|BBS Name||This is the name of the BBS.|
|Location||This is the location of the BBS. The format is flexible, but it is suggested you use the City, State format for clarity.|
|Local Time Zone||Choose the region which most closely reflects your local time zone. If your region is not listed, choose not US and then “Other...” from the menu. You will then be able to set the UTC offset manually.|
|Operator||This is the name or alias of the system operator. This does not have to be the same as user #1. This field is used for informational purposes only.|
|Password||This is an extra security password required for sysop logon and certain sysop functions. This password should be something not easily guessed and should be kept absolutely confidential. This password must be entered at the Terminal Server “SY:” prompt.|
|Users Can Change Password||If you want the users of your system to have the option of changing their password to a string of their choice, set this option to “Yes.” For the highest level of security, set this option to “No.”|
|Days to Preserve Deleted Users||Deleted user slots can be “undeleted” until the slot is written over by a new user. If you want deleted user slots to be preserved for period of time since their last logon, set this value to the number of days to keep new users from taking over a deleted user's slot.|
|Maximum Days of Inactivity|| If you want users that have not logged-on in a certain period of time to be automatically deleted, set this value to the maximum number of days of inactivity before the user is deleted. Setting this value to “0” disables this feature.
Users with the “P” exemption will not be deleted due to inactivity.
|New User Password||If you want callers to only be able to logon as “New” only if they know a secret password, enter that password here. If you prefer any caller be able to logon as “New,” leave this option blank.|
╔═══════════════════════════════════════╗ ║ Toggle Options ║ ╠═══════════════════════════════════════╣ ║ │Allow User Aliases Yes ║ ║ │Allow Time Banking No ║ ║ │Allow Credit Conversions Yes ║ ║ │Allow Sysop Access Yes ║ ║ │Display/Log Passwords Locally Yes ║ ║ │Short Sysop Page No ║ ║ │Include Sysop in Statistics No ║ ║ │Closed to New Users No ║ ║ │Use Location in User Lists Yes ║ ║ │Military (24 hour) Time Format No ║ ║ │European Date Format (DD/MM/YY) No ║ ║ │User Expires When Out-of-time No ║ ║ │Require Sys Pass During Login Yes ║ ║ │Display Sys Info During Logon Yes ║ ║ │Display Node List During Logon Yes ║ ╚═══════════════════════════════════════╝
This is a menu of system related options that can be toggled between two or more states, such as Yes and No.
|Allow User Aliases||Yes||Allow users to be known by a handle, alias, or callsign. If you want all users on your system to be known only by their real names, select No.|
|Allow Time Banking||No||Allow users to deposit any extra time they may have left during a call into their minute bank. If this option is set to No, then the only way a user may get minutes in their minute bank is to purchase them with credits.|
|Allow Credit Conversions||Yes||Allow users to convert any credits they may have into minutes for their minute bank.|
|Allow Sysop Access||Yes|| Allow users with system operator access to perform privileged sysop functions while logged into the BBS. Setting this option to No will prevent users with sysop security level from invoking functions that require system-password authentication. Instead, when a sysop function is attempted the request is ignored.
This effectively overrides “Require Sys Pass During Login” below. The sysop will still be able to login to the BBS as a normal user, but will not be asked for the system password and will not be able to invoke sysop functions that required the password.
This setting also affects the sysop actions available in the FTP server when authenticating with <user-pass>:<system-pass> as the password. The sysop user can still authenticate and login, but none of the sysop actions will be available to them.
|Display/Log Passwords Locally||Yes|| Displays passwords locally and logs them to disk (e.g., when there's a failed login attempt).
For elevated security, set this option to No.
|Short Sysop Page||No||Audibly page the sysop with a short series of beeps instead of continuous random tones.|
|Include Sysop in Statistics||No||Include sysops in the statistical data of the BBS. The suggested setting for this option is No so that statistical data will only reflect user usage and not include sysop maintenance activity.|
|Closed to New Users||No||Prevent callers from logging on as New and creating a new user.|
|Use Location in User Lists||Yes||Display user locations (city, state) in the user lists. If this option is set to No, the user notes (if they exist) are displayed instead.|
|Military (24 hour) Time Format||No||Display and enter time of day in 24-hour format.|
|European Date Format (DD/MM/YY)||No||Display and enter dates in DD/MM/YY format instead of MM/DD/YY format.|
|User Expires When Out-of-time||No||Set users to Expired Account Values (configured elsewhere in the System menu) immediately if they run out of time while logged in.|
|Require Sys Pass During Login||Yes||Require the system password, along with the sysop's personal user account password, immediately when a system operator is logging in. “Allow Sysop Access” above must be set to Yes for this setting to take effect.|
|Display Sys Info During Logon||Yes||Display system information during logon.|
|Display Node List During Logon||Yes||Display the active nodes during logon.|

