• Amiga City Tradewars 2002

    From DUMAS WALKER@VERT/CAPCITY2/CAPCITY to MARISAG on Sun Dec 3 10:07:00 2017
    │ Great, have fun! :)

    Well, I am able to connect and log on fine using Syncterm. However, when I
    set the game up using telgate, it is not able to connect. Aside from the default telgate command line, are there any other special external program settings I should be using?

    Right now, I am using the same external program settings in SCFG as are set
    up to connect to the Vert BBS. I used those because I know that connection does work.

    I either do not get any error message, or I get an "unable to connect" or
    one of the "expected telnet" protocol errors. In other words, I get a different error every time I try. <grin> My synchronet output window does
    not show any error messages, either. Just a message that telgate has
    started and, 5 seconds later, that it disconnects.

    *telgate amigacitytw.xyz

    I also tried, just for kicks:

    *telgate amigacitytw.xyz 23

    Thanks!

    hello, it's working for me via telgate. are you trying to use * to run the baja telgate? or do you have a .js telgate script

    Actually, I am running using the '*' because that is what the default
    entries for the telnet to other BBSes had set up in them. Should I take
    the '*' out?

    No, '*' or '?' as a prefix for JS scripts is fine.

    can you do a screenshot of your sfg or wherever you are putting this code.

    Yes. A '*' prefix will execute *either* a JS module or a Baja/bin module, with a preference for JS (exec/*.js will preempt exec/*.bin). A '?' prefix will execute *only* a JS module, no "fallback" to *.bin if the .js file doesn't exist.

    No I used to could but this new version of scfg (under linux) does not open
    in a window that allows copy and paste actions.

    It says:

    *telgate amigacitytw.xyz

    All of the other entries are of the same value as the entry for Vert in
    "Other Synchronet Systems," which does work just fine.

    you have a bad command in there and we need to see it.

    Right, but to allow my users to telnet to it from my board, I have to set
    it up as an external program, using telgate to make the connection. To do that, I have to set it up in SCFG in the online program (doors) section,
    which puts it on the doors menu in SBBS.

    How else would my SBBS system telnet to your server?

    No, I have tried it. I cannot, and have not been able to since I upgraded synchronet. The older version of SCFG opened in a lxterminal window, which
    had a toolbar that included copy and paste. The new version opens in a
    native window, does not have a toolbar and, when I attempt to highlight the text, it will not stay highlighted and will not copy anywhere.

    But I can copy by hand.

    Internal Code - TW2002AC
    Start up dir - blank
    Command line - *telgate amigacitytw.xyz
    Clean up - blank
    Cost - none
    Access Reqs - blank
    Exec reqs - REST NOT G
    Multiple users - YES
    Drop file type - none
    Place drop file in - node dir

    All Set NO:
    Intercept I/O
    Native Exec
    Use Shell
    Modify user data
    Exec on event
    Pause after exec

    Time options are - NONE, NONE, NO, NO

    That's it. The settings were all copied (actually, the entry was copied
    from) the settings that do work to telnet to Vert.

    you should be able to do a screenshot SOME HOW.

    just you typing in things doesnt show me anything.

    i cant tell you the countless times i've helped someone and they swore they had it setup correctly and then i go in their via teamviewer or vnc and it is NOT setup the way i said.

    anyways. DELETE your bad entry. delete it.

    create a new one with exactly the same settings. change nothing.
    if it doesnt work, shoot your computer.

    Now mine looks exactly like yours. It connects for ~6 seconds, shows no
    error message, and disconnects.

    What OS are you using? Mine is under debian, latest version.

    that was windows and now i have it on ubuntu on bbses.info and it works.

    you need to figure out how to do a screenshot before anything else.
    i dont believe you are the one guy on the planet besides crazy daryl who cant take a screenshot of some sort.


    could be the operator is blocking you. i dont know what your setup is, so dont know what it could be.

    How else would my SBBS system telnet to your server?

    by running the telgate.js script straight from your shell script.

    And my users would access that how? Seriously. :) As it is, I am 99% sure telgate is starting because I am getting the message letting me know what
    key combo to use to get to the telnet command prompt. telgate is not able
    to complete (or maintain) the connection, though.

    Maybe for other things but, in this case, it'd be pointless. You've already seen my settings so showing you a screenshot would likely not get us any farther.

    telgate is firing up on this end, so I don't think it has anything to do with my SCFG settings anyway. It could have something to do with some other
    setting somewhere, or the version of telgate I have could be buggy.

    They would access it byt whatever hotkey you setup in the command loop to run it. what are you telgate to? have you used a regular telnet program to try to access the same address? I think i'm missing some info here or something. It sounded to me like you wanted to set telgate up to run straight from your menu shell instead of running from your xtrn section. either way, if you are connecting to the host and not able to maintain the connection, it sounds like there is a issue on the host side.
