• Gate echomail to point node?

    From ryan@21:1/168 to All on Tuesday, October 20, 2020 06:24:44
    Hey guys,

    Question about Mystic serving my other BBS. I have a daydream board I'm
    working on and want to duplicate mail on that board. What would the steps be
    on the Mystic side of things to export all mail to my other board, and then serve as the upstream server for mail originating from my other board?

    Thanks!

    I have a few boards running (Synchronet, Telegard & Mystic) and I've experimented with having each as them "main" node. (For no other reason than just to re-learn these things after so many years).

    I set each "sub" board up as point of the main node.

    Mystic = 21:3/110
    Telegard = 21:3/110.1
    Synchronet = 21:3/110.2

    So I setup the new board with the point address and add that as a Node in Mystic. Set the FIX password in the node, which is the Areafix password of the point.

    Then you can send a netmail from the new "point" board to Mystic:

    To: Areafix
    Subject: <FIX Password>

    Body of message:

    %ALL (to subscribe to all echos)
    %RESCAN (to bring over the 250 most recent messages per echo)

    Or you can:

    +ECHO R=999 (Subscribe to an echo and get the most recent 999 messages)

    After that, mystic will process the Areafix request and send the messages on to the point.

    Thanks for the reply and the write-up. I'm going to experiment here this weekend. Cheers :)

    Warpslide, what is the URL for your Telegard BBS? I haven't seen Telegard in 20 some odd years! Great BBS package from back in the day, would love too see it.

    It's not accessible at the moment while I'm switching things up (moving
    mystic from the NUC to the Pi & re-formatting the NUC).

    In the meantime, check out Kevin/Bl00d's Telegard BBS running on OS/2:

    It's actually pretty cool!

    How do you like the NUC? I was thinking of getting one to host my new BBS
    Door game so that BBSes can connect to it centrally. Having the extra HP available to process more (the game needs some power for enemy path calculations) is why I think the NUC would be advantageous but wanted to know how others that own them feel about them.

    I have one that I use as an emulation station and it's fantastic. Might be overkill for a doorgame, but hey...computing horsepower is cheap these days :)

    I think the NUC would be advantageous but wanted to know how others that own them feel about them.

    I quite like it for two reasons: Size & Power Consumption.

    The old "server" I had was a large HP tower w/ an i5, a DVD burner & 2 spinning 1TB drives. It still works & does the job, but I don't really need something that big & powerful.

    The NUC literally fits in one hand, has a 128GB MSATA SSD as the boot drive and a 2nd 2.5" 256GB SSD for any extras (which is currently empty) & runs off of a 65W power brick.

    I have the 2013 version which I got off of eBay for $130:

    I have a Wemo Insight Plug which tells me how much power whatever is plugged into it uses. I should plug the NUC into it for a month to get an idea how it costs to run.

    Hello Hayes Zyxel!

    I'm running my BBS on one of those (i3, 8 GB, 250 GB SSD) and it's cool and quiet and has been working like a charm for two years now.

    The downside would be that there appears to be no fan specs available without tearing the NUC apart and checking the label, so hard to get one in advance (like I did for my NAS).

    Best regards
