• QWK network problem

    From Futbbs@VERT to All on Wed Apr 20 17:41:55 2022
    I connected my BBS to the DOVE-Net QWK network, but the user name of the post after posting is "futbbs" (the user name of the QWK connection account), which is different from other BBS "XXXX@XXXX ", where did I have problem?

    On Vertrauen, did you create your QWK account for your BBS propertly? When you set up your QWK account on Vertrauen, Vertrauen should ask whether it's for QWK networking, and you should answer Yes to that.

    From here:
    https://wiki.synchro.net/ref:qwknet

    "A QWKnet node on a Synchronet BBS must be created specifically for QWK networking. This is done by using the node's QWK ID as the user name on the BBS and the sysop must give the account the 'Q' restriction. This restriction allows the uploaded REP packets to come from any user name"

    I remember I chose "yes". Where can I check it?

    The easiest way to check is that when you log in, if you're immediately sent to the QWK menu (and you may also have to press ? to see the menu ANSI), then you've probably set it up as a QWK account. If you're shown all the BBS's intro screens and get to the BBS's regular main menu, you've probably set it up as a non-QWK account.

    Offhand I don't remember if there's a way to check for sure, or if there's even a way to chage a regular account to a QWK account. If you've set it up as a non-QWK account, you may have to set up your account again.

    Send a message here to Digital Man and ask him to set the QWK account
    exemption for this account on his BBS.

    Your FROM name changed to Launchpad, so something is different. :)
