 +
 +==== Security Requirements ====
 +
 +The //Access// and //Posting// Security Requirements shown above are expressed in Synchronet ARS syntax.
 +
 +These security requirements are explained in more detail here:
 +
 +The "​Synchronet Announcements"​ conference is a publicly accessible
 +**read-only** conference for announcements from authorized Synchronet
 +developers (currently only myself). No-one on your BBS may be allowed
 +to post messages in this message area. This can be accomplished in 
 +Synchronet by setting the "​Posting Requirements"​ to "USER NOT 0".
 +
 +The messages posted in this conference are also distributed as
 +an Internet mailing-list. You can subscribe to this mailing-list by
 +sending an Internet e-mail to listserv@synchro.net with
 +"​subscribe announce"​ in the message body.
 +
 +The "​Synchronet Sysops Only" conference should not be publicly accessible,
 +except for users that claim to be Synchronet Sysops.
 +
 +The "​Synchronet Data" conference contains messages not intended for human
 +consumption (the messages are used to synchronize the global BBS List and
 +Match Maker databases), so this message area should not be publicly
 +accessible.
 +
 +The "​DOVE-Net Sysops Only" conference MUST NOT be publicly accessible. This
 +message area is for discussion among DOVE-Net Sysops **ONLY**. This is the
 +correct message area to use for "test messages"​.
 +
 +If you have a Guest/​Anonymous user account on your BBS, it **MUST NOT** have
 +posting privileges to **any** of the DOVE-Net conferences. This can most
 +easily be achieved in Synchronet by giving the "​Guest"​ account the '​P'​
 +(posting) or '​N'​ (networked sub-board) restrictions. When the "​Guest"​
 +account is created using the stock Synchronet ''​makeguest.js''​ script, it will
 +already have the '​P'​ restriction applied.
 +
 +If a DOVE-Net QWKnet node (BBS) does not follow these Access Requirements,​
 +it can, without warning or notice, lose some or all of its DOVE-Net access.
 +
 +==== Gateways ====
 +
 +The following DOVE-Net conferences are already gated to other networks:
 +
 +  * Synchronet Discussion ​ <=> alt.bbs.synchronet [[USENET]] newsgroup
 +  * Synchronet Discussion ​ <=> SYNCHRONET echo on the [[usenet]] Zone 1 Backbone
 +  * Synchronet Sysops Only <=> SYNC_SYSOPS echo on the [[usenet]] Zone 1 Backbone
 +  * Synchronet Programming <=> SYNC_PROGRAMMING echo on the [[usenet]] Zone 1 Backbone
 +  * Synchronet Data        <=> SYNCDATA echo on the [[usenet]] Zone 1 Backbone
