    DM,

    Does BinkIt support FTSC-5004. the DNS Distributed Nodelist?

    Yes, BinkIt supports DNS-lookups (that's FTS-5004).

    That's what the "DNSSuffix" setting is for, described here: http://wiki.synchro.net/config:sbbsecho.ini

    are you talking about where it will look up the node number in DNS and use the returned domain to contact the destination system?

    TBH, i forget if it does or not... it has been a while since i used BinkIT because i wanted to work with binkd and full 5D... i do know BinkIT will use the nodelist which is pretty easy to set up... doing that brings BinkIT into compatibility with most all FTNs that require the mailer to use the nodelist as the 'phone book' of systems that can be connected to... yeah, i know you most likely know that ;)

    Physically, probably, but I don't rail on people here because of it, short of
    a few close friends on here, no one really knows about my health and the
    impact it has made in my life.

    I doesn't make me annoying or easily annoyed (go ahead. echicken, let me have it, lol).

    I enjoy this hobby and what makes it fun and interesting is the stimulating conversations I have. I don't have time to temper tantrums or stupidity.

    Does BinkIt support FTSC-5004. the DNS Distributed Nodelist?
    Yes, BinkIt supports DNS-lookups (that's FTS-5004).

    So how is this supposed to be triggered? (Its not doing it for me).

    I have a configuration to 21:4/100:
    BinkpHost =
    BinkpPort = 24553
    BinkpPoll = false
    BinkpPlainAuthOnly = false
    BinkpAllowPlainAuth = false
    BinkpAllowPlainText = true
    BinkpTLS = true
    BinkpSourceAddress =

    (Interesting echocfg doesnt let me blank out the port if that is required.)

    When I poll this node - it seems to go to DNS to get the FQDN, but it doesnt appear to have fetched the SRV record (and is reusing the port in the config).

    I think it only does address look-up, not SRV record/port look-up via DNS.
