• Validating BBSes in the l

    From Max Haven@VERT to All on Sun Nov 16 04:21:00 2014
    Is there some way of validating BBSes in the BBS List without having to remember to do it manually all the time? I just want to validate my BBS' entry in the BBS List external running over here.All the others come from the
    message base.

    Thanks!

    If you have no changes you can setup a timed event to run SMB2SBL on a monthly basis...

    If you increase the number onthe first line of your xtrn/sbl/sbl.cfg file, SBL will remind you and require you to validate your entry less often.

    There is already a timed event. It is one of the default ones and set to run at 03:00 every day. I only modified it slightly to use the Fidonet SYNCDATA message area instead of the DOVE-Net one.

    I'm just looking for a way to keep this BBS' listing in the BBS List from being deleted. It would be nice if there was an option to not delete an entry at all. I can understand why there is not such an option since the list is distributed, though.

    Thank you, sir. I never thought to look for a config file. I've set it to 60 days now.

    I must say that I've not gotten any notices about pending deletion in the past. Will this change make it notify me X days before it is deleted? What happens if I don't see the message until later? I've just been catching it being deleted when I've gone into the program to see what systems are listed. It took me a little while to see that I could undelete a listing ;)

    I think what he meant was that he was looking for an automated way of updating, rather than having to remember to manually go into SBL and use
    "U" to update.

    I think I've asked that in the past as well, but I don't think there was
    any other way to update yourlisting.

    No, no automated way.

    haven't been updated in half the time specified on the first line in

    Hmmm. I have never seen any notice to that effect. I thought it was automatic actully, as long as I originally registered manually, it would stay there with the downloads of the echo that lists systems.

    That is what I thought we were talking about as well. Memory is a bit foggy, but I thought I added it on YOUR system when I first got Synchronet. I may be wrong though <G>. Is there not an echo, or message area, from Dove, that I get as a fidonet echo, that shows this list?

    Unfortunately, I think most other systems are set to 30 days? And if most systems (including andmost importantly, Vertrauen) are set to 30 days, by the time you get your warning, your entry will already be deleted from themaster list.

    I haven't gotten any noticed either that I know of. But I'm pretty sure you have to go into SBL and update the entry manually using the "U" option within 30 days, or it's auto-deleted from the master list.

    I went ahead and increased the deletion duration to 180 days (6 months) on Vertrauen, so that shouldn't be an issue now.

    I've gotten accustomed to the 30 days thing anyways, so it's no biggie to me. But that may help others that tend to forget to update. Or, it may just make them forget over a longer period of time. :)

    Oh! Wait. The notices are to the entry owner? Maybe Waldo's account was getting them since he created the entry for me? I'll have to ask him and see. Maybe we can change that?

    Thanks again!

    The listings entered on my system as not scanned out and sent anywhere else. I have that event, SBL2SMB disabled. The opposite event, SMB2SBL, is enabled to update the list from the SYNCDATA message area. ;)

    I think that Digital Man gave us a clue in his last message. He said that the notices are sent to the entry's owner. Waldo createdthe entry for me so I
    guess he is the one getting the notices? Now I need to figure out where they can be found.

    Whoops. Hit the wrong key the first time. That might explain then why I never got any notice <G>. Is there someplace, a good explanation on how the Route-to option in BSO format works? I'm missing my route table from the arc attach system, and the ones I tried (for Z2 points) apparently did not like the satatement, as they continued trying to contact the point address, rather then the address it was supposed to route to. Could I perhaps just import the complete route table I was using originally complete with Except statements? --- SBBSecho 2.27-Win32

    Is there some way of validating BBSes in the BBS List without having to remember to do it manually all the time? I just want to validate my BBS' entry in the BBS List external running over here. All the others come from the message base.

    I must say that I've not gotten any notices about pending deletion in
    the past. Will this change make it notify me X days before it is
    deleted? Whathappens if I don't see the message until later? I've
    just been catching it being deleted when I've gone into the programto
    see what systems are listed. It took me a little while to see that I
    could undelete a listing ;)

    SBL starts sending out notices (during it's daily maintenance) for entries that haven't been updated in half the time specified on the first line in your SBL.CFG file. So, if that's set to 60 days, after
    30 days of no edit/validation,SBL will start to warn the entry owner.

    Thank you for that information. Are these notices posted as messages?

    As user telegrams.

    Oh! Wait. The notices are to the entry owner?

    Correct.

    Maybe Waldo's account was
    getting them since he created the entry for me?

    Most likely.

    I'll have to ask him and see. Maybe we can change that?

    Probably best to remove it and recreate the entry yourself.

    If you create the entry on the Vertrauen then the notice would be sent to your user account on Vertrauen (you would see it when you logged in).


    Whoops. Hit the wrong key the first time. That might explain then why I never got any notice <G>. Is there someplace, a good explanation on how
    the Route-to option in BSO format works?

    http://wiki.synchro.net/util:sbbsecho under "Route To".

    I'm missing my route table from
    the arc attach system, and the ones I tried (for Z2 points) apparently did not like the satatement, as they continued trying to contact the point address, rather then the address it was supposed to route to. Could I perhaps just import the complete route table I was using originally
    complete with Except statements?

    No.

    Telegrams? Is that something that ends up in the private mail area?

    Oh! Wait. The notices are to the entry owner?

    Correct.

    OK. That makes sense. The sysop doesn't need to be notified each time a user created entry changes.

    Maybe Waldo's account was getting them since he created the entry for
    me?

    Most likely.

    He said that he remembers seeing some kind of messages about the entry but when he went back to reread them, he couldn't find them in his private message area. :(

    I'll have to ask him and see. Maybe we can change that?

    Probably best to remove it and recreate the entry yourself.

    No thanks. It took too long to get it the way we have it now. It was edited quite a few times to understand the layout when it is displayed. We finally got it looking the way we want it. Now we just need to keep itfrom being deleted
    ;)

    I also found that I was able to change the ownership of the entry so I changed it to my handle. Will that work or do I have to use my real name?

    To clarify the "layout when displayed" comment. We don't want a bunch of the same connection stuff listed when it is the same for each node the system can handle. At least one system in the list has like 10 nodes and their listing shows the exact same domain 10 times. That's what we wanted to avoid. There was also something about the supported terminal protocols that we played around with getting listed how we wanted.

    Thanks for your time and the information! :)

    Yeah, it will have to wait until I have some more time to work on this :(, too many other things happening right now. I asked about a detailed explaination for the route command, and was pointed to the wiki, which has a single line, or two explaining only what it is and that it is only there in a BSO setup. What I would like to know, is the order of things, and specific commands. It mentions /ALL but not sure I want to do that. Like I said, in the near future, along with the implementation of IPv6 in my router.

    Is there some way of validating BBSes in the BBS List without having
    to remember to do it manually all the time? I just want to validate my
    BBS' entry in the BBS List external running over here. All the others
    come from the message base.

    If you increase the number on the first line of your xtrn/sbl/sbl.cfg file, SBL will remind you and require you to validate your entry less
    often.

    Thank you, sir. I never thought to look for a config file. I've set it to
    60 days now.

    I must say that I've not gotten any notices about pending deletion in the past. Will this change make it notify me X days before it is deleted? What happens if I don't see the message until later? I've just been catching it being deleted when I've gone into the program to see what systems are listed.
