    How do I force binkd to poll when acting as a server only

    I touch the flow file from cron when I want to poll nodes on a schedule.

    You can also run ./binkd -Pp 1:234/567 binkd.conf. That will run binkd and create a flow file for the poll, poll that node and perhaps other nodes that have mail waiting and then quit.

    You can also use this to reduce crontab entries. This is intended to create a poll for several addresses at once.

    Have nice nights.

    Thanks Stas

    Unfortunately, I forgot to put an example config. See my previous post.

    Hi, Andrew!

    Unfortunately, I forgot to put an example config. See my previous
    post.

    Once I corrected the typo in your example, it works fine for FidoNet.

    Thanks. I can't find such a typo myself. Fixed.

    With a little setup of extra .conf files, it should work fine for othernets as well.

    Thanks for making this available; it'll come in handy.

    There are a few other useful things in there. ;)

    For example:

    [fido@brorabbit fileecho]$ bls.pl
    Creates stat files from the binkd.log file.
    Usage: bls.pl [options] binkd_config_file_name
    ~~~~~~
    Binkd config MUST be defined!
    Options:
    --out-dir[|-o] - directory name where create stat files. Optional.
    Default is current dir.
    --day[|-d] - date to create stat for. Format dd.mm, dd-mm or dd/mm.
    Default is from the start of log file till the end.
    --update[|-u] - Automatic update. Optional. By default, it
    checks for a new version and downloads the
    update to a new file.

    maintmsg.pl
    Perl script for OPUS MSG base service.
    This program is designed to service the OPUS MSG base. Sorting by date, renumbering, linking, deleting or moving old messages. Lastreads of all users will be preserved.

    uudecode.pl
    It is for simple decoding of any UU and BASE64 encoded files.
    The source file can be not only plain text, but also contain binary data. For example, it could be a message base file. All files encoded in it will be found and decoded. It is possible to set the name of the log file and then a report on decoded files will be generated. Since the program is focused on using primarily for Fido, that is, the ability to set the name of the echo conference. It will be reflected in the log file and the decoded files will be placed in a separate directory with this name. In addition, this program can independently check and download its own updates, but not apply them, leaving the decision to update to the system operator.

    pingpong.pm
    This program is Ping robot designed accordingly FTS-5001.006 This is an extended implementation that allows the Ping response to be redirected through any password protcted link.

    Have nice nights.
    Stas Mishchenkov.
