I notice that there are 2 or 3 systems that poll 2:25/21.
There is NO NEED to do so as your system will NEVER but never, receive any traffic - ECHO's or FILES.
Please stop polling as all transient traffic for both files and echo's is sent direct only to 2:250/1 for onwards transmission to all downlinks that are connected for each.
The system at 2:25/21 is a very basic computer based around a Raspberry Pi 3B+ which uses a low powered Arm CPU. That means it takes up very little electricity.
Doing what it does with the Elist system and the mbse bbs system it works well but un-needed / un-wanted received polls take up processing resources that could effect normal operations and more importantly cost more money in electricity and the cost of which is increasing almost weekly let alone monthly.
Please stop !
