    With Baja Programing is there a way to give users a choice at logon?
    Say : 1-to continue to logon to the bbs or 2_load alternet bbs sowtware.

    People write logon modules that offer a list of choices prior to logon. I suppose you could develop one that ran your alternate as a door?

    This was just a quick thing, I never actualy tested it.

    #Sample login.src

    !include sbbsdefs.inc

    # Get key (with / extended commands allowed)
    compare_user_misc UM_COLDKEYS
    if_false
    getkeye
    else
    getstrupr 60
    endif

    print "Choose your BBS:"
    print "(S)ynchronet BBS"
    print "(T)eleguard"

    cmdkey S
    exec_bin loginsb.bin
    end_cmd

    cmdkey T
    exec_bin telgate roversrv.darktech.org
    end_cmd

    It leaves a lot to be desired, basicly to run it you would have to compile it and copy your existing login.bin to loginsb.bin

    As long as you have the subsystem configured to accept telnet requests, yes. I tried running a WWIV sub system from Synch, just to see if it would work and it did. Most BBS executables will give you a command line switch menu, I.e.

    Telling the BBS someone is already connected via telnet on port xx

    Supressing echo if necessary

    Telling the BBS not to hang up when the caller logs off

    exit with errorlevel (x) (handy to trigger your mailer if you so choose)

    etc, etc..

    just set your logon routine to exec "SUBBBS.BAT", and pass along any paramaters you may need I.e.

    "SUBBBS %1 %2 %3", to get the switches working. What system were you planning on running?

    another way is to use telnet_gate, and set your sub BBS to listen to another port. i.e - in baja...

    sprintf str "impactmatrix.dhs.org:24"
    telnet_gate str
    etc...

    Hope it helps :)
