• binkit & binkd on the same machine

    From Dumas Walker@VERT/CAPCITY2 to Al on Tue Jul 24 19:21:33 2018
    Al,
    I was asking a couple of weeks back about the binkd outboxes. I got the impression that you might be running both binkd and binkit on the same box in order to use the binkd outbox feature to move files.

    Since binkit reads the sbbs services.ini file to determine which port to listen to, and binkd uses /etc/services, are you able to set those up on two separate ports on the same machine without any conflicts?

    Sorry if I misunderstood and you are not using both. Thanks!

    I was asking a couple of weeks back about the binkd outboxes. I got the impression that you might be running both binkd and binkit on the same box in order to use the binkd outbox feature to move files.

    No, I just run binkit. I have thought of that and I think that is doable but the very few times I could use an outbox I just write the path and filename to the flofile (.flo/.clo/.hlo/.dlo) in the outbound. In my case to send a file to 1:153/6809 I would enter this in 00991a99.clo in my outbound..

    /sbbs/data/dirs/fido/nasa/AP180724.ZIP

    Or to delete the file once it is sent..

    ^/sbbs/xtrn/gdyn/out/ibbs0001.zip

    So far that has been enough for me but I am still hoping we will get filebox support in binkit at some point.

    You can get the base name of a flo file from the linked nodes list in echocfg between the node number and name in brackets. It needs to go in the correct outbound directory for the zone the node is in.

    Ah, ok, I misunderstood. You know, I was thinking that would be manual
    work but I bet I could write a script to check for the presence of a file
    and, if found, create/append the flofile with the info I want appended.

    Thanks, I had seen that before. Is that the name of the flo file, or the
    name of the "packet" files (i.e. name.TH0, name.FR0, etc.)? I was not sure.

    That part is a bit tricky in a script. You'll want to be sure to append to an existing flofile and not overwrite it.. :)

    It is the base name of the flo file. The mail bundles get different names, I'm not sure how.

    I am unsure if from my eundora (private Account) to sneaky@1stchoicecore.co.nz is outbound or inbound I would od thought it would be inboundbut I could be wrong. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- (support)

    Easy using the >> output redirection in shells like BASH. That creates the file if it doesn't exist, and appends otherwise. I think it works in DOS/Windows too.

    Yes, DOS/Windows uses that too. You can also do 2>&1 to also redirect standard error to the file as well (otherwise, you'll have standard output going to the file and error messages going to the screen). Specifically, 2>&1 redirects standard error to the same place where you're redirecting standard output.

    Sneaky, 1stchoicecore.co.nz is your BBS right? I connected to it via HTTP(web). Change your configuration on in the mail reflector to send mail to just 1stchoicecore.co.nz instead of mail.1stchoicecore.co.nz. That should fix it.

    If you really want mail.1stchoicecore.co.cz then you will need a DNS A record created in your DNS. Your Domain Name Registrar wouldprovide the DNS. It would just be easier to send mail to your BBS domain name and not jave to screw with an MX record (something I learned today).,

    That totally depends on who is hatching the file. I use htick to hatch files and in my config I use the option '-replace' which, when your processor process the tic, it will delete the old file and replace it with the new one.

    I think it would be a good thing. I have tried asking Deuce in IRC but his shedule and mine seem to be at odds and I haven't managed to be there when he is.

    If you have any spare time you could try to get a hold of Duece (probably
    IRC would be best) and ask him if it could be added to Binkit. I'm sure he would agree too but would need the time to do it. That's not always easy to come by.

    No the support didn't understand my problem, but I got help from the bbs community
    (just cannot thing of the persons name at present) but in Reflector option I have

    bash:
    printf "%xhex\n" 34
    22hex

    printf "%ddec\n" 0x22
    34dec


    4DOS/4OS2:
    rem : convert the zone (%zn) in decimal to hex
    rem : pad with leading zeros for three places
    rem : use lower case output
    set pzone=%@lower[%@format[03,%@convert[10,16,%zn]]]

    rem : convert the net (%nt) in decimal to hex
    rem : convert the node (%nd) in decimal to hex
    rem : pad both with leading zeros for four places
    rem : use lower case output
    rem : glue net/node together as one output xxxxyyyy form
    set paddr=%@lower[%@format[04,%@convert[10,16,%nt]]%@format[04,%@convert[10,16,%nd]]]

    rem : convert the point (%pt) in decimal to hex
    rem : pad with leading zeros for eight places
    rem : use lower case output
    set ppoint=%@lower[%@format[08,%@convert[10,16,%pt]]]


    the above 4DOS/4OS2 code is for the BSO directory stuff... %@convert[10,16,X] does the heavy lifting to convert X from decimal (10) to hex (16)... AFAIK, you
    can convert from any numbering format to any other... i have not actually tested something like base36 to base10, though... if i have, that brain cell is
    asleep at the moment... at least it isn't kicking my brain right now :lol:


    the real tricky part is the checking for and creating if needed of the BSO directories that's the tough part... especially if you're doing 4D or 5D which makes a big difference... then destination points' directories have to be managed under their boss' out.zzz/xxxxyyyy directory as pppppppp.pnt... it can be real fun to code... i've only done 5D style because nothing i have requires 4D where i have this code in place...

    Should be fairly straightforward in Linux, though I haven't tried. No idea in $DOS/4OS2, because I haven't used those for 15+ year. I used to love 4DOS back in the day. I do all sorts of clever path manipulation in BASH. :)

    didn't i send you my poll or freq script some time back? the code is in there because the same determinations need to be made as to where to create the poll ?LO file and what its name is as well as creating the freq data file, too... they're real close in form...

    No need. That wheel has already been invented by Markus Reschke, as a part of his MFreq package for binkD. There's also a matching 'sendfile' script.

    Just FREQ "MFREQ" from my main system (#384). They may need fine-tuning for your system, too.

    Cheers,
    Paul.

    Umm, there is a bit of a Catch-22 there! :)

    Yeah, I know I can craft one manually, and I have done that before, but it's annoyingly fiddly and I have to have my head in the right place (and with less than 6 hours sleep last night, that's not likely today). :/

    Oops. I always assume people have these functions in their mailer(s). (I can do FREQs and file sending with a few mouse clicks in my Radius doover.) AAMOF I FREQ-ed a possible new release of MFREQ from Markus' joint, which was forwarded to yours inside of a minute.

    Anyhow... check your insecure inbound. Enjoy. 8-)

    I was asking about binkd, and yes it _can_ do FREQs, but it has to be setup totally by hand or external scripting. :)

    If I could do that, I wouldn't be looking for a simple way to do it! :D

    Thanks, will check it out. :)

    Ahmm... I was the victim of a relativistic gravity well this AM. After checking the logs, I found it took me 2 minutes four seconds. At the time it went whee!-whoosh! and was done. :)

    If I could do that, I wouldn't be looking for a simple way to do it! :D

    The only downside with Radius is that to do an automated FREQ via its cron would be possible but a mind-bending exercise. OTOH, using Markus' tool for such a job on my Linux box via binkD would be a *snap* (and which is essentially extra bling in his package). That's a priority #99 job for my todo
    list now. ;)

    You need to slow down, those relativistic velocities really screw up your sense of time. :D

    Ahh OK, cool. Well, I had a look at the package, looks interesting. Will revisit when my head's in the right place. :)
