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.
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 PPACLEN 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. System Params REMDUMP OBSINIT OBSMIN NODESINT L3TTL L4RETRIES L4TIMEOUT T3 NODEIDLETIME LINKEDFLAG IDINTERVAL MINQUAL FULLCTEXT HIDENODES L4DELAY L4WINDOW BTINTERVAL The above display or update the corresponding Node parameter. System Commands FINDBUFFS Used to help track down missing buffers if the buffer count goes very low. Normally should only be used if I request it GETPORTCTEXT Re-read your Port CTEXT files. See Port Specific CTEXT KISS p c v Send KISS command/value pair (eg for setting TXDELAY). Parameters are port, command and value (all in decimal) NODE ADD ALIAS:CALL QUAL NEIGHBOUR Add ALIAS:CALL to your Nodes table with Quality QUAL and Next Hop Node NEIGHBOUR NODE DEL CALL Delete CALL from NODES Table RECONFIG REBOOT ROUTES To update an entry, enter ROUTES Call Port Params eg ROUTES G8BPQ-2 2 100 - Set quality to 100 ROUTES G8BPQ-2 2 ! - Toggle 'Locked Route' flag ROUTES G8BPQ-2 2 100 ! - Set quality and toggle 'locked' flag SAVEMH SAVENODES SENDNODES STOPCMS p - Disable CMS acess on Telnet Port p. STARTCMS p - These can be used to simulate CMS or Internet outage. STOPPORT n - Close or reopen Port n. Enables another program to use the port STARTPORT n - to allow the tnc to be reconfigured without closing the node TELReconfig p ALL TELReconfig p USERS Reconfigure Telnet Port p. ALL does a conmplete reconfig and disconnects users. This is equivalent to EXTRESTART p 1. USERS just re-reads the USER records from bpq32.cfg. WL2KSYSOP WL2KSYSOP SET Display information from your WINLINK 2000 SYSOP record, or create a basic record if you don't have one.
