AA4RE BBS and the G8BPQ Switch.


From version 3.22, the switch attempts to support the AA4RE BBS. This has
been done by extending the PK232 host mode support, originally written to
support the G8UFQ BBS. The system allows the first Virtual TNC port to
support up to 8 users. The configuration I used is detailed below:

In BPQCFG.TXT:

HOSTMODE=2; Note HOSTMODE replaces UFQBBS - for UFQ, set HOSTMODE=1

In PARAM.BB:

port
port_type = PK-232
com = 2; use the first number in TNCPORTLIST
max_pac = 120
speed = 4800; not actually used
max_connect = 8
max_channel = 9
max_pending = 3; seems ok, but keep an eye on minimum free buffer
monitor = yes
time_out = 180
fwd_min = 15
bbs_only = N
remote_sysop = Y
upload_download = Y
broadcast = y; sends mail beacon on all radio ports
port_name = 144.650/432.675 NODE
broadcast_path = MAIL; is ignored - set in config.txt file
monitor_color = 121
no_out_fwd = N
endport


In ROUTE.BB

G8BPQ LEAVE
@BLANK LEAVE
* GB7DAD


In PATH.BB

PATH GB7DAD A GB7DAD FORCE
T 0000 2300
C SWITCH; note initial C SWITCH
SC LRG7
R* to *
SC GB7DAD
R* to *


I haven't been able to test it very throughly - please let me know how you
get on with it.


Note that the remaining Virtual TNCs continue to run as normal. If you
are running under Desqview, you can still run PAC2 (or even MBL/RLI!) in
other windows. However, AA4RE needs a LOT of store - you need to use
all the tricks described in the DV manual to get a big enough window to
run it effectively.

John Wiseman, G8BPQ.
