• WC, IREX, BINKIT Error

    From LEE GREEN@1:102/401 to Rob Swindell on Thursday, September 12, 2019 22:03:32
    Rob:

    I run a WC BBS and IREX v2.29

    Ever since my Fidonet uplink upgraded to your new BINKIT I have been getting two different BinkP errors in IREX whenever I download or upload a message packet . Nothing is wrong with the packets but I never used to get these
    errors before he upgraded. I'm not sure if you are already aware of it.

    Hoping you can correct the closing of the connection so there are no more errors.

    Thanks, Lee

    If you could have the link send me the equivalent BinkIT log output from those sessions, that'd help to determine *why* it's dropping the connection.

    Or, it might be easier, if we just setup a link between us which we could use for testing IREX compatibility with BinkIT. Then I can monitor the logs and make experimental changes as needed. Maybe send me a netmail with the session password you want to use and you could pull echoes from me just as a test.

    I'm the link, I don't see a lot of logging in my fido.log file. Is there a
    log somewhere else for binkit sessions outside of the file specified in echocfg?

    For incoming BinkP sessions, the BinkIT activity is logged where your "services" activity is logged. In Windows, that'd be in the "Services" window of the Synchronet control planel. Like this (copy/pasted from sbbsctrl):
    9/14 02:45:44p 8116 BINKP connection accepted from: 67.180.133.226 port 62645

    On *nix, this is typically found in your syslog output when running sbbs daemonized.

    For outgoing BinkP sessions, the BinkIT activity is found where your "Events" are logged, on Windows, that'd be the "Events" window of the Synchronet Control
    Panel, like this:

    You can adjust the logging verbosity by changing the LogLevel value either in your sbbs.ini or using the controls in sbbsctrl.

    One thing I noticed that if Kurt POLLS ME and sends me a packet that the connection is closed without an error (see log below). Normally I POLL
    HIM every hour.

    I am thinking the remote is dropping the connection once the file
    transfers are completed. I have seen this before as well. As long as
    you trceive and send the number of files you are expecting to, I would
    not really worry about it.
