• rntrack and full 5D BSO

    From mark lewis@1:3634/12.73 to all on Tuesday, April 14, 2020 12:49:10

    it rntrack fully 5D complient?

    i have addresses in several FTNs and use 5D BSO so i'm trying to figure out if i need config files for each FTN...

    adding to this confusion is that all the examples and docs show only one FTN address on the Address: line in the configs so i'm not sure if i can specify all my addresses, if they are all to be specified on the one Address: line, or if i have to have multiple Address: lines... additionally, none of the examples
    is using 5D addressing...

    FWIW: my BSO is using the format where all outbounds have the hex extension on them except for my main outbound...

    eg:
    out/fidonet
    out/fidonet.002
    out/vkradio.1b0

    this is due to how my tosser handles 5D BSO and means that i have to lie to binkd and tell it all domains are zone 1...

    I've never tried using 5D addresses. I looked at the code now and I can say that there are no 5D addresses there.

    No, this is not allowed.

    or if i have to have multiple Address: lines...

    This is not allowed either.

    ok...

    well, i guess that settles that... rntrack is not a match for my star hub system with its various addresses and 5D BSO... i'll keep looking... thanks!
