Node SYSOP Mode

The SYSOP password is defined by the BPQ32.cfg PASSWORD command.

To enter SYSOP Mode, type PASSWORD

When accessed remotely, a password prompt is sent, containing 5 random numbers in the range 1 to the length of the PASSWORD string. Enter PASSWORD followed by the corresponding five letters from the password string. If entered from a local terminal or via a Telnet session with SYSOP flag set you will go straight to SYSOP mode.

For Example:

To obtain sysop status locally enter:

password			[command entry]
TRFDX:N5IN-3} Ok		[switch response]
t3				[example command entry]
TRFDX:N5IN-3} T3	28	[switch response]


To obtain sysop status remotely enter:

password
TRFDX:N5IN-3} 04 10 03 07 04
password 7tzt7		[command entry]
TRFDX:N5IN-3} Ok		[switch response]
t3				[example command entry]
TRFDX:N5IN-3} T3	28	[switch response]

The password command entry is case insensitive.

The following commands are supported:


Port Params

TXDELAY
MAXFRAME
FRACK
RESPTIME
PPACLEN
RETRIES
QUALITY
PERSIST
TXTAIL
XMITOFF
DIGIFLAG
DIGIPORT
MAXUSERS
VALIDCALL
L3ONLY
BBSALIAS
FULLDUP
SOFTDCD

The above display or update the corresponding parameter for a specified port,

eg   PACLEN 1 100
     PERSIST 2 50

If the third parameter is omitted, the current value is displayed.

It is not currently possible to update VALIDCALLS, but you can display
the current setting.


*** Warning ***  

At the moment the FRACK value is in 1/3sec units, and the TXDELAY is in
50ms units for HDLC cards, and 10ms units for KISS TNCs. I'll be sorting
this out when I get the time to rationalize the timer code, but in the 
meantime, I suggest you make a note of the current values before you
start fiddling. 

Also KISS users should note that the params are only sent to the TNC every
5 mins or so, so the updated values may not take effect for a while.
