    Hi All,
    I am new to BAJA programming and I have a question for someone.
    I was told by Rob that the telgate.src file can be modified to allow the user to input his own telnet address instead of using the ones that the sysop puts in.
    I looked at the telgate.src file and it's only a couple of lines long, I'm not sure on how to make the change to allow this. Can someone help?
    How would the command line in scfg be setup to allow this as well. I know the command is *telgate (domain or ip)
    Thank you in advance,

    TELGATE.SRC is five lines long. One is a clear-screen, one is a pause, two are informational prints and the only remaining line is "telnet_gate str". Did you think that maybe you have to get the desired address in 'str' then call telnet_gate? Did you think about using a 'getstr' to get the string? Exactly what have you tried?

    Hi Amcleod,
    I haven't tried anything yet....not sure where to begin. I wqas hoping that someone could help me figure this out.

    As Amcleod suggested, use GETSTR (see DOCS\BAJA.DOC for details).

    This is an extremely simple modification, but since you don't seem to want to figure anything out for yourself (not a put-down, I'm that way sometimes myself), here are some step-by-step directions:

    1. Copy EXEC\TELGATE.SRC to another file in the EXEC directory (perhaps TELNET.SRC).

    2. Edit EXEC\TELNET.SRC and add the following lines to the top of the file:
    PRINT "Enter telnet address: "
    GETSTR

    3. Type BAJA TELNET to compile the new module. If it reports any errors, go back to step 1.

    4. Create an external program with a command line of "*TELNET".

    5. Re-start the Telnet server.

    6. When a user runs the door, it'll prompt them to the enter the address.

    I think this is what you've been looking for.

    Rob

    Can you please explain the syntax of the COPY command? Pretty please? ;-)

    1. Copy EXEC\TELGATE.SRC to another file in the EXEC directory (perhap TELNET.SRC).
