Re: Sinclair Retro BBS online!

Well it's still running stable now. It seems that the AntiHammer option of Net2BBS (the telnet server from NetFoss) did cause the crashes. Thankfully the DNS blocklist feature of Net2BBS blocks most of the rogue connections before they even get a chance to get the BBS login screen. So much for the '...

Re: Sinclair Retro BBS online!

Seems crash when I go out and try to log in again :-( Very nice BBS with the old messages, wow!!! I'm still tuning the configuration. It's mainly to avoid abuse (I get a lot of fake logins from botnets trying to login as root or admin). It looks like that some settings in the Telnet server cause it...

Re: Sinclair Retro BBS online!

Ok for Control-H works but...the Cursors Keys? ;) Without it people can't use the Files and Messages menu, are necessary. It looks like MysticBBS accepts only VT52 keypad escape codes (e.g. ESC D) and not ANSI codes (ESC [ D). Changing the mode to VT52 in QLterm won't help as this disables ANSI dis...

Re: Sinclair Retro BBS online!

It works also on my QPC2 on Mac via wine ;) One more question: how to fix the problems in QLTERM about Cursors keys? is really impossibile to use a BBS without the cursors keys for read mails and messages in the newsgroups. Can you fix it? Also the Backspace will be great to be fixed as feature ;) ...

I imagine to have the device tcp_ need some extension, which one?

It's a build-in device driver on QPC2 and Qemulator (and uqlx I presume). You don't have to load any extension.

Re: Sinclair Retro BBS online!

If you want I can test it for you ;) Send me the entire Superbasic program and I will try to use it. Thanks. P.S.: can you also help Giorgio to make it works on his Black Phoenix too? These lines are all you need. It simply declares a procedure 'Telnet' which you can call to connect and start up th...

Re: Sinclair Retro BBS online!

On Q emulator just tested seems it doesn't work. Can you do it a Q Emu version of this superbasic SW? Q Emu have TCP/IP too ;) I don't have a registered copy of Qemulator and the TCP/IP device doesn't work in unregistered mode :cry: I haven't tested it yet on uqlx; will try tomorrow... later, Jan.
