• port 24555 node question

    From Marc Lewis@1:396/45 to All on Sun Dec 20 02:26:09 2020
    Hello All.

    My binkd is running at port 24554 but 2 nodes I connect with use 24555. My NODES.CFG for those looks like this:

    node 1:261/38 filegate.net:24555 xxxxxxxx
    node 1:320/219 bnbbbs.net:24555 xxxxxxxxx

    Will that or will that not work?

    Best regards,
    Marc

    That is how it is supposed to work!

    That should work just fine.

    That should work just fine.

    I tried it... But on my system running OS/2 it wouldn't send... So I did a little "brainstorming" and ran a separate instance of binkd with the oport in inports set to 24555 and a separate nodes.cfg with only those 2 nodes in it. Ran okay ONCE and sent the waiting stuff to 261/38 - - but after that both instances stopped responding to anything. Maybe is just something crazy on that machine, but I tried it again with the same result; both instances wouldn't respond to anything inbound or outbound...

    A little more "brainstorming" and I moved the 24555 server/client to a different machine. Since both machines have identical drive mappings it seems to be working, at least for the time being. I still have a learning curve to continue climbing.

    If anyone has any relative observations on this, I'm ready to listen and work on it as required to make this run dependably.

    Best regards,
    Marc

    That's what I have here.

    node 39:902/0@amiganet -md hub.bottomlessabyss.net:24554 x c
    node 44:972/0@dorenet -md pbmystic.rdfig.net:24555 x c
    node 46:1/100@agoranet bbs.pharcyde.org x c

    I've got one with the default port, one with a specific, and even one without
    a port number, so binkd uses the default.

    If anyone has any relative observations on this, I'm ready to listen and
    work on it as required to make this run dependably.

    It should work.

    Same applies here what I told Marc. Discard the 'c' at the end of those lines. They serve no function.

    Are they actually harmful or just have no function?

    I don't think they are harmfull, but you might get confused about what they do, if you look at your config in a couple of years and don't remember this conversation. ;-)

    Oh, I'll remember it. I'm actually thinking of changing out to binkit since it's all nicely integrated with sbbs. It's just taking that step and configuring it all.
