• BinkD issues

    From Starstorm@VERT/MADNESS to All on Wed Jun 22 14:58:17 2016
    I am trying to switch from using Argus to BinkD, because it was suggested to me on one of the nets I am on, I was told it was easy, and used the wiki as a reference.

    I'm in about 5 othernets, from the wiki it is my understanding that the default zone is supposed to be the zone for the first address, and they all have to
    be set to the same zone, so I did that, the first one is also the one I have as "Main" in scfg, and the top one in BinkD config.

    I'm having a problem though, BinkD isn't sending out all of the packets, Synch is creating outbound folders and BinkD isn't touching those packets.

    I had some help, creating a new cfg file that is easier for me to understand, but it's big, otherwise I'd post it as an example here.

    I'm just trying to figure out why, BinkD isn't noticing all of the packets and sending them out, and I am so flustered with this mess.

    I run several othernets myself, as well as SBBS and binkd. How are your addresses defined?

    Here goes... This is the part that specifies my addresses. Synchronet (I'm running sbbsecho 2.x) doesn't have any facility to enter domains, so I use the same outbound tree for all domains.

    # Your FTN domains:
    # domain <name> <main-outbound> <default-zone> [<root-domain>]
    # or
    # domain <new-name> alias-for <name>
    # First specified domain sets as default domain for the 3D/4D addresses.
    #
    domain fidonet /sbbs/binkd/outbound 3
    domain fsxnet /sbbs/binkd/outbound 3
    domain sportnet /sbbs/binkd/outbound 3
    domain linuxnet /sbbs/binkd/outbound 3
    domain wwivftn /sbbs/binkd/outbound 3
    #domain amiganet /sbbs/binkd/outbound 3
    #domain agoranet /sbbs/binkd/outbound 3

    #
    # Aliases to support known wrong 5D configurations
    domain fido alias-for fidonet
    domain wwivnet alias-for wwivftn
    #domain amiga alias-for amiganet
    #domain ago alias-for agoranet

    #
    # Aliases to support known DNS domain zones
    # (some people is mix up the terms "FTN domain" and "DNS internet domain") domain fidonet.org alias-for fidonet
    domain fidonet.net alias-for fidonet
    #domain amiganet.org alias-for amiganet
    #domain agoranet.org alias-for agoranet

    #
    # Your addresses, 5D or 4D or 3D:
    # address <addr1> ...
    # If first address specified as 3D/4D then domain for it sets from domain
    # defined in the first "domain" token. If second and more addresses specified
    # as 3D/4D then domain sets from first address.
    # defined in the first "domain" token. If second and more addresses specified
    # as 3D/4D then domain sets from first address.
    #
    address 3:633/410@fidonet
    address 11:1/204@wwivftn
    address 21:1/109@fsxnet
    address 24:400/101@sportnet
    address 110:40/14@linuxnet
    #address 39:901/281@amiganet
    #address 46:3/201@agoranet


    I'm having a problem though, BinkD isn't sending out all of the
    packets, Synch is creating outbound folders and BinkD isn't touching
    those packets.

    I had some help, creating a new cfg file that is easier for me to understand, but it's big, otherwise I'd post it as an example here.

    Yours look similar to mine, except my outbound is set to /sbbs/ftn/out and my default zone is SFnet which is 42.

    Maybe I have something wrong in SBBSecho config, I don't know, but I am seeing packets in folders that aren't going out when I poll the hubs. A couple of test messages got out to fsxNet because I was messing around with the folders, but what I did doesn't work every time.

    There's gotta be something I set wrong, I'm just clueless as to what it could be.

    Hah

    I know what's going on, but I don't know why.

    For instance for fsxNet. SBBSecho is dropping outbound packets in Ou.015 folder, but BinkD is expecting Out.015.

    I got it!

    trailing \ missing from my outbound path

    *facepalm*

    *sigh* If software needs a trailing \ at the end of a path, IMO the software should have been made to check for that internally so that wouldn't be an
    issue at runtime..

    OK, no probs. And you're using the same outbound for all domains like I am?

    Maybe I have something wrong in SBBSecho config, I don't know, but I am seeing packets in folders that aren't going out when I poll the hubs. A couple of test messages got out to fsxNet because I was messing around with the folders, but what I did doesn't work every time.

    Just curious if there's any patterns to the packets that aren't moving.

    There's gotta be something I set wrong, I'm just clueless as to what it could be.

    Need more information.

    Hmm, that looks like a typo in your sbbsecho setup.

    Cool, good to see you got to the bottom of it. :-)

    What do you mean by "they all have to be set to the same zone"? Each of your "othernets" would normally have its own zone.

    I'm just trying to figure out why, BinkD isn't noticing all of the packets and sending them out, and I am so flustered with this mess.

    Can you give some specific examples?

    This is what I meant, from the BinkD page on the wiki "The DEFAULT ZONE does not change per network with sbbsecho. it is what's set up as the zone for your first FTN address."

    I was so confused when I posted that, but I did get my trouble sorted out, and it was actually rather silly. It was just password and path issues mostly.
