LinBPQ includes an Application Interface that allows connections to TCP clients running on the same machine. This can be used to connect from LinBPQ to spider. You need to configure both LinBPQ and Linux
Allocate a TCP port for the link to spider. You can use any that aren't used by other programs. In this example I use 63000. Add a CMDPORT line to the Telnet Server config listing the port
CMDPORT 63000 ;
Add APPLICATION Line. These assume your Telnet Port
is port 2.
APPLICATION 1,SPIDER,C 2 HOST 0
You can add the usual Callsign, Alias and Quality params if you want
spider to be accessible from other nodes on the
Add a line to /etc/services and /etc/inetd.conf for spider
# Local services
bpqspider 63000/tcp # BPQ to Spider Link
bpqspider stream tcp nowait sysop /spider/src/client client login ax25
