The values set are:

AUTOSAVE = 1
BBS = 1
BTINTERVAL = 60
BUFFERS = 999
C = 1
DESQVIEW = 0
EMSFLAG = 0
FULLCTEXT = 0
HIDENODES = 0
HOSTINTERRUPT = 127
IDINTERVAL = 10
IDLETIME = 900
IP = 0
L3TIMETOLIVE = 25
L4DELAY = 10
L4RETRIES = 3
L4TIMEOUT = 60
L4WINDOW = 4
LINKEDFLAG = 'A'
MAXCIRCUITS = 128
MAXDESTS = 250
MAXHOPS = 4
MAXLINKS = 64
MAXNEIGHBOURS = 64
MAXRTT = 90
MINQUAL = 150
NODE = 1
NODESINTERVAL = 30
OBSINIT = 6
OBSMIN = 5
PACLEN = 236
T3 = 180

NODECALL=GM8BPQ-2			; NODE CALLSIGN
