25 with forward error correction. Now the distance between us is quite short, about 5 kilometers. We have discovered that the 16 bytes check at a short distance works better.

First I have installed the “dev” release of Direwolf.

My direwolf.start file look like this

I have add the start option “-d x” Let’s take a look at what that looks like.

It has, of course, been developed to work over large distances and thus achieve a reasonably reliable connection. But it works surprisingly well.

Guide…BPQ User and Sysop Commands

Bill PY2BIL has wrote a great guide with Sysop and User commands.

PY2BIL wrote,

Since I started with my BPQ BBS I was looking for an easier way to access the documentation and find what I needed at the moment, so as many do, I wrote down what I used the most along the way. Recently I decided to take the plunge and write the ‘Official BPQ Cheat Sheet’ (hihi) based on the official documentation that would make my life easier. Some of the commands I found in the documentation are flagged as obsolete or no other reference was found and I suspect that many changes that John did are still not formally documented and may be laying around in this forum.

The official website,

Or download it from this link.

Thanks Bill great document.

Jnos NNTP(s) Server

Jean VE2PKT helpt me to get things going. Thank you Jean. I really appreciate it.

I first have to compile a new Jnos version with the NNTP(s) enabled, edit your config.h and define NNTPS.
(#define NNTPS   /* Netnews client and server */)
I had problems if I wanted to connect the NNTP server. Jnos crached right away. After a distro update of my linux version from “Stretch” to “Buster” all went fine.

Autoexec.nos

Fist create newsgroups on the Jnos prompt

nntp create <news.group.name> [y|n]

Updates the /spool/news/active file, which must have an entry for each news group you wish to receive.  Choose y to permit posting to this group, or n to deny posting.  y is assumed if nothing is specified.  The /spool/news/pointer file is also updated with the path to the directory which will contain the articles. Articles will be stored as separate files, named by an integer corresponding to their arrival order.

The NNTPS software includes a mail-to-news feature, such that email with a To: address that begins with “!” is passed to the NNTPS module.  The remainder of the To: address is interpreted as a newsgroup name, with the name truncated at the first occurrence of one of “%@.,/”, and with “!” translated to “.” and “+” to “,”. An alias is usually used to provide this special name. For example, to route all NLD bulletins to both the NLD area, and the NG.NLD newsgroup, use the alias:

The NNTPS software includes a news-to-mail feature, such that news articles can be emailed to local or remote destinations after they are processed by nntp. This would allow, for example, emailing to a public area, so that BBS users too could read news articles. JNOS must be compiled with NNTPS and NEWS_TO_MAIL #define’d and a file /spool/news/gateway must exist to define the mapping from a newsgroup to an SMTP To: address. Each non-comment line in the gateway file must begin with a newsgroup name (starnames OK), followed by spaces or tabs, followed by the email To: address.

Expire time of bulletins or newsgroup messages.

I’m using Thunderbird to read and post messages as bulletin and newsgroup mail.

mail.log

That’s look pretty cool, isn’t it?

 

Jnos colors are back

For the Raspberry Pi users among us, Maiko has found a solution for the Colors in Jnos and the NNTP server and probably even more stability issues.
For a long time we had to miss the colors, but I immediately imagine myself back in the 90s.

The Solution…..

JNOS is doing strange things on PI platforms. Because gcc in the ARM processors are forcing CHAR variables to be UNSIGNED, not SIGNED!

Thank you Maiko….

Jnos White Page (WP) Support

Jnos White Page processing.

Create a directory /jnos/spool/wp

This directory consists the following files.
1. wpages                                                                   # links a user call to a bbs call.
2. wpagebbs                                                               # contains the full hierarchical address of a bbs call.
3. wpages.new, wpagebbs.new, wpages.tmp            # new entries waiting to be merged into the above (MAIN) files during processing.
4. update.wp                                                              # tracks updates to our database – used for sending white page updates to other systems.

Autoexec.nos

Rewrite

How SP command interacts with WP database.

By default, there is no WP prompt. You have to create a preference before any WP interaction occurs when using the ‘SP’ command to send a message.
Use ‘XW’ (without arguments) to display current setting, for example :

WP options for ‘SP’ – 1=disable, 2=show/prompt, 3=show/noprompt, 4=force it
option 2 is currently set

To set your option, simply do something like ‘xw 2’, that’s all there is to it.

If you enter the command ‘wp pd9q’ and you might get this below :

wp routing ‘[email protected]#ZL.NLD.EU

If I enter ‘sp pd9q’ on my system, I might be prompted like below :

wp routing ‘[email protected]#ZL.NLD.EU’ – use ? (Y/n)
