Configuration settings specific to the selected node.

Option Name Default Description
Phone Number XXX-XXX-XXXX This is the phone number to access the selected node (i.e., for SEXPOTS). This value is used only for informational purposes.
Logon Requirements <empty> Use this option to set specific Requirements to logon this node.
Keep Node File Open Yes Keep the shared node file (ctrl/node.dab) open for better performance and reliability. If want to keep the file closed for Samba compatibility, set this option to No.
Daily Event <empty> Any valid command line that this node's terminal server should run each day. If multiple programs or commands are required, use a batchfile or shell script. This runs when the first caller after midnight logs off.
Node Directory ../node1/ Path to this node's private directory, where its separate configuration and data files are stored.

The drive and directory of this path can be set to any valid directory that can be accessed by all nodes.
Text Directory ../text/ Text directory that contains read-only text files.

:!: This directory contains the system's menus and other text files that are necessary for the BBS to run. If you change this config option, be sure to move all the necessary files and directories into the new text directory.
