• A point question

    From Deon George@3:633/509 to All on Saturday, June 06, 2020 15:45:57
    Howdy,

    I just discovered in my outbound, a message to a downlink's point. (The downlink is 21:3/101 and the packet is to 21:3/101.1.)

    Because its in my outbound (I'm 21:3/100), I must have something in my routing that placed it there, instead of bundling it to the downlink. Is there a way that any mail to a point is automatically bundled to the downlink?

    Here is my routes if that helps:

    Route 21:3/101.0 direct (flavour: hold)
    Route 21:3/* direct (flavour: crash)
    Route 21:* via 21:1/100 (flavour: crash)

    (Other than some other downink hold statements, this is essentially my config for zone 21/3...).

    Should I change the middle statement to 21:3/*.0 direct? (I have it there so that all mail goes out crash to my downlinks unless on hold by a specific route
    above it.)

    ...

    ... Screw up your courage! You've screwed up everything else.

    Hola Deon!

    Route 21:3/101.0 direct (flavour: hold)

    I think this causes the node (.0) to go direct, but not its points.

    I would put

    Route hold 21:3/101 21:3/101.*

    Hi Tommi,

    route direct boss 21:3/101.*

    I was hoping to not do this for every downstream node. (I may not know that they stand up points.)

    Would "route direct boss *" work? (And not affect other crash/hold configs?)

    Hi Deon.

    06 Jun 20 21:19:22, you wrote to me:

    points.)

    It would. But it depends on the order of your route lines how wise it is... :)
