    From Gringo@1:103/705 to All on Wednesday, September 23, 2020 19:58:00
    Hi Everyone,

    I am trying to configure Tickit on my BBS for a couple of days now, and nothing seems to work :)

    I would really appreciate if one of you guys can help me out with my config, as my understaning of FIDO is pretty new to me.

    1. I have subscribed to all File Echo available using FileFix, and i received a confirmation that i am correctly subscribed.
    2. I then created a timed event to call tickit.js
    3. I edited tickit.ini, with the following (i created only 2 areas to test, 1:229/426 is my uplink). I am not about the global entries at the beginning, but i think they act as default values if a key is not present.

    Dir=FidoNetFOTHER
    Links=1:229/426

    [DAILYLIST]
    Dir=FIDONETFDailyLis
    links=1:229/426

    [MODIS]
    Dir=FIDONETFMODIS
    links=1:229/426
    4. 3-4 times/day, i can see in the log some .tic files coming in, and i see that they are processed by tickit, but no files are placed in my file areas.

    Any ideas ?
    Thanks so much,
    ElGringo

    Paste the log output that shows the files being processed by tickit.

    Also, confirm that you have file directories configured in SCFG->File Areas with those same internal codes you have listed there in your tickit.ini file.

    HI Digital Man,

    i just took a look at the actual directories and the files are there!!! but they're not added to the BBS.
    The Addfiles was not called, should i have a timed event for addfiles as well ? Cause i dont have one.

    Thanks again !

    Paste the log output that shows the files being processed by tickit.

    9-24 05:37:32a Running timed event: TICKIT
    9-24 05:37:33a TICKIT Parsing ../fido/inbound\/AO500RG6.TIC
    9-24 05:37:33a Timed event: TICKIT returned 0

    So looking at exec/tickit.js, it appears it should log "Processing..." and then "Working with <filename> in <tic_area>" log messagse after the "Parsing" log message. These are "info" level log messages, so they should normally be in the log output. You can try increasing the log level to "debug" to see if you see any more detail, but if it were me, I'd start adding more log() messages to tickit.js to see where's getting hung-up. It sounds like process_tic() is returning a falsey value, but it should also be logging an error in that case (which was not included in your pasted log output).

    No, tickit.js calls addfiles.
