    Hello everybody!

    I use Irex to get the packets and the internal tosser of 15,4 to toss the mail.

    Not that difficult. Not sure about conversion tools. Qfront for PCB
    works as a front end mailer and tosser is designed to work with PCB
    message bases with out having to convert message base formats.

    I have and have netfoss working with my PCB bbs. Not sure about
    netfoss emulating a comport. I will check into it

    Netfoss is works with the doors over telnet. Netserial is the port
    redirector I belive. Been a while since I have looked into them. I still
    have the older multinode license of Com/IP before they went to one node
    licence of 99 dollars per node. I got it back when they offered a sysop special.

    I uploaded qf.zip to your bbs. It contains my bat files for qfront. Please take a look.

    Also I played with starter.bat and bot qfront to answer. As a dummy with no fossil loaded I tried a game and I got dumped. Now when I try it again I get PCBOARD unexpected message and no connection.

    Well I typed pcboard.exe and try again and get connected. But No connection when I try again. Just same PCBoard message unexpected message.

    Any thoughts?

    Are you getting this message from qfront or pcboad?

    I see this message when I use qfront to connect. It sees the connect and then tries to pass onto PCBoard. But I get the PCBOARD unexpected message. Remember I broke it when I once conneced to qfront and later after looking at messages. I tried a game with no fossil loaded and it dumped the conection.
    Now when I go look at the PCB filer folder I see bbsbatch.bat file. So somehow I broker the logice of the bat files.

    I delete the bbsbatch file and start qfront consoler and then try to connect and I get that PCBoard unexpected message.

    Just chasing my tail right now.

    I have Qfront connecting but when it tries to pass off the connection all I get is PCB console. It is like it doesn't know it is connected.

    Have you had a chance to review my bat files?