Care should be taken when modifying any of the options listed here.
Note: For the directories, forward slashes will work in Windows and are preferred over backslashes as they will work cross-platform.
|New User Magic Word||<empty>|| If this field has a value, it is assumed the sysop has placed some reference to this magic word in text/newuser.msg and new users will be prompted for the magic word after they enter their password. If they do not enter it correctly, it is assumed they didn't read the new user information displayed to them and they are disconnected.
Think of it as a password to guarantee that new users read the text displayed to them.
|Data Directory||../data|| The Synchronet data directory contains almost all the data for your BBS. This directory must be located where all nodes can access it and must not be placed on a RAM disk or other volatile media.
This option allows you to change the location of your data directory.
|Logs Directory||../data|| Log files will be stored in this directory.
By default, this is set to the same as your Data File directory.
|Exec Directory||../exec|| The Synchronet exec directory contains program and script files that the BBS executes. This directory does not need to be in your OS search path.
If you place programs in this directory for the BBS to execute, you should place the %! specifier for the exec directory at the beginning of the configured command-lines.
This option allows you to change the location of your exec directory.
|Mods Directory||../mods|| This optional mods directory can be used to specify a location where modified module files are stored. These modified modules will take precedence over modules with the same filename (in the exec directory) and will not be overwritten by future updates/upgrades.
Sub-directory searches of this directory also take precedence (e.g. mods/load/* overrides exec/load/*).
If this directory is blank, then this feature is not used and all modules are assumed to be located in the exec directory.
|Input SIF Questionnaire||<empty>||This is the name of a SIF questionnaire file that resides your text directory that all users will be prompted to answer when creating their new user account.|
|Output SIF Questionnaire||<empty>||This is the SIF file used when the Sysop reviews the questionnaire answers from the user edit function (;UEDIT). If no output SIF is specified, the input SIF questionnaire is used.|
|Credits Per Dollar||2,097,152||This is the monetary value of a credit (How many credits per dollar). This value should be a power of 2 (1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, etc.) since credits are usually converted in 100 kibibyte (102400) blocks. To make a dollar worth two mebibytes of credits, set this value to 2,097,152 (a mebibyte is 1024*1024 or 1048576).|
|Minutes Per 100k Credits||6||This is the value of a minute of time online. This field is the number of minutes to give the user in exchange for each 100K credit block.|
|Maximum Number of Minutes||Unlimited||This value is the maximum total number of minutes a user can have. If a user has this number of minutes or more, they will not be allowed to convert credits into minutes. A sysop can add minutes to a user's account regardless of this maximum. If this value is set to 0, users will have no limit on the total number of minutes they can have.|
|Warning Days Till Expire||30||If a user's account will expire in this many days or less, the user will be notified at logon. Setting this value to 0 disables the warning completely.|
|Last Displayable Node||250||This is the number of the last node to display to users in node lists. This allows the sysop to define the higher numbered nodes as invisible to users.|
|Phone Number Format||!!!!!!!!!!!!||This is the format used for phone numbers in your local calling area. Use N for number positions, A for alphabetic, or ! for any character. All other characters will be static in the phone number format. An example for North American phone numbers is NNN-NNN-NNNN.|
|Sysop Chat Override||<blank>||Any user meeting the criteria set here will be able to page the sysop regardless of the status of the sysop availability.|
|User Database Backups||5||Setting this option to anything but 0 will enable automatic daily backups of the user database. This number determines how many backups to keep on disk.|
|Mail Database Backups||5||Setting this option to anything but 0 will enable automatic daily backups of the mail database. This number determines how many backups to keep on disk.|
|Maximum Log File Size||Unlimited|| This option allows you to limit the size of the following log files created and appended to by Synchronet in the logs directory (inside the data directory):
hungup.log; error.log; crash.log; hack.log; spam.log; guru.log
The largest supported log file size limit is 4294967295 (3.99G) bytes. Log files that have reached or exceeded the configured size limit are retained by renaming the *.log file to *.#.log beginning with *.0.log.
You must also specify the number of older/max-size log files to retain. The largest number of supported retained rotated log files is 9999. Oldest rotated log files are automatically deleted to save disk space.
|Control Key Pass-through||0|| This value is a 32-bit hexadecimal number. Each set bit represents a control key combination that will not be handled internally by Synchronet or by a Global Hot Key Event.
To disable internal handling of the Ctrl-C key combination (for example) set this value to 8. The value is determined by calculating 2n, where n is the ASCII value of the control character (Ctrl-A is 1, Ctrl-B is 2, etc.). In the case of Ctrl-C (n=3), 23=8.
To pass-through multiple control key combinations, multiple bits must be set (or'd together) to create the necessary value, which may require the use of a hexadecimal calculator.
If unsure, leave this value set to 0, the default.

- Exec folder: Baja module
For these modules, only the name of the file is accepted as an SCFG configuration value (no .js or .bin file extension):
|Login||login||Required module for interactive terminal logins. Occurs when a user is connected, immediately after the Synchronet copyright notice is displayed. Successful autologins (e.g., SSH, rlogin) will not display this module.|
|Logon||logon||Executed during terminal logon procedure, immediately after a successful login (both autologin or using the Login module above.|
|Sync||<empty>||Executed when terminal nodes are periodically synchronized (e.g., when node messages are received, node status is read, etc. while a user is online).|
|Logoff||<empty>||Executed during terminal logoff procedure (interactive). Does not occur when users hang up on the BBS or do a fast logoff.|
|Logout||<empty>||Executed during terminal logout procedure (offline) after a user has disconnected from the BBS, either by logging off or hanging up.|

This is a list of the ten quick-validation sets. These sets are used to quickly set a user's security values (Level, Flags, Exemptions, Restrictions, Expiration Date, and Credits) with one keystroke. Also, the user's expiration date may be extended and additional credits may be added.
From within the User Edit function, a sysop can use the Validate User command and select from this quick-validation list to change a user's security values with very few keystrokes. This is done with the 'V' command from the User Editor when logged-in to the BBS (;UEDIT command), or from the user list in GtkMonitor on Unix systems.
