• Updated BINKD.CFG

    From Phoobar@21:2/147 to All on Monday, May 04, 2020 12:13:03
    Made some changes to my original BINK.CFG to go from a 5D to a 4D setup.

    Do have a question about the paths for the log & the watch file for BINKD.
    Will it be better to have \\ than just \?

    Thank you to everyone who helped me sort this out.

    log d:\binkd\binkd.log

    Found out that using the \\ will create the *.log file...so will have done this.

    inbound-temp d:\\fe\\inbound\\temp

    BINKD threw a fit about this line...so switched it to temp-inbound & it works.

    pid-file d:\binkd\binkd.pid

    Same as #1.

    BINKD does start up & attempts to poll a hub when I do it manually. Here's my BINKS.LOG:

    It's a start! Where do I go from here...other than updating the version?

    Thanks to everyone who helped me get this far!

    Hello Phoobar,

    log d:\binkd\binkd.log

    Found out that using the \\ will create the *.log file...so will have
    done this.

    inbound-temp d:\\fe\\inbound\\temp

    BINKD threw a fit about this line...so switched it to temp-inbound &
    it works.

    Yep, dunno where you got that from but get it outa there.. ;)

    temp-inbound is what you want.

    pid-file d:\binkd\binkd.pid

    04 May 12:36:48 [1] BEGIN, binkd/0.9.4 binkd.cfg

    I remember that version, that's an oldie but a goodie!

    I'm going to plonk BINKD104.ZIP in your inbound at 1:340/1000. Try that maybe?

    That's odd.. the above all looks good. I just polled 3:770/1 without issues. I'm going to send you a very upto date binkd in a minute here. You could try that. It's for OS/2. What OS is this running on?

    Ttyl :-),

    Oh yeah. Compared to some of the ones I've done in the past...I would take
    this mistake any day of the week.

    Am running this on ArcaOS 5.0.4. Can't believe I got that far & had it work. Thank you...thank you...thank you for letting me know I was successful. I
    have to work the next 4 days...but knowing I was close makes me very happy
    that I am close.
