 ====== Use BinkD with Synchronet and SBBSecho ====== ====== Use BinkD with Synchronet and SBBSecho ======
  
-FIXME+Instructions on using BinkD (FidoNet/​TCP/​IP mailer) with Synchronet and SBBSecho by [[person:​Deuce]]. 
 + 
 +===== Variables ===== 
 + 
 +Ok, let's just run through them then... I'll use the following:​ 
 + 
 +^Variable ​ ^Purpose ^ 
 +|bP        |Your binkd path (Mine is ''/​usr/​bbs/​sbbs/​fido''​) | 
 +|sP        |Synchronet installation directory (e.g. ''/​usr/​bbs/​sbbs''​) | 
 +|fZ        |your Fidonet Zone (1 for north america) | 
 +|fA        |Your complete fidonet address (ie: 1:​140/​17) ​ | 
 +|SysN      |your BBS name (e.g. FreeBSD Synchronet) | 
 +|SL        |Your BBS location (e.g. Yorkton, Sk) | 
 +|SN        |Sysop name (e.g. Stephen Hurd)  | 
 +|HfA       |Your hub's FidoNet address (e.g. 1:140/1) | 
 +|HiA       |Your hub's internet address | 
 +|PASS      |The password for the hub | 
 + 
 +Note, IONs are listed as 300bps in the nodeinfo. 
 + 
 +===== binkd.cfg ===== 
 + 
 +The BinkD configuration file (a.k.a. ''​binkd.conf''​). 
 + 
 +<file binkd.cfg>​ 
 +domain fidonet bP/outbound fZ 
 +domain fido alias-for fidonet 
 +domain fidonet.org alias-for fidonet 
 +address fA@fidonet 
 +sysname "​SysN"​ 
 +location "​SL"​ 
 +sysop "​SN"​ 
 +nodeinfo 300,​TCP,​BINKP 
 +connect-timeout 60

 +hold 600

 +prescan 
 +node HfA@fidonet -md HiA PASS 
 +</​file>​ 
 + 
 +**Tip:** Use forward-slashes (''/''​) in file names and paths in your ''​binkd.cfg''​ file (even on Windows) rather than backslashes (''​\''​). 
 + 
 +**Tip:** Use ''​root-domain binkp.net''​ in your ''​binkd.cfg''​ file to enable IP address look-ups from a FidoNet node number (e.g. FidoNet address ''​1:​103/​705''​ can be resolved to an IP address using the hostname ''​f705.n103.z1.binkp.net''​). This used to be possible using the domains ''​fidonet.net''​ and ''​fidonet.org'',​ but not currently (use ''​binkp.net''​ instead). 
 + 
 +**NOTE:** If root-domain is used, it applies to //all// FTNs listed. This is not proper if you are in more than one FTN because all f.n.z DNS lookups will go to this domain no matter what FTN they are. In the case of binkp.net, it only knows fidonet. Each FTN that provides DNS lookups for f.n.z format need their own DNS lookup host specified. So you should use the newer format of binkd'​s domain lines which place the DNS lookup host at the end of the line. At this time, there are only four FTNs that provide f.n.z DNS lookups. For all others, do not put anything in the "DNS lookup host" field of the domain lines. When using this form of domain line, be sure to remove or comment out any root-domain line you may have. 
 + 
 +eg:<file binkd.cfg>​ 
 +  #domain FTN      outbound dir  zone  DNS lookup host 
 +  domain ​ fidonet ​ bP/​outbound ​  ​fZ ​   binkp.net 
 +  domain ​ fsxnet ​  ​bP/​outbound ​  ​fZ ​   fsxnet.nz 
 +  domain ​ scinet ​  ​bP/​outbound ​  ​fZ ​   scinet-ftn.org 
 +  domain ​ vkradio ​ bP/​outbound ​  ​fZ ​   ftn.vkradio.com

 +===== SBBSecho ===== 
 + 
 +FIXME - This howto show old sbbsecho config settings (must be update to new sbbsecho.ini format) 
 + 
 +Here's my ''​[[config:​sbbsecho.cfg]]''​ file with the same replacements as above: 
 + 
 +<file sbbsecho.cfg>​ 
 +NOTIFY 1 
 +SECURE_ECHOMAIL 
 +FUZZY_ZONE 
 +FLO_MAILER 
 +KILL_EMPTY 
 +LOG 0FFFFFFF 
 +INBOUND bP/​inbound/​ 
 +SECURE_INBOUND bP/​inbsecure/​ 
 +OUTBOUND bP/​outbound/​ 
 +ARCSIZE 0 
 +PKTSIZE 0 
 +PKTPWD ALL PASS 
 +PACKER ZIP 0 504B 
 +  PACK /​usr/​local/​bin/​zip %f %s 
 +  UNPACK /​usr/​local/​bin/​unzip -j %f -d %s 
 +END 
 +USEPACKER ​ ZIP ALL 
 +AREAFIX ​   ALL PASS 
 +ROUTE_TO ​  HfA ALL 
 +</​file>​ 
 + 
 +===== Multiple Zones ===== 
 + 
 +That's all fine and dandy if Fido is the only FTN network you're on... but what if you're a member of more than one (a.k.a. "​othernets"​). Well, things get a teensy bit more complicated. We'll need a couple more replacements. 
 + 
 +^Variable ​ ^Purpose ^ 
 +|xA        |Your complete othernet address (e.g.: 777:777/52) | 
 +|HxA       |Your x-league hub's FTN address (e.g.: 777:777/0) | 
 +|HxiA      |Your x-league hub's internet address | 
 +|xPASS ​    |The password for the othernet hub  | 
 + 
 +Moreover, we'll have to explicitly route all FidoNet stuff by zone to your fidonet hub. The DEFAULT ZONE does not change per network with sbbsecho... it is what's set up as the zone for your first FTN address. The following lines are added to the previous example ''​binkd.cfg''​ file: 
 + 
 +<file binkd.cfg>​ 
 +domain othernet bP/outbound fZ 
 +address xA@othernet 
 +node HxA@othernet -md HxiA xPASS 
 +</​file>​ 
 + 
 + 
 +And the corresponding ''​[[config:​sbbsecho.cfg]]''​ looks like this: 
 + 
 +<file sbbsecho.cfg>​ 
 +NOTIFY 1 
 +SECURE_ECHOMAIL 
 +FUZZY_ZONE 
 +FLO_MAILER 
 +KILL_EMPTY 
 +LOG 0FFFFFFF 
 +INBOUND bP/​inbound/​
