Ok Barry, I solved the problem of connecting the JNOS mailbox as a user 
with just simple telnet connection to it from my Windows Hyper terminal 
where I can enter the callsign with SSID. For the FBB access 
(forwarding), I conclude that is the best, at the moment, to configure 
ftpusers privileges for FBB to have no SSID. What about passwords? Now 
it is just nothing ("*"). Is it possible from somebody who come from a 
radio channel - to illegally use the same PBBS's callsign to enter JNOS 
mailbox and to make a mess in forwarding queue?

For all: The next questions to answer:

1. How to enable 'register' for new users in 1.11f ?
2. Is it possible in 1.11f to 'carbon copy' what is going on at its 
radio port channel, using the AXIP port, to the other computer running 
BPQ32? I mean, to transfer monitored data from the frequency JNOS is 
running on, via Ethernet, to the other computer(s) running Windows or 
Linux (in order to see what is going on the packet qrg), but to avoid 
installing BPQ or other additional software to JNOS machine.
3. Somewhere on the net I found a suggestion that all 'start <server>' 
lines in autoexec.nos should be placed at the end of it. Is that correct?
