I'm having difficulty connecting to a BPQ system with 2.0k.rc using your
I read the example here:
# Here we are talking to a remote BPQ system
telnet 44.x.y.z 8011 cronly
But I see different behavior.
The BPQ sysop gave me two telnet ports to try:
One, he calls the telnet port
One, he says he thinks is for FBB logins.
When I try the "FBB login" port, I get connected, but there is no SID, no
prompt, no nothing.
If I just go ahead and send my call sign (as in the example above), then BPQ
responds with "user:"
That can't be right. So I disconnected.
When I try the telnet port with the BPQ/BPQBB expect/send sequence above, I
get a protocol error.
When I try the telnet port without the BPQ/BPQBB sequence above, I get:
BPQ: Welcome to blah, blah .
BPQ: Press ? for list of commands
BPQ: blah, blah Connected to BBS
BPQ: NTS traffic handlers are needed blah blah.>
Looks o.k., but:
I do *NOT* get "BPQ" as shown in the example above. Is this expected on a
line by itself?
Also, I had to *NOT* use cronly. If I use cronly, then the session hangs
after JNOS sends it's SID and FF.
Also, it only accepts uppercase in response to the user: prompt. No big
deal, but different from above.
So neither situation matches the example.
O.K. But does it work?
No. When I try to send a message via the telnet port, I get connected, make
the proposal, it is accepted, I send the message, and then it hangs.
tcp <ipaddress> <port>
Is there something I'm missing?
