• Dove-Net & QWK

    From JohnBWilloughby to all on Saturday, April 10, 2021 10:50:45
    Sorry for all the questions. But I guess quite a few things have changed since 2001 when I first set my board up.

    Going thru the How-To pages and the How to Join Dove-Net, http://wiki.synchro.net/howto:dove-net
    the Configure your QWKnet Hub looks very different from the one I originally set up.

    ║ │ Hub System ID VERT
    #1 -> ║ │Pack Command Line %@zip -jD %f %s
    #1 -> ║ │Unpack Command Line %@unzip -Coj %f %s -d %g
    #2 -> ║ │Call-out Command Line *qnet-ftp %s dove.synchro.net YOURPASS


    #1 I am using pkzip/ pkunzip , is the zip / unzip using the built in OS zip/unzip function ?
    #2 I am calling a .bat file :
    vert.bat
    ftp -s:c:\sbbs\exec\vert.ftp | find /v "Upload complete"
    if not errorlevel 1 del c:\sbbs\data\vert.rep
    vert.ftp file :
    open dove.synchro.net
    QWK ID
    QWK Password
    hash
    put c:\sbbs\data\vert.rep vert.rep
    get vert.qwk c:\sbbs\data\vert.qwk
    quit

    #2a - If I change to : *qnet-ftp %s dove.synchro.net YOURPASS , only the QWK password is needed and not the QWK ID ?

    I believe that I am not getting all the possible Dove-Net boards, so I could call in with my QWK ID and add the sub boards that I am missing ?

    With v3.19, just set the archive type to "ZIP" and leave the pack and unpack lines blank or as-is (doesn't matter becaues ZIP support is now built-in).

    You don't need any of that.

    Correct.

    Yes.
