    SeaTel works great. I was wondering if you can incorporate rlogin also
    so that I can connect to some game servers.

    RLOGIN is not available in WINServer yet. I have it on the feature request list
    I am preparing for Hector to send to him on Friday, if not before.

    The there should be a PXWINS-SETUP.EXE or something like that in your
    PXW directory that you need to run to update to the latest release. As

    So the pxwims-setup.exe should be run again? The first time I got it I

    Here is the latest I have:

    But, yes, each time that file comes down on the AUP, it has to be run

    I asked Hector years ago to do something about the RLogin so that it would be compatible with Synchronet and Mystic and he said NO... Somebody will have to write a WCBasic file that would/should do the trick.

    Inbound rlogin would have to be a function of wcOnline.exe I would think, and not a function of a WCX.

    When I was speaking I was thinking about outbound, even when I was talking
    with Hector at the time. He just stated that it was unsecure... maybe he was thinking about just outbound side of things.

    Still would be nice to have an outbound rLogin mod for WINServer that would expedite an automatic login like SBBS & Mystic do...

    I might be able to write something that will let you do an interactive RLOGIN session to start off with, then go from there.

    It'll just have to pass either the user name or the user handle and

    So, I'm not sure exactly what you're talking about.... I know that you have tested out a few BBS packages... but if I can say something that might
    already be known. Both Mystic and Synchronet have an automated. I can
    control whether the BBS reads the handle or the real name... either way, the host RLogin BBS is reading info from the BBS trying to login. I can recall from playing with Mystic BBS that I can play with the Rlogin command line to get the user to get the user to login with the Handle....

    So, all we need to do is to get WINS to do the same. If Hector cold make outbound calls pass info so that it may be compatible to the automated
    connect. I know this may not be something Hector's interested in that... he's more focused on his commercial clients than he his about hobby BBS goers.

    I was just reading, and downloaded, but not used yet a file that will do the trick... Anyway.... I logged on to his BBS and "used" the program. It seems
    to work. I don't have a copy of WINS running, I will put it up after I move and I'll play with it then. From what I can tell he had a wcx file connect
    to the Game Server program and it logged me in so that GameServ knew who I
    was.

    No, the rlogin protocol in general, inbound and outbound, is as insecure
    as telnet is.

    Still would be nice to have an outbound rLogin mod for WINServer that would expedite an automatic login like SBBS & Mystic do...

    That might take some doing, and I doubt that because there are so few of
    us around, there is no one to really take an interest in such a
    project.

    Not exactly. The BSD Rlogin protocol as originally/officially defined does not send a password and the terminal/user is expected to be authenticated so long as the username is valid. Contrast that with Telnet where there is no expectation that the terminal/user is authenticated without providing complete and valid credentials (e.g. username *and* password).

    Robert do you use WINS to poll any qwk mail??

    We are talking specifically with WINServer. Yes, it is fairly easy -- if you want to write batch files and script the Windows FTP.EXE client. wcQWKnet
    does all that using WINServer's only FTP client code. wcQWKnet is bascially the QWKNET script for Synchronet ported over to WINServer.

    Not a problem :) Yeah, I got tired of having to deal with batch files so I wrote wcQWKnet to handle the polling, tossing, etc using WINServer's own internal code. It actually works out quite well and a number of people use
    it. Especially since I have made it a free product now :)

    Very cool! If you are interested, I can get you hooked up to WINSnet and XpressNet :)

    hey Robert, Are you using PX as front end or are you doing something similar
    to me I run irex and PX people say it will eliminate like Irex? As for
    Winsnet and xpressnet that will be fine as long as I dont need to poll them right away It seems when my system upgraded to 7 and new PX alot of my stuff was missing and I havent found my backup yet to see what I need to do to correct it. its been over a year since I messed with WC
    Thanks Sam

    I use Internet ReX for binkp between my system and other systems that are not mailer-over-telnet capable. BINKP is still not built into PX yet, and at this point I doubt it ever will be. When you upgraded to the new PX, you probably did not tell it to upgrade only so the files were overwritten. That was fixed in the installer with the latest PX/WINS 7 update.

    Yeah, I found it easier to do it with WINS' internal FTP code through a configurable WCX than through a batch file.

    Okay Ill give it a try since for some reason my batch doesn't seem too work
    any more. Its say authentication failure and I don't know why it works on my laptop but not my server. I copied from laptop to server.
    Very cool! If you are interested, I can get you hooked up to WINSnet and XpressNet :)

    Okay But I'm having trouble with getting FSX and Survnet and VKradio polling with out instructions it really hard to get the other networks to poll and receive mail. Any help in this matter would be appreciated. I'll buy the
    first round of beer!

    What kinds of issues are you having? I get fsxNet on both my Mystic and on my WINServer systems.

    Is that a utility you made?? I use to use wcqwk and it worked
    okay... never had a problem with it. I have forgot how I made it
    run. I need to figure out how to get a cfg file to poll vert.

    Yes, wcQWKnet is a WCX that I wrote and maintain.

    OMG, this is an old old message...

    I tried that in the past and couldn't get it to work... I run/ran a batch file using iFTP as a client to do QWK, works fine. U think Hector would have done something internal, it would have been nothing for him to do.

    I agree. Yeah, I have been thinking about giving iFTP a try, but with wcQWKnet
    4.0 about to be released, I would like that to be tested more before I make that commitment.

    Hello Joe

    batch file using iFTP as a client to do QWK, works fine.
    U think Hector would have done
    something internal, it would have been nothing for him to do.

    Hector Santos made QWK via FTP available on the Server side of Wildcat!
    more than ten years ago.

    I am retired now, but I ran QWK/FTP for my small business for several
    years with customers using various FTP Clients.

    It has to be manually setup and configured and there is more than one
    approach that can be used. In a nutshell its not there by default!

    I recall it being discussed in the Santronics Mailing Lists from time
    to time so if anyone is interested on the server side setup they could
    ask via the SSI list

    Best Wishes

    So where is it documented? Plus I don't think it's done quite the same
    way as Synchronet and Mystic do it to where the QWK packet is always "available" for downloading in the root directory of the FTP server.

    I am retired now, but I ran QWK/FTP for my small business for several

    Please, care to share the documentation on this?
