• odd binkit quirk

    From Dumas Walker@CAPCITY2 to ALL on Wednesday, July 14, 2021 17:04:00
    Apparently, one of my FTN downlinks managed to get his DNS entry
    accidentally set to 127.0.0.1. So binkit attempts to connect with my own system.

    When it gets to the "evnt BINKIT Authentication successful..." dialog, the session hangs. I figured out at about 1530 this afternoon that I had a
    session hung since sometime around 2300 last night that was preventing
    several other events from executing.

    I tried connecting with the system with binkd. It does not hang but instead checks the akas and realizes it is connected to the wrong system:

    16:53 [18219] rc(18220)=0
    16:53 [18219] the queue is empty, quitting...

    That is not something I would expect happens too often but thought I should point it out.
