    Thanks for the fast reply , yes , i see that , the time was wrong , i am fine/tuning the system and just after several years i can get bak to being connected to Fidonet , for now BINKD/DOS DOS 6.22 and BINKD/Win16 Windows 3.11 works very well, its remains to make ir works on several system more than it had working \ Amiga 4000 /.

    Hello everybody!


    I have a question , im use Binkd DOS bases on version 0.9.5a/DOS, it took me a long long time to configure the IBM TCP/DOS since the configuration is tricked ( it did no solve internet names and Binkd/DOS can only be used on that network ) , my question if it whas ever tought to do it using a packet driver , right now i'm using a PC 386 DX40mhz, DOS 6.22, 8MB RAM, NE2000 compatible Network Card ( I also use a Binkd Win/16 with Windows 3.11 )

    programs i use

    Binkd/DOS - Fmail 1.6GPL - Golded/DOS

    Yeah, it works flawlessly, i tried the version in a Windows 98SE:

    binkd11a99-msvc-binkd9x-static <

    (Last version i found), in Windows 95 i suppose it should work without problems.

    I have a question , im use Binkd DOS bases on version 0.9.5a/DOS, it
    took me a long long time to configure the IBM TCP/DOS since the configuration is tricked ( it did no solve internet names and Binkd/DOS can only be used on that network ) , my question if it whas ever tought

    DOS 6.22, 8MB RAM, NE2000 compatible Network Card ( I also use a Binkd Win/16 with Windows 3.11 )

    So I use a pure DOS setup as well (MSDOS 6.22, Desqview/QEMM, QuickBBS,
    FMAIL) and I ported binkd to using wattcp and DJGPP a few weeks back. So it's version based off version 1.1 and I've used it for awhile and seems stable. I used it with a packet driver and it's had no issues at all.

    I've never officially published a binary but the source is on my github account. I'm not sure where I would distribute such a binary aside from my BBS or I guess my github account.

    github.com/mynameistroy

    I suppose publishing it through the filebone is also an option.

    I've also starting porting the latest fmail back to DOS as well again via
    DJGPP so maybe in a bit I'll have a new version of that to publish.

    Hello Troy,

    Yes, that is an option. I would appreciate that.

    I've also starting porting the latest fmail back to DOS as well again
    via DJGPP so maybe in a bit I'll have a new version of that to
    publish.

    I can think of a node who may be able to and would like to use this. The node I am thinking of is having trouble with his HMB and SuperBBS. His problem is the limitations of HMB.

    In any case I'm sure fmail for DOS would be a good thing to have. I'm not sure which FDN would be a good place to look to. Janis Kracht at 1:261/38 could direct you to a suitable FDN I am sure.

    Hey this looks interesting... I might even have a play.

    Can you put a "binary" package on github - under the releases (I dont know how you do that, but I've seen some projects do it - hpt is an example.)

    Could you share an instruction how to compile it (needed libriries, compiler version, etc...) and how to make DOS environment for testing (drivers, autoexec/config)?

    Ok so I followed the Makefile convention and created a new Makefile for DJGPP much like the others so that part is the same.

    WATT32 needs to be placed in a directory with the same parent as binkd. I
    build it myself and there are instructions on how to do so here http://watt-32.net/

    c:\src\binkd
    c:\src\watt
    \lib
    \bin
    etc, etc,

    I used the DJGPP 7.2.0 build from here https://github.com/andrewwutw/build-djgpp/releases

    As for a DOS environment I used MS-DOS on real hardware but I suspect a VM would be fine. As for setting up a packet driver that is far too much to be explained here since it depends on network card. There is enough information abound on the internet about setting that up accordingly.

    One caveat at the moment is the Makefile has directives to build for pentium architectures and you might need to change it to suit your needs.

    If I can help in any other way, ask away.

    I am using binkd in DOS for experimental and self-education purposes. I created a binkd port with WATTCP32, compiled by DJGPP. DOS packet drivers are for 3Com 3C905 or 3C509 network adapters.
