• Feeder without a subscription

    From Alisha Stutz@2:301/1 to All on Friday, February 18, 2022 23:12:26
    Hello everybody!

    I have looked in the documentation, but I have not found a clue to my problem or solution.

    I have a pure content feeder that does not want to have a subscription but only
    echos distributed and does not want to receive an update from someone else.

    If I enter him with X:Y/Z in an EchoArea he gets an update but he doesn't want that, if he is not entered all his feeds go to BAD.

    How can I solve this so that he can feed without having a subscription?

    Alisha

    If I understood you right, you want to allow inbound mail from a node but not export anything to that node?

    You may add "-w" after that node in "echoarea" line.

    === cut ===
    -r Default read-only: set link read-only at subscribing
    -w Default write-only: set link write-only at subscribing
    === cut ===

    I add the -w argument to the like this

    EchoArea blah /var/spool/ftn/msgbase/NETWORK/blah -a Z/N/P -w -p 93
    -dupecheck move -dupehistory 366 -d "BLAH Content" -g BLAH_GROUP Subscription_Nodes

    But still when X/W/Z send some content to blah it go to BAD and i have this Information before the content is in BAD

    FROM: X:Y/Z
    REASON: Sender not active for this area
    AREANAME: blah

    What i do wrong or how i can avoid this? I want that the content is be added
    to this area without that X/Y/Z has a subscription.

    Best regards
    Alisha

    I add the -w argument to the like this

    EchoArea blah /var/spool/ftn/msgbase/NETWORK/blah -a Z/N/P -w -p 93 -dupecheck move -dupehistory 366 -d "BLAH Content" -g BLAH_GROUP Subscription_Nodes

    But still when X/W/Z send some content to blah it go to BAD and i have this Information before the content is in BAD

    FROM: X:Y/Z

    AREANAME: blah

    You should put '-w' after the node which you want to make write-only.

    Like:

    EchoArea blah /var/spool/ftn/msgbase/NETWORK/blah -p 93 -dupecheck move -dupehistory 366 -d "BLAH Content" -g BLAH_GROUP Subscription_Nodes Z/N/P -w

    Wrong position.

    EchoArea blah /var/spool/ftn/msgbase/NETWORK/blah -a Z/N/P -w -p 93 -dupecheck move -dupehistory 366 -d "BLAH Content" -g BLAH_GROUP Subscription_Nodes

    FROM: X:Y/Z

    AREANAME: blah

    That does not work. You can't send receive without subscription (aka being linked) because this would avoid any security protection. First you both have to establish a normal link. He must be a defined node in the link definition. He have to be linked in the echoarea "subscription", the keyword for the documentation is linkAKA. This would identify him as a legit user and his mails
    aren't moved to badmail anymore. There should be no way around this.

    Your main goal is that he does not receive content from the echoarea and he is send-only to this echoarea. The logic for this linkOption is visible at the -nm
    switch:

    ############################################################################## # EchoArea syntax
    #EchoArea <name> <file> [-b <msgbase>] [Options] [linkAKAs] [linkOptions]
    #
    #####
    # LinkOptions:
    #
    # -r
    # this link is read only
    #
    # -w
    # this link is write only
    #
    # -mn
    # this link is mandatory subscribed,
    # you may also set:
    # "<aka> -r -mn"
    # or
    # "<aka> -w -r"
    # and so on...

    <aka> does match the "linkAKA" term. To set the node to write only the end of the echoarea line should be

    Y:X/Z -w

    Regards

    Kai
