File Request is a BBS Door that will allow your users to post a filename or
description of the type of file they are looking for. This has proved to
be a great way to get users to upload files that people have been looking for.
File Request will run on most any BBS package and is RIPGraphics, DesqView,
OS/2 and Windows aware. I have had the best useage by running this door from
my file menu. Check your BBS docs for information on running a door from your
file menu. The file request list created by this door is a plain text file
that can be edited with any text editor.
Features include: Shell to Dos, Force the user back to BBS, Full Screen
Chat and adjusting the users time left in the door!
Make a directory and unzip all the files into the newly formed directory.
Edit the SAMPLE.CFG file to match your system. The configuration file
can be any name you choose, but the configuration file must be in the same
directory the door is in. You will also need to edit the SAMPLE.BAT file
and name it anything you would like. This BAT file should be called by
BBS software to run the door, and then return control back to your BBS
software. Refer to your BBS Docs if you are unsure of how to do this!
The config file is an ASCII text file with the following format:
LINE 1: Door data file type
LINE 2: Path to the door data file(s)
Line 3: BBS name
Line 4: Sysop's name
LINE 5: Locked baud rate
LINE 1: PCB for PCBoard
GAP for GAP (DOOR.SYS)
TRIBBS for TRIBBS (TRIBBS.SYS)
SF for Spitfire (SFDOORS.DAT)
RBBS for RBBS (DORINFO#.DEF)
WC for WildCat (CALLINFO.BBS)
WWIV for WWIV
LINE 5: If you do not lock your modem,
you must put a 0 on this line.
Otherwise, put the locked baud rate!
Sample config file:
The R/C Connection BBS
You call the door with the following command:
door config nonstandardirq
Door is the doors EXE file and config is the doors CFG file. The
nonstardardirq can be used if you are using a non standard IRQ for
the serial port. You can also run the door without logging onto the
BBS by specifying LOCAL after the doors CFG filename.
door config local
Sample BAT file to call the door:
See the REGISTER.FRM file included with this archive.
Future upgrades to this program will work with your registration key.
Future upgrades will be available on my BBS as well as many others!
