    I am at 1:154/50 and when I post, nothing makes it past my Boss who is 1:322/756 and its drving me crazy. Carlos sent an email request to have this looked into about a week ago. I am getting messages in, but they are not making out past his Mystic Server. So I am coming here in hopes this make it out and someone has a fix or ideas for us?

    So they are arriving at your link but are not getting tossed there? If that is the case maybe your link can check the log and see what the error is?

    So I am coming here in hopes this make it out and someone has a fix or ideas for us?

    This one made it out fine. There must be an error of some kind, I suspect your links logs will provide the answer, or at least a clue.

    wait, what? that's not your 'boss'... boss nodes are for points... maybe they are your feed instead?

    Carlos sent an email request to have this looked into about a week
    ago.

    they should be able to look at their logs and see why... maybe a bad packet password or possibly in compatible archiver if you are sending bundles instead of raw PKTs...

    I am getting messages in,

    so it is working one way... if there's a password in place, one of you may have
    it and the other not...

    but they are not making out past his Mystic Server. So I am coming
    here in hopes this make it out

    well, you did post from someone else's system ;)

    and someone has a fix or ideas for us?

    use the logs, luke... use the logs...

    No confusion. I am using this BBS to post this message. Checksum's FidoNet is
    working. My Boss, 1:322/756 is who I poll from. My packets make it to his system and they go out to who ever polls him, but not any further up the line.
    My Fidonet address is 1:154/50 and Fidonet packets make it in, but my reply or
    popsts do not make it out.

    I do poll 4 networks from him. RetroNet, CommodoreNet, ArakNet and FidoNet. Fidonet is the only network that my posts/responces are not getting out.

    I am almost to the point where I may request a different boss to poll from. Although 1:322/756 Carlos is a good friend and he spent a lot of time helping me set up the 4 networks and offered to be my boss for all 4.

    Hi Gary!

    18 Apr 2019 11:21, from Gary Mcculloch -> All:

    My Boss, 1:322/756 is who I poll from. My packets make it to his
    system and they go out to who ever polls him, but not any further up
    the line. My Fidonet address is 1:154/50 and Fidonet packets make it

    ??? You only have a boss node if you are a point.
    You just said you are 1:154:50 ... then you do not have a boss node!

    If your packets get accepted by the node you route them to, then it is his issue.
    Let him check his logs.
    They should explain what is going on.

    I do poll 4 networks from him. RetroNet, CommodoreNet, ArakNet and FidoNet. Fidonet is the only network that my posts/responces are not getting out.

    If they are sent successfully to his system, then it is a config error on his side.
    The LOGs will tell the truth of what is happening.

    In which case it is a problem at your uplink. Let him deal with it.

    If no sollution is reached you may need another uplink or even migrate into another net.

    The thing is the problem should replicate for every other downlink of that uplink. Any other people noticing that "something"?

    Other people here will most likely tell you the same.

    working. My Boss, 1:322/756 is who I poll from. My packets make it to his
    system and they go out to who ever polls him, but not any further up the line. >My Fidonet address is 1:154/50 and Fidonet packets make it in, but my reply or

    I am almost to the point where I may request a different boss to poll from. Although 1:322/756 Carlos is a good friend and he spent a lot of time helping me set up the 4 networks and offered to be my boss for all 4.

    First suggestion is to make sure Fidonet is your main network, then make the _other_ networks you belong to an AKA. With some software that can make a difference, I've seen that many times.

    Also, I know from an email that your uplink has been pretty sick recently.. so that's probably why he hasn't been able to answer your emails, or netmails.

    Are you running Argus or BinkD for your outgoing mailer? If you are running either of those, you can send me your config file (send it to janis@filegate.net) and I'll take a look at it. It's probably something simple
    causing you problems :)

    Take care,

    I think you must've overlooked when he explained bundles are going out and are being processed by the uplink. No?

    Most recently he stated this:

    ^^^
    I do poll 4 networks from him. RetroNet, CommodoreNet, ArakNet and FidoNet. >Fidonet is the only network that my posts/responces are not getting out.

    That is why I mentioned making sure Fidonet is the main nodenumber and others are AKAs.

    you don't "request a new HUB"... you can pull echomail from any system that you
    have an agreement with, full stop...

    with that said, if you would like an echomail feed from here, you can download my service.app, fill it out and send it back to my 1:3634/12 via file attach netmail or to my wkitty42 account on gmail...

    I need to back up and find someone strong enough that I can

    Don't be satisfied with just one, go The Full Monty, connect to the FidoWeb.
    That is, if you are sure you can handle dups properly.

    Here are some nodes you can contact for starters:

    1:320/219
    1:154/10
    1:249/303
    2:203/0
    2:221/1
    2:280/464
    3:640/384

    The more you connect to the merrier.

    Some additional nodes have been added (the above list is rather old). Any sysop that think that your system handles *all* active FidoNet echoes on the FidoWeb, please contact me.

    I am at 1:154/50 and when I post, nothing makes it past my Boss who is 1:322/756 and its drving me crazy. Carlos sent an email request to have this looked into about a week ago. I am getting messages in, but they are not making out past his Mystic Server. So I am coming here in hopes this make it out and someone has a fix or ideas for us?


    It's fixed now! Glad to see ya!
